The title song from the Here As In Heaven album is a powerful song of invitation. It’s a long, slow ballad, and the excellent songwriting takes the forefront
In our resources we play it in the key of C. The album version is in the key of D, which I find pretty high for most male vocalists.

Chords used in this song

1 2 3 4 ,... D UDUD UDUD DU,...
