If Heaven

CapoII  (in E with no capo)

D                        A            Bm	
If heaven was an hour it would be twilight
              G                               D
When the fireflies start their dancin' on the lawn
D               A             Bm
And supper's on the stove and mama's laughin'
A        G                      A
And everybody's work and day is done

D                       A           Bm
If heaven was a town it would be my town
                G        D
On a summer day in 1985
D                       A                Bm
And everything I wanted was out there waitin'
A       G      A          D
And everyone I loved was still alive

Bm        A      G          D A
Don't cry a tear for me now baby
Bm            A       G            A
There comes a time we all must say goodbye
D      A             Bm		
And if that's what heaven's made of 
D             A              D
Ya know I, I ain't afraid to die

If heaven was a pie it would be cherry
So cool and sweet and heavy on the tongue
Just one bit would satisfy your hunger
And there'd always be enough for everyone

If heaven was a train it sure would be a fast one
That could take this weary traveler round the bend
If heaven was a tear it'd be my last one
And you'd be in my arms again

Don't cry a tear for me now baby
There comes a time we all must say goodbye
And if that's what heaven's made of 
Ya know I, I ain't afraid to die

Yeah if that's what heaven's made of
Ya know I, I ain't afraid to die
