By: Keith Green                                                     
CD: So you Wanna Go Back to Egypt

This is my first tab/chording of a song. I was sitting down trying to play
along with the CD, but the chords that were alread on CG are a little off from
what is on the CD. I played around with the capo and got it pretty close. Now,
it's not perfect, so feel free to let me know of any discoveries you have. 


: : : Capo on second fret : : : 

Chords Used:
Am - 002210
B  - 224422
B* - 02x022 (not sure of this chord)
C  - 032022
D  - x00232
Em - 022000
G  - 320022

Verse 1:

G           C   B*   D
Oh Lord You're Beautiful,

     G       C   B* D
Your face is all I seek.

    Em         B       Em D    G
And when Your Eyes are on this child,

     C     Em D        C   D
Your Grace abounds to me.

Chorus: (Here, the Em could be a G... play around with it)

	C	Em   Am   G    D    
I want to take your word and shine it all around.

		      C	    Em       D
But first help me to just, live it Lord.

	      C	Em  Am        G      D    
And when I'm doing well, help me to never seek a crown.

           C	    Em       D        G
For my reward is giving glory to you.

Verse 2:

Oh Lord, please light the fire,

That once burned bright and clear.

Replace the lamp of my first love,

That burns with Holy fear.



Verse 1 again

(note: they may remove the following version/correction due to incredible accuracy. i guess they only put half-fast tab on this site)

if you're playing this on the guitar, don't bother with playing
the inverses ("X/Ym"), unless you're a maniac on the guitar.

INTRO: (mean piano intro)
D A/C# A E

A D A/C# E (E/B D/E E)
1) Oh Lord Your beautiful,
A D A/C# E (Esus4 E)
Your face is all I seek.
F#m7 Db/F F#m7 E/G# A
For when Your eyes are on this child,
D A/C# E D (A Asus4/E)
Your grace abounds to me.

repeat VERSE 1 again

A - Bm - A/C# - D A/C# Bm Bm/A E/G# A
I wann na take Your word and shine it all around
A - Bm - A/C# - D B/D# E (Esus4 E)

First off, great tab. This is great for new guitarists like me who don't have the time (or in my case, ability) to work all this out.

Secondly, if you're going to be cocky or criticize you should use the correct terminology. It's not "half-fast" although it sounds like that. Ask someone "less Christian" than you. They'll set you straight on the lingo :)

FluffySK - 2006-07-11

Your terminology is wrong too if you want to judge others like that. No one is "less Christian", either their a Non-Christian who havn't accepted Jesus and is not born again, or IS a Christian who accepted Jesus and is born again. Probably what you refered to as "less Christian" is someone who sins more than others. We all sin and is same is God's eyes.

CajunPunk did a great job and so is mocoloco82 for giving his idea :D I don't think he wrote that to critise but as a joke. Anywho, thanks guys, I've been looking for this for ages

-God bless, Fluffy
