Robyn Hitchcock - Heaven chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
From the 1985 Fegmania album, a minor hit. 

To play to the original recording you need to capo on the 3rd fret, or transpose to F. 

However... this arrangement is in D and based on his contemporary acoustic performances. 

He rarely plays Heaven rarely now, and when he does so, 
he plays in D, i.e. no capo as below. 

Whatever - a great, great song!
