***COMMON CREED*** By Wes King

A couple of things before we start here. One, This is not a note for note
transcription of the tune. This is the way I heard it and adapted it. I did
not tab every strum,because most people can get that from the recording.
This is my version, but I think it's a good one, and pretty close in some
areas. If you play this along with the tape it will sound "right". At times
the mix was such that I couldn't quite hear the guitar, so necessity
dictated that I "fill in the blanks". CAPO AT THE 4TH FRET.  Don't try to
play this as written without a capo. :) Enjoy...I also did not try to name
every last chord, as I am too lazy to, if you really want to know 'em, e
mail me, and I'll  write you with them.

The 4 is the capo. Have fun.

This is the way I figured out the main riff  Riff A, at the beginning.  The
first chord shape is a D, but being as this is capoed, we are now playing a
F# major chord. Use your pinky at the hammeron.

--6-h-9--7----4--4-4--h-6-----  Repeat. Listen to the recording to hear
--7------7----7--7-7----7-----  how he strums it. This is just the
--6------6----6--6-6----6-----  chords he's using as he plays

Optional: The second guitar plays this at the same time at the end of the


As he sings "It's a call to love.." I played it like this. The third chord
is F#major with an added G# or a F#add2 chord. I don't know if he used this
but playing with the recording, it worked, and playing it solo worked for
me too.

--7------------7-----7----7----   Rhy Fig A

Now I can almost promise you I hear a second guitar low in the mix at the
same time, that or keyboard. Whatever the case, I hear it going from a
F#major to F#major7. You can pick and choose what you like best, or
alternate 'em, it works regardless. If you can hear what I'm talking about
on the recording, listen for how its played. These are the chords:

F#maj          F#maj7


Rhy A  Verse 1

It's a call to love, love and mercy, it's a call to give, and ask for 

               Bmaj7                                          Riff A
nothing in return         It's a call to give your love away

Riff A overdub
Verse 2

It's a call to hope, for the hope of glory, its a call to live, grow in
grace and try and learn....what it means to give your life away


D#m7               C#                 B                      C# or C#7
A house divided,  will never stand,  lets join together, we're stronger

hand in hand.


C#       B                                                                 
                                C#     B
Common struggle, common to the everyday man. Common table, the body and 

                                    C#     B                               
                                G#m  C#
the blood.  Common Savior, for God so loved the world...What we need, is 

a common creed  Riff A 

Bmaj7 is an open Gmajor 7th shape except played with a capo at 4th fret. C#
is like a open A shape. B is open G shape. G#m is open Em shape. C#7 is
open A7 shape.
D#m7 is played like this:


Verse 3 lyrics.

It's a call to arms, it's a fight of faith, sound the alarm, no time to
lose no time to wait, in this war for the soul of man

same prechorus as before.


Bridge: Not positive about these chords, tried to follow melody.
feel free to help me correct em if I'm wrong...couldn't hear em in the mix.

D#m                    C#      B??                  G#m? B
I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ His only Son, I believe

               C#              D#m       C#7
 there's only one way to the Father by grace thru faith alone

If anyone is lost here please e mail me and I'll see if I can help you with
it. It's different tabbing when a capo is used.
