CHORDS/SPECIAL VOICINGS
 
Use the voicings on the higher frets to emphasize the riff-like character
of these parts. The lower voicings sound good in the verses, because they
do not detract from the singing.

VERSE
  D/A   Am7             A7sus4
I look around me, and I see
      D6/A                      D/A        Am7
Folks leading more constructive lives than me
 
D/A         Am7          A7sus4
They don't do this for reward,
         D6/A                     D/A      Am7
They are walking in the footsteps of their Lord
 
    D/A     Am7                  A7sus4
And for themselves, they make no claims
         D6/A                     D/A        Am7
They may die without the world knowing their names
 
 
CHORUS
    D         Em    D
But they will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                     D
Home to Jesus, heads held high,
 
          Em    D
They will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                     D
Home to Jesus, heads held high,
 
          Em    D
They will ride, ride,
Cmaj7
Home to Jesus
 
 
VERSE
D/A       Am7          A7sus4
Some good people, will deny
   D6/A                           D/A       Am7
Anything that they can't see with their own eye
 
D/A        Am7            A7sus4
They don't walk, in God's light,
          D6/A                   D/A        Am7
They just walk the way they do because it's right
 
 
CHORUS
    D         Em    D
And they will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                     D
Home to Jesus, heads held high,
 
          Em    D
They will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                     D
Home to Jesus, heads held high,
 
          Em    D
They will ride, ride,
Cmaj7
Home to Jesus

VERSE
D/A    Am7              A7sus4
People hear me, who can know (who can know)
       D6/A                           D/A    Am7
If our time on Earth's the soundcheck or the show?
 
D/A   Am7                      A7sus4
Ask a good man, and there's no doubt
           D6/A                    D/A     Am7
He’ll have too much on his mind to work it out
 
 
CHORUS
    D       Em    D
But he will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                    D
Home to Jesus, head held high,
 
        Em    D
He will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                    D
Home to Jesus, head held high,
 
        Em    D
He will ride, ride,
Cmaj7                    D
Home to Jesus, head held high,
