God Give Me Strength

Tabbed by John Lewitt <emplex@istar.ca>

Notes: This song is ideally suited to the piano, but a strong voice can carry it on the guitar. The 'Asus' chords in the bridge are more of a counter point, they are used in the song but not as the base of the song.
 
  Intro: Gm9 D (4x)
  
Bm G D Now I have nothing, so God give me strength C#m7 C#m F#m7 'Cause I'm weak in her [his] wake C#m F#m F#7 And if I'm strong I might still break Bm A G And I don't have anything to share Bm E A That I won't throw away into the air G A That song is sung out G A This bell is rung out Em F#m A [He] She was the light that I'd bless Em F#m A [He] She took my last chance at happiness Gm7 Bm Gm9 Em D G Em A So God give me strength, God give me strength (second verse same as first) I can't hold onto [him] her, God give me strength When the phone doesn't ring And I'm lost in imagining Everything that kind of love is worth As I tumble back down to the earth That song is sung out This bell is rung out [He] She was the light that I'd bless [He] She took my last chance at happiness So God give me strength, Gm9 Em D G Em God if [he'd] she'd grant me [his] her indulgence and decline (e, f#, g#) Asus4 A Asus2 I might as well wipe [him] her from my memory (e, f#, g#) Asus4 A Asus2 Fracture the spell as [he] she becomes my enemy Bm E A Maybe I was washed out like a lip-print on his shirt Bm E A See, I'm only human, I want him to hurt Asus4 A A7 I want him, I want him to hurt [instrumental - repeat structure of first verse, these last two lines are picked up as you reach the end of the verse)] Since I lost the power to pretend That there could ever be a happy ending That song is sung out This bell is rung out [He] She was the light that I'd bless [He] She took my last chance at happiness So God give me strength, God give me strength Gm D Wipe her from my life... I might as well... God give me strength... God give me strength... I might as well
