Tune drop-D, capo 2.  Alternately capo drop-D, which is in fact how I
play it and tabbed it here.  The only problem is that when playing the
6th string 2nd fret note that the capo doesn't cover, the capo sort of
gets in the way.  (see the "Hint" about partial capoing on my tab page)

[verse 1]
I don't need no woman to kiss me
I don't need no man to stand by my side
I don't need to slake my thirst with whiskey
Don't need to shuffle cards to pass the time

[verse 2]
'Cause the stars are bright and silvery
And with the dry ache of a long coyote's whine
My Savior's calling and I'm listening
Time to saddle up my pony and ride, 'cause

[chorus]
Heaven is waiting just past the horizon
Just over the mesas and across the great divide
And faith is blazing this trail that I ride on
Up the mountain I'm praying I have the strength to climb

[verse 3]
I ain't lookin' for no seven golden cities
But I know there's a fortune somewhere to find
There's a peace I hear whispering through the pinions
And a love that's taller than the ponderosa pines, and

[repeat chorus]

[bridge]
So don't ask for no lengthy explanations when
There ain't no reasons quite wild enough
No words could be as tender
It's greater than the fears that we imagine
More than the love that we remember
It's always just beyond the pass
And I must go, 'cause

[repeat chorus]

Heaven is waiting
Heaven is waiting
