"Ain't No Reason" – Brett Dennen

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 (I’ve highlighted the first)

               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
