F C G And everybody's working day is done
C G/B Am Am/G If heaven was a town it would be my town

VERSE 2 =======
C G/B Am Am/G If heaven was a pie it would be cherry
F C GCool and sweet and heavy on your tongue
C G/B Am Am/G And just one bite would satisfy your hunger

C G Am Am/G If heaven was a train it'd be a fast one
F C G To take this weary traveller round the bend
C G/B Am Am/G And if heaven was a tear it'd be my last one
F G C G/B And you'd be in my arms again
