Something to believe in

Poison

Tom: E
       E  
Well I see him on the tv  
Asus2  
Preachin? ?bout the promised land  
   E  
He tells me to believe in jesus  
               Asus2  
And steals the money from my hand  
E                 F#m 
Some say he was a good man  
  G#m                Asus2 
But lord I think he sinned, yeah  
  
  
E  
Twenty-two years of mental tears  
        Asus2 
Cries a suicidal vietnam vet  
E 
Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore  
            Asus2 
To find his country didn?t want him back  
 E 
Their bullets took his best friend in saigon  
                      Asus2 
Our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets  
     E    
In a time I don?t remember  
     Asus2 
In a war he can?t forget  
            E                     F#m  
He cried forgive me for what I?ve done there  
        G#m                      A  
Cause I never meant the things I did  
  
  
Chorus:  
                         E  
And give me something to believe in  
             Asus2  
If there?s a lord above  
                         E  
And give me something to believe in  
    Asus2  
Oh, lord arise  
  
E  
My best friend died a lonely man  
        Asus2  
In some palm springs hotel room  
   E 
I got the call last christmas eve  
         Asus2  
And they told me the news  
  
  E  
I tried all night not to break down and cry  
       Asus2  
As the tears rolled down my face  
  E    
I felt so cold and empty  
       Asus2  
Like a lost soul out of place  
        E               F#m  
And the mirror, mirror on the wall  
        G#m               A  
Sees my smile it fades again  
  
  
{Chorus}  
  
            E             F#m       
Sometimes I wish to God I didn?t know now  
    G#m                  A  
The things I didn?t know then  
Road you gotta take me home  
  
{Solo}  
  
               E  
I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street  
     Asus2  
Like bodies in an open grave  
 E 
Underneath the broken old neon sign  
     Asus2  
That used to read jesus saves  
  E  
A mile away live the rich folks  
          Asus2  
And I see how they?re living it up  
          E 
While the poor they eat from hand to mouth  
             Asus2  
The rich is drinkin? from a golden cup  
            E                  
And it just makes me wonder  
F#m         G#m          A  
Why so many lose, so few win  
  
  
{Chorus}  
  
  
You take the high road  
And I?ll take the low road   
  
         E              F#m               
Yeah Sometimes I wish I didn?t know now  
    G#m                    A  
The things I didn?t know then  
  
                             E  
And give me something to believe in
