Intro: G

Verse 1:
G
The air was more than human and
G
the heat was more than hungry and
G                                           Em
the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes
G
the bulls were running wild
G
because they're big and mean and sacred and
G                                           Em
the children were playing cricket with no shoes

A
the next morning we woke up, man
A
with a seven hour drive
C
well there we were stuck in Port Blaire
C                                 C7
where boats break and children stare

Chorus:
G                   D
there were so many fewer questions
      Em                A                 C        Am
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Am    G                  D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em                A                 C       Am
when stars were still just the holes to heaven

Verse 2:
G
disembarking from the port
G
with no mistakes of any sort
G                                  Em
moving south the engine running smooth
G
officials were quite friendly
G
once we drowned them with our sweet talk
G                                        Em
we bribed them with our cigarettes and booze

A
the next morning we woke up man
A
with the sunrise to the right
C
moving back north to Port Blaire
C                                 C7
where boats break and children stare

Chorus:
G                    D
there were so many fewer questions
       Em               A                 C         Am
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
          G                  D
yes and there were so many fewer questions
       Em               A                  C       Am
when stars were still just the holes to heaven

End:
G Em G Em G Em G Em G

  1. the song name is actually Holes To Heaven and the chorus seems slightly off
