This is an awesome song by Hawk Nelson. I found that we
needed more tabs for this band. Feel free to add a comment
or question, or even e-mail me to discuss about the tab.

Have fun jamming to this song,

Strikeout_27 - 2005-07-08

Great Tab on a great song. Great Job.


Uejji - 2005-08-18

I'm pretty sure the first 4 chords during the verse lines are supposed to be 9th chords.

Just a small correction. Not a big deal but the song sounds closer using the 9th chords in my opinion.


jesusfreak_33 - 2006-02-15

You did a really good job!!


akaukal - 2006-03-29

they dont use 9th chords they're just normal. if u know anything about hawk nelson, you'll know they'll make it sound good but still really simple. anyways good job man. 5 out of 5


relient nelson - 2006-04-17

I agree with Uejji. They are definetly 9th chords in the verses.
I looked in the official songbook.

Also, a little correction for the intro. It really goes

Other, than that, awesome tab

relient nelson - 2006-05-30

PuNK RaWKeR - 2006-06-08

I Jam For God - 2007-10-23
