10000 Maniacs
Song begins with a descending six stroke pick played quickly, mandolin-style, on high E string on each of the 
following frets; 19,17,16,14,12,9,7, and 5.  [This section actually was played on an organ in the original].  
Descending passage is played twice.

E                 A
Heaven...is this heaven?

E                 A        
Heaven...is this heaven? 

E                 A            E
Heaven...is this heaven...where we are?

E                 D               A                E 
See them walking, if you dare, or if you call that walking

E                 D                  A               F#m        E
Stumble, stagger, fall and drag themselves along the streets of heaven


E                             A                      E
Where is the blessed table to feed all who hunger on earth?

E                    A                    E
Welcomed and seated, each one is joyfully served

E                 D               A                E 
See them walking, if you dare, or if you call that walking

E                 D                  A               F#m        E
Stumble, stagger, fall and drag themselves along the streets of heaven


E                  A                            E
Where is the halo, that should glow 'round your face?

E                                   A                              E
And where are the wings that should grow from your shoulders, pray show them to me?

D        A                E              A
Sobering sights I've seen in the City of Angels 

E             D         A        E               F#m   E
have all been one rude awakening that was due to me in heaven.


Repeat opening descending passage on high E string


D        A                E              A
Sobering sights I've seen in the City of Angels 

E             D         A        E               F#m   E
have all been one rude awakening that was due to me in heaven.


E                              A                 E
There would be heavenly music, I was convinced before...

E                                    A                    E
A host of the dearly to meet me with hosannas sung at the door

E         D        A                E              A
But these sobering sights I've seen in the City of Angels 

E             D         A        E               F#m                Em     E
have all been one rude awakening that was due to me in this city of fallen angels.
