G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

Every Sunday in my Mamaís Church, Iíd sneak some money out of Mamaís purse

D†††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

While she was praying I would slip away; Down at the poolhall, Iíd play all day

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††Am

Iíd meet her home, and sheíd shake her head; ďYouíre fluffing pillows on the devilís bedĒ

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Iíd tell her, ďMom, I know just how you feel. I made enough to cover all our bills.Ē

††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

††††††††† Too bad for Heaven and too good for Hell; Little wings are better than big tails

††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††† ††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

††††††††† I donít expect to sit at Godís right hand; But I can empty heavenís garbage cans

††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††† B††††††††††††† Em††† C††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††† G

††††††††† Whoa, hope thereís room on those golden streets; For stray dogs and alley cats like me

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

If they wonít let me in the big front gate; Maybe I could go in the back way

D††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

My halo probably wouldnít shine real bright; But itíll get me through the clouds at night

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

Now, I donít care if Iím the last to sing; Or if Iíve got the smallest set of wings

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Iíd watch the little devils down on Earth; And follow them when they sneak out of church
