Verse 1:
  G2        Em7         C2        Dsus    D
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][  /  /  /  / ]
G                      Em7
  The Jordan is waiting    for me to cross through
C2(no3)                  Am7(4)       Dsus   D
        My heart is agin'       I can tell
G                                Em7
  So Lord I'm asking for one last    favor from You
          C2(no3)     Am7(4)               Dsus
Here's my  heart  take  it  where You will

G                                  Em7
  This life has shown me how we're mend-ed and how we're torn
C2(no3)                          Am7(4)                 Dsus    D
        How it's okay to be lone-  ly  as long as you're   free
G
Sometimes my ground was stony
             Em7
And sometimes covered up with thorns
         C2(no3)               Am7(4)
And only   You   could make it  what  it had to be
Dsus
     And now that it's done
Am7(4)                          Gmaj7/B
       If they dressed me like a  pau-  per
             C             Gmaj7/B
Or if they dined me like a prince
Am7(4)                   Gmaj7/B
  If they lay me with my   fa-   thers
         C2(no3)                  D7sus
Or if my  ash-  es scatter on the wind I don't care

 G                         Am7        G/B   C     D
But when I leave I want to go out like  E-li-jah
Em7                           D/F#    G     C2  D/C
With a whirlwind to fuel my char-i-ot of fire
           G/B                    C
And when I look back on the stars
                G/D              B/D#           Em  Asus  A
It'll be like a can- dlelight in Cen- tral Park
    C                    Dsus              G
And it won't break my heart to say goodbye
 Em7         C2         D

Verse 2:
There's people been friendly, but they'd never be your friends
Sometimes this has bent me to the ground
Now that this is all ending
I want to hear some music once again
'Cause it's the finest thing that I have ever found

But the Jordan is waiting
Though I ain't never seen the other side
Still they say you can't take in the things you have here
So on the road to salvation
I stick out my thumb and He gives me a ride
And His music is already falling on my ears

There's people been talking
They say they're worried about my soul
Well, I'm here to tell you I'll keep rocking
'Til I'm sure it's my time to roll
And when I do

Repeat Chorus:
But when I leave I want to go out like Elijah
With a whirlwind to fuel my chariot of fire
And when I look back on the stars
It'll be like a candlelight in Central Park
And it won't break my heart to say goodbye

Repeat Chorus:
'Cause when I leave I want to go out like Elijah
With a whirlwind to fuel my chariot of fire
And when I look back on the stars
It'll be like a candlelight in Central Park
    C                      D7sus
And it won't break my heart 
       G2
To say    goodbye
 Em9         C         Dsus    D
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][  /  /  /  /  ]
  G2        Em9         C         Dsus    D
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][  /  /  /  / ]
Repeat and fade:
  G2        Em7         C2        Dsus    D
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][  /  /  /  / ]
