CAPO 2!!!!

D                         A
You give me joy thats unspeakable
       G              Em
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me's irrestible
          G                 Em
I can't fight it, I can't fight it

                        G              A
If life is water I was dry and Tucson dirt
                        G             A
If its a gamble I'd already lost my shirt
                         G              A      
If its a journey I was dazed without a clue
                              G                A
I flipped a "U" back to the first love I ever knew


D                         A
You give me joy thats unspeakable
       G              Em
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me's irrestible
          G                 Em
I can't fight it, I can't fight it
D                          A
You carried the cross and took my shame
      G             Em 
I believe it, I believe it
D                         A
You shine your light of amazing grace
     G            Em
I receive it, I receive it


                          G            A
If life's a battle the invasion is complete
                          G               A            
If its a rhythm I have found the perfect beat
                          G              A  
If its a Rennesance I've got a new birthday
                 G                                   A
The world don't give it and the world can't take it away


D                         A
You give me joy thats unspeakable
       G              Em
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me's irrestible
          G                 Em
I can't fight it, I can't fight it
D                          A
You carried the cross and took my shame
      G             Em 
I believe it, I believe it
D                         A
You shine your light of amazing grace
     G            Em
I receive it, I receive it

Em                       A
I'm bowed and broken, everything's new
Em                          A  
All that I need, your like water to seed
                            G
And how your love rights everything wrong
         A                G
In my weakness you ever stronger
                          A
Pulling me back where I belong



D                         A
You give me joy thats unspeakable
       G              Em
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me's irrestible
          G                 Em
I can't fight it, I can't fight it
D                          A
You carried the cross and took my shame
      G             Em 
I believe it, I believe it
D                         A
You shine your light of amazing grace
     G            Em
I receive it, I receive it

Its almost right but I think the chorus is D | A | E | Em

And then I think the riff goes |----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|-2-----------0---0---0----2-----------0-|
|---2-3-2-3-2---2---2---2----2-3-2-3-2---|

And in the verse, I believe it goes B | G | A |
