Old 97s - Champaign Illinois chords

      
GThe bottom line's been snorted
C GThe bottom card's been dealt
DNo one knows like you know right now
C GHow truly bad it felt
GAll your life you wasted, oh
C GDreamin' about the day
DWhen worker bees kill off their queen
C GAnd carry all her eggs away
CHORUS
COh, and if you die fearing God
G CAnd painfully employed
G DNo, you will not go to heaven
C GYou'll go to Champaign, Illinois
GUp north is Chicago
C GWhere booze makes no one blush
DMemory comes back to you
C GIn a double bourbon rush
GThe memories aren't all bad
C GAnd neither, my friend, are you
DThere is an argument that there must be some heaven meant
C GFor hearts that are half true
CHORUS
CAnd if you spend your whole life
G CRollin' horses into Troy
G DNo, you will not go to heaven
C GYou'll go to Champaign, Illinois
G DNo, you will not go to heaven
C GYou'll go to Champaign, Illinois
GRoll on blacktop highway
C GCircles toward the sun
DSpringfield's in the distance
C GAnd that's the last big one
GAfter that comes judgment
C GAnd judgment will be swift
DYou will be eliminated
C GBut here's a parting gift
CHORUS
COh, and if you die fearing God
G CAnd painfully employed
G DNo, you will not go to heaven
C GYou'll go to Champaign, Illinois
