G  G/F#  C2  C2  G  G/F#  C2  C2

G  G/F#  C2  C2  C2  C2   C2  C2

The strum pattern can very easily be picked up from the CD.
Good luck! Let me know if I did something wrong.
And Shawn McDonald obviously rules.

for the verses... he plays the chords like this..

Gsus2: x0003x
G/B: x2003x
Gsus4: x3003x

And the chorus is just plain G and C2

I like to play this with another guitar to add fullness... Guitar 1 plays it in G as shown, and Guitar 2 plays with capo3 in E.

E9: 079900
Badd11: 078900
A2: 009900

E: 012200
A2: 002200

Thanks for the chords. I am fairly new to guitar and am having a hard time picking out the strum pattern. Could someone please post the pattern? Thank you and God Bless

G/B |x|2|o|o|3|3|
Cadd9 |x|3|2|o|3|3|

G |3|2|o|o|3|3|
