The Highwomen Lyrics


            [Intro]
E   B   F#   B


[Verse 1]
B                          E
All my heroes are going to heaven
        B                             F#
All the junkies and the liars and the fools
B                                    E             B
All good-timin' men will leave their voices on the wind
       B              F#           B
It's a kindness we cannot repay to them


[Chorus]
          E                  B                                E
There's a choir singin' in a southern accent, a fiddle in the band
          B                                  F#       F#7
There's a "Hallelujah!" on the lips of every dying man
E               B   E                     B
Mama, don't you cry when they're dead and gone
E                   B                       F#    B
Jesus, he loves his sinners and heaven is a honky tonk
E       B       F#         B
Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, hoo-oo-oo [Verse 2] B I won't say their names E B They've been said enough in vain B F# Just the memory and the thousand years of smiles B The lines around your eyes E B Tell me you're not far behind F# B But I can see the livin' free was worth the while [Chorus] E B E There's a choir singin' in a southern accent, a fiddle in the band B F# F#7 There's a "Hallelujah!" on the lips of every dying man E B E B Mama, don't you cry when they're dead and gone E B F# B Jesus, he loves his sinners and heaven is a honky tonk E B F# B Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, hoo-oo-oo [Verse 3] B E B Happiness, they say is a jukebox that always plays F# And a lonesome heart ain't lonely anymore B E B Every soul that dare passed on is now covered in neon F# B They dance with silver wings on wooden floors [Chorus] E B E There's a choir singin' in a southern accent, a fiddle in the band B F# F#7 There's a "Hallelujah!" on the lips of every dying man E B E B Mama, don't you cry when they're dead and gone E B F# B Jesus, he loves his sinners and heaven is a honky tonk E B F# B Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, hoo-oo-oo
