Brett Dennen – Aint No Reason Live tab

Ain't No Reason (Live) - Brett Dennen

Tabbed by: Ace

I tabbed this song out by watching this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KET-ifhhp7A)
and listening to the recorded version.  As a result, the verse portions do
not sound exactly like the recorded song; I modeled that section after how
he plays it live in the youtube video.  The parts in parentheses you can
choose to play if you wish, they are just filler which I like to play to
make the transitions smooth.  If you have any corrections, please comment
and I will update the tab.

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, C We do it everyday. Verse 2 Preachers on the podium speaking of saints Paupers on the sidewalk begging for change Old ladies laughing from the fire escape, cursing my name 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 you whole life working for something, Just to have it taken away Verse 4 People walk around pushing back their debts Wearing pay checks like necklaces and bracelets Talking 'bout nothing, not thinking 'bout death Every little heartbeat, every little breath Verse 5 People walk a tight rope on a razor’s edge Carrying 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 Verse 6 There ain't no reason things are this way It's how they always been and they intend to stay I don’t know why I say the things that I say, But I say them anyway CHORUS 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 my free, yes. Verse 7 Prison walls still standing tall Some things never change at all Keep on building prisons, gonna fill them all Keep building bombs, gonna drop them all Verse 8 Working your fingers bare to the bone Breaking your back, make you sell your soul Like a lung, it's filled with coal, sufficating slow Verse 9 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 10 The air on my skin and the world under my toes Slavery is stitched into the fabric of my clothes Chaos and commotion wherever I go Love, I try to follow CHORUS 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 my free, yes.
