Dear God, hope you got the letter and I pray you can make it better down here
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image, see them starving on their feet,
[D riff] [Am riff]
'Cause they don't get enough to eat from God. I can't believe in you.
Dear God, sorry to disturb you but I feel that I should be heard loud and clear.
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears.
And all the people that you made in your image, see them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet about God,
[Am riff] C D
I can't believe in you.
FM7 C G C
Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
FM7 A7sus4/D A/C# C C/E E7
Did you make mankind after we made you?
And the devil, too?
Dear God, don't know if you've noticed but
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book.
And us crazy humans wrote it you should take a look.
And all the people that you made in your image still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain't, and so do you, dear God.
I can't believe in... I don't believe in...
I won't believe in Heaven and Hell, no saints, no sinners, no Devil, as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown
You're always letting us humans down
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found
And it's the same the whole world 'round
The hurt I see helps to compound
That Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody's unholy hoax
And if you're up there you'd perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve
If there's one thing I don't believe in...
[Am riff] Am
It's you, dear God
