Ain't No Reason

	  "Ain't No Reason" – Brett Dennen 

Tabbed By - Michael Niland - mikey_niland@msn.com 

This should be a 100% accurate chord version, I know Brett picks out some of the notes  
the record but you can try figure it out yourself. 

Look out for the quick Dm C in the middle of each verse 


               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 every day 

                 Bb                 F 
Preachers on the podium speakin' of saints 
                C                    Dm 
Prophets on the sidewalk beggin' for change 
    C      Bb                     F 
Old ladies laughin' from the fire escape 
           C 
Cursin' my name 

Repeat these chords again through each verse 

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 your whole life workin' for something 
Just to have it taken away 

People walk around pushin' back their debts 
Wearin' paychecks like necklaces and bracelets 
Talkin' 'bout nothin', not thinkin' 'bout death 
Every little heartbeat, every little breath 

People walk a tightrope on a razor's edge 
Carryin' 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 

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 I say 
But I say them anyway 

                          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 me free,     yes 


       Bb                   F 
Prison walls still standin' tall 
     C                      Dm 
Some things never change at all 
    C            Bb                       F 
Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them all 
                 C 
Keep on buildin' bombs, gonna drop them all 

             Bb                  F 
Workin' your fingers bare to the bones 
              C                        Dm 
Breakin' your back, make you sell your soul 
   C   Bb                      F 
Like a lung that's filled with coal 
            C 
Suffocatin' slow 

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 

The air on my skin and world under my toes 
Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes 
Chaos and commotion wherever I go 
Love I try to follow 


                          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 me free,     yes 


There ain't no reason things are this way 
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay 
I can't explain why we live this way 
We do it every day
