No chord              C 
If loving God was a crime, I'd be an outlaw 
G                     C 
I would join the fight 
G                        C 
They could not shut me down 
                    G                    C    (riff2a)
I would stand tall, for what I know is right 

*Chorus* 
C            D           G          Em 
Would you stand with me  for the world to see 
C                   G   (riff2b) 
When all is on the line 
C          D         G     Em 
Would you be ashamed  of Jesus name 
C          D          G      C      G 
If loving God was a crime 


                   C                    G 
The schoolroom, I hear, teaches choices 
                    C 
To kids who cannot pray 
G                  C                      G 
And the unborn I fear, they have no voice 
              C    (riff2a)
in politics today 

*Repeat Chorus* 

*Bridge* 
Bm          C                 G 
           Take a look around.  What will tomorrow hold? 
Am          C                 G 
      It's time to stand our ground. 
Am                   C 
We must be bold.  We must be bold. 

*Organ Solo* 
G     C     Am    D 

G                     C 
If loving God was a crime, I'd be an outlaw. 
G                   C  (riff2a)
I would join the fight. 


C          D           G         Em 
Will you stand with me  for the world to see 
C                   G   (riff2b) 
When all is on the line 
C        D          G    Em 
Will you be ashamed  of Jesus name 
C            D         G      
When loving God is a crime 

                     C                     G
When loving God is a crime                          (3x)
                     (when loving God is a crime)
                     C                           G           
When loving God is a crime    I'll be an outlaw
                     C                     G
When loving God is a crime                          (repeat and fade)
