My Own Hands 
by Andy Cloninger 1998, Dog Named David 
>From the Awakening Compilation Vol. 2 
Tab by Zack at OBU!!! Go Bison (  

Intro:  B   A   E  Count 1,2,3,4  

Verse 1  

B                           A 
Wait a minute now, I thought I'd figured this one out            
             E                                     B 
It's like I paid the ticket twice but I never sat down 
B                              A 
Waiting for a reason in this shadow of my doubt 
E                               B 
And everybody's pushing me around  

Verse 2  

B                            A 
I read the signs like I was getting somewhere 
E                                 B 
Caught between my prayers and my tendency to swear 
B                                   A 
That you'd be the one like it was written in the sky 
E                                 B 
    By the finger of the needs of I   


B                            A 
Well, I don't mean to be so cynical,  
E                                    B 
But sometimes I think I've got the plan 
B                              A 
Throw it all together just to see it fall apart 
E                         B 
I'm taking matters in my own hands   

Verse 3  

B                           A 
Wait a minute now, Its all gone to Hell          
          E                                  B 
I try to get some water just to quench the flames 
B                                A 
I fill the bucket but tumble on down the well 
E                               B 
Love is soaked and curiously strange  (chorus)   

Verse 4  

E                     B 
When the signs are pleasing      
    C#m            B                A 
The coincidence of consequence can seem like reason 
E                      B 
But when direction unravels       
      C#m              B           A                        B   A   E   B 
Can I turn around and justify the distance I've traveled away   


B                       A                       E 
Searching for a reason, Searching for a reason, Searching for a reason       
In this shadow of my doubt (2X) (chorus (2X))  

A                         E        B A        
I'm taking matters in my own hands (2X) 
2nd time through strum the A once and stop music and end with this line.
