Clumsy
Words&Music by: Chris Rice
Capo 3rd fret
Transcribed by Ryan Ripperger


Intro:  
E  A2  D2  C2 G  E


              E             A2
You thing I'd have it down by now
         D2      C2  G         E   
Been practicin' for thirty years
           E      A2
I should have walked a thousand miles
     D2        C2  G   E
So what am I still doin' here
             A2                   
Reachin' out for that same old piece of forbidden fruit
           E
I slip and fall and I knock my halo loose
        A2                                                        B2
Somebody tell me what's a boy supposed to do?


Chorus
                  E
Cause I get so clumsy
             B2
I get so foolish
    C#2
I get so stupid
                    A2
And then I feel so useless
                        E
But you're sayin' You love me
                         B2
And you're still gonna hold me
                        C#2
And that You wanna be near me
                        A
'Cause You're makin' me holy
                      D2  C2  G E
You're still makin' me holy,    yeah



I'm ganna get it right this time
I'll be strong and I'll make You proud
I've prayed that prayer a thousand times
But the rooster crows and my tears roll down (again)
Then You remind me You made me from the dust
And I can never, no never, be good enough
And that You're not gonna let that come between us


Chorus
C2
From where I stand
      D2              E
Your holiness is up so high I can never reach it
C2           D2
My only hope is to fall on Jesus

This is awesome I love this song, I'm so glad someone had transposed it. Many thanks. One thing though I think the C#2 would be better as a C#m7. it has better tone to it. once again thanks!

Yes...yes...yes! Replace all listed C#2 with a C#m7. Makes more sense when transitioning to an A.


ctolbert - 2005-07-15

Excuse me for asking, but what is C2?


GomerPy739 - 2005-08-08

I was actually wondering what a B2 was?


card_shark - 2006-02-16

C2 is x32030
B2, in this case, would be x24400
D2 is xx0230
C#m would be x46600
