How To Play

Capo: 4th fret

VERSE
 
    C                  D     Em
You sit there in your heart-ache
    G              C
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 C                D       Em
To save you from your old ways
 G
You play forgiveness
C
Watch it now Here he comes
 
 
CHORUS
 
    C                       D Em
He doesnt look a thing like Je-sus
            G
But he talks like a gentleman
 C
Like you imagined
              D Em
When you were young
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL
 
G       C
 
 
VERSE
 
 C
Can we climb this mountain
 D     Em
I dont know
 G                        C
Higher now than ever before
 C                           D       Em
I know we can make it if we take it slow
 G
Let's take it easy
  C
Easy now,  watch it go
 
 
CHORUS
 
 C                             D     Em
We're burning down the highway sky- line
         G
On the back of a hurricane
 C
That started turning
               D  Em     G    C
When you were   young
               D  Em     G    C
When you were   young
 
       C           D          Em
And sometimes you close your eyes
              G                      C
And see the place where you used to live
               D   Em     G     C
When you were    young
 

BRIDGE
 
                Am
They say the devil's water It ain't so sweet
                             Em
You dont have to drink right now
                      G
But you can dip your feet
                        D
Every once in a little while

You sit there in your heart-ache
    G                       C
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 C                D       Em
To save you from your old ways
 G
You play forgiveness
C
Watch it now Here he comes
 
 
CHORUS
 
    C                       D   Em
He doesnt look a thing like Je-sus

When you were young

I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus
