Proclaimers: The Light

Capo 3

INTRO: D   D   D   D

Verse 1:
 D                G
You make it sound easy,
 D                A7                  D
You say you just hold your hand out, don't you,
         G                   D         A7
You just hold your hand out, don't you.

Verse 2:
That hope never leaves you,
'Cos a light shines on that helps you to steer,
Makes everything clear.

Chorus 1:
         G                       D
(Well it might) Well it might in your world,
         G                         D
(But it doesn't) But it doesn't in mine,
            G                                    D
(I've been stumbling) I've been stumbling in the dark for years,
         Em                 A
And the light just made me blind.

Verse 3:
You say it lights every pathway,
Shows me how to live life for the rest of my days,
For the rest of my days.

Chorus 2:
(But I can't) But I can't put my faith in,
(Your words) Your words and demands,
(I believe) I believe in God alright,
It's folk like you that I just can't stand.

Bridge:
 G
You don't have to try and scare me,

 A
To reinforce my faith, sir,

 G
'Cos I know that one day,

 Em          A           D
I'll stand before my maker.


(Instrumental - D G D A7 D G D D7)
Chorus 3:
(And if I'm found) And if I'm found wanting,
(When my case) When my case is heard,
(It'll be) It'll be by the author,
Not some interpreter of his words.

Repeat Verse 1, 2 and Chorus 1
