This is a really nice, cool song to sing.  There is two versions I play:
The Illuminate CD version and Passion: Sacred Revolution.  The Illuminate
version is Capo 4 and the Passion version is Capo 5.  The Passion version 
can also be found at DCB website.

Verses:
G C

D C

Chorus:

Solo: 
D C D C

Bridge: 
D C (repeat however many times you want/need to)

Outro:
D C
D C <-(hold this C through next line)
G C
G C

I usually play G5 and C5 (i think) and with the D, if you can throw in a 
D5 it works good

G  - 320003
G5 - 320033
C  - X32013 (sounds better)
C5 - X32033
D  - X00232
D5 - X00233

Enjoy! Please give corrections if i messed up somewhere, thanks.

The intro piece is as follows...funny how you figure things out when you don't mean to...

|-3------3--------------------------3-
|--3-----3-3------------------------3-
|---0----0--0-----------------------0-
|----0---0---0---------0h2-22-2p0---0-
|-----2--2-----0h2-2h3------------2-2-
|------3-3------------------------3-3-

I wrote it as I did to imply the strum technique David loves so much (see All Creatures for reference).

The verse 'C' is a Cadd9 [x32033], not a C [x32013]

I'll have to listen to the song again to further gauge this but the Chorus needs a little work.

If you try and play with the CD "Illuminate" you are going to have to tune every string down 1/2 a step. :)

Also, the chords on the Davidcrowderband.com website show a Csus instead of a G in the verses.

Actually guys, the song is no capo Eb tuning on Illuminate...the verse and intro goes something (or exactly which I like to think) like this:

eb|----0-00-00-0-000-0|
Bb|----1-11-11-1-111-1|
Gb|----0-00-00h2-222p0| x however many, just listen to the song
Db|----2-22h33-3-333-3|
Ab|--3-3-33-33-3-333-3|
Eb|--x-x-xx-xx-x-xxx-x|

That's just the C-Csus thing that the Crowder chords are talking about. Then for the G and F's I like to use barre chords because open just sounds kinda nasty.

But, seriously, Eb no capo and that's the C-Csus thing. Just try it.


davdcrowderfan - 2007-04-05

well technically those chords you put up are C F2 not C Csus
