How To Play

INTRO
 
Ab  Absus4 Ab  Absus4
 
 
VERSE 1
 
Ab            Absus4             Ab
  I've gone so far from my home
             Ab/Bb   Ab/C            Absus4/Db
I've seen the       world and I have known
           Bbm11   Absus4/Db
So many secrets
             Absus4/Gb  Ebsus4
I wish now I did not   know
Ab                  Absus4             Ab
  'Cause they have crept into my heart
            Ab/Bb  Ab/C       Absus4/Db
They have left    it cold and dark
      Bbm11   Absus4/Db
And bleeding
             Absus4/Gb  Ebsus4
Bleeding and falling apart
 
 
CHORUS
 
         Ab                       Absus4
And everybody used to tell me big boys don't cry
           Ab                          Absus4
Well, I've been around enough to know that that was the lie
     Fm                                   Db                Ebsus4  Eb
That held back the tears in the eyes of a thousand prodigal sons
             Ab                        Absus4
Well, we are children no more, we have sinned and grown old
        Ab                        Absus4
And our Father still waits and He watches down the road
           Fm                Db                 Ebsus4  Eb
To see the crying boys come running back to His arms
               Ab        Absus4             Ab
And be growing young, nah, nah growing young, nah, nah, nah, nah
 
 
VERSE 2
 
Ab            Absus4             Ab
  I've seen silver turn to dross
        Ab/Bb   Ab/C                Absus4/Db
Seen the       very best there ever was
           Bbm11   Absus4/Db
And I'll tell you
         Absus4/Gb     Ebsus4
It ain't worth what it costs
Ab          Absus4                 Ab
   And I remember my father's house
        Ab/Bb  Ab/C               Absus4/Db
What I would  - n't give right now
           Bbm11   Absus4/Db
Just to see him
                             Absus4/Gb   Ebsus4
And hear him tell me that he loves me so much
 
 
CHORUS
 
         Ab                       Absus4
And everybody used to tell me big boys don't cry
           Ab                          Absus4
Well, I've been around enough to know that that was the lie
     Fm                                   Db                Ebsus4  Eb
That held back the tears in the eyes of a thousand prodigal sons
             Ab                        Absus4
Well, we are children no more, we have sinned and grown old
        Ab                        Absus4
And our Father still waits and He watches down the road
           Fm                Db                 Ebsus4  Eb
To see the crying boys come running back to His arms
               Ab        Absus4             Ab
And be growing young, nah, nah growing young, nah, nah, nah, nah
 
 
BRIDGE
 
Eb/Db         Db                    Cm7
  And when I thought that I was all alone
                                           Db2
It was Your voice I heard calling me back home
      Fm7            Db                    Gb*     Ebsus Eb
And I wonder now Lord, what was it made me wait so long
Eb/Db               Db                       Cm7
  And what kept You waiting for me all that time
                                        Db2
Was Your love stronger than my foolish pride?
          Fm         Db                        Gb       Ebsus Eb
Will You take me back, take me back and let me be Your child?
 
 
Ab                    Absus4            Ab
  'Cause I've been broken now I've been saved
           Ab/Bb  Ab/C                       Absus4/Db
I've learned to cry and I've learned how to pray
           Bbm11   Absus4/Db
And I'm learning
                  Absus4/Gb  Ebsus4
I'm learning even I can be   changed
 
CHORUS
 
         Ab                       Absus4
And everybody used to tell me big boys don't cry
           Ab                          Absus4
Well, I've been around enough to know that that was the lie
     Fm                                   Db                Ebsus4  Eb
That held back the tears in the eyes of a thousand prodigal sons
             Ab                        Absus4
Well, we are children no more, we have sinned and grown old
        Ab                        Absus4
And our Father still waits and He watches down the road
           Fm                Db                 Ebsus4  Eb
To see the crying boys come running back to His arms
               Ab                 Absus4    Ab
And be growing young, nah, nah, nah growing young, nah, nah, nah, nah
