Aint No Reason Tab
-------------------BRETT DENNEN - AINT NO REASON---------------------------


      F             Bb          F               C                Dm

      Bb          F                   C
                                                 There aint no reason...
        F               C                Dm

     F             C

(Brett now roughly plays the intro picking over the chords sometimes improvising. Sounds 
if you do the whole song in the picking from the beginning, but chords sound good aswell)

[Verse 1]
                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day

[Verse 2]
                 Bb                 F
Preachers on the podium speakin' of saints
                C                    Dm
Prophets on the sidewalk beggin' for change
    C      Bb                     F
Old ladies laughin' from the fire escape
Cursin' my name

(chords remain the same for all verses)

[Verse 3]
I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You can spend your whole life workin' for something
Just to have it taken away

[Verse 4]
People walk around pushin' back their debts
Wearin' paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
Talkin' 'bout nothin', not thinkin' 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath

[Verse 5]
People walk a tightrope on a razor's edge
Carryin' their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence

[Repeat Verse 1]

                          Dm      Bb          C
But love will come set me free
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I do          believe
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I know it     will
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     yes

[Verse 6]
Prison walls still standin' tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on buildin' bombs, gonna drop them all

[Verse 7]
Workin' your fingers bare to the bones
Breakin' your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung that's filled with coal
Suffocatin' slow

[Verse 8]
The wind blows wild and I may move
But politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no reason or a three-piece suit
To argue the truth

[Verse 9]
The air on my skin and world under my toes
Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow

[repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Verse 1]
