Kevin Drew (of Broken Social Scene and Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew) and Sam Roberts (allegedly, he’s the “king of pranks” and sometimes slips acid into the drinks of the bands he tours with; from an interview I saw, possibly with the Stills) sing the chorus vocals on this one.
Riff VS Chords
The record version is essentially the same riff repeated over and over again. When he plays it acoustically, the guitarist (one of the best I’ve had the pleasure see in concert; don’t worry if you can’t emulate his style) uses a lot of variants on G and C chords; mostly hanging on a G. You’ll be pretty safe sticking with G for the whole song and just switching up to C on “the world is a ghetto” and “feel your sorrow” in the chorus.

Kevin Drew and Sam Roberts) Riff (play throughout): G C A|--------------------3--| E|---3-(repeat a lot)----| Chords: G: 320033 C: x32010 (Chorus) Ghetto Heaven The world is a ghetto Freedom, oh yeah Feel your sorrow (Verse 1) 5:35 and I'm living senseless Just another homie picking on the defenceless Don't request yet, nothing really to mention Lookin through the mirror and I'm making a censure Whoa, black people in the morning breeze Came around the corner and she caused me to freeze up Ease up, watch how the world could tease us, ease us But only G.O.D can please us Hey, got my ride and my Momma's too Show me how to roll without breakin the rules Payin my dues, MC's droppin out choose Decides to get with lyrical facts, don't stop Whoa, black people time to shine Everything is fine when you're losing your mind I'm like a black alley cat, freestyle batter-up Doesn't get better than that, is that a gat in the back? (Chorus) (Verse 2) And the Valkyrie's blood runs red through the halls of the dead oh the warrior's blood runs red through the hearts of the dead the Valkyrie's blood runs red through the halls of the dead And the life you're been lookin for in the world that you live 2x In the name, we were all born in the flame Not the same, but under the moon on the desert plane We roam, home, take the coast ghost I saw with my naked eye, way to close now I was the son of a man on a mission Who worked with his hands and brought him the former land In the inter-land, swingin the mic like an axe With a fear in the atmosphere, layin down tracks (Chorus) Tabbed by Matthew Gruman http://matthewgruman.com Lyrics: http://www.music-lyrics-chord.com/K-OS/288497-Valhalla.html
