Intro riff:
  C (strum once, then hammer on and then quickly pull off on the 2nd
fret on the fourth string)    
  F* (hammer on and pull off a couple times on the 2nd fret on the third string)

[Intro riff (without words) 2x]

   Will you hold my hand?
   Do I have to stand 
   in this world all alone
   where it's icy cold

   and all the people chime in
   "You've got to sink or swim"?

C      F  Bb  F

(Verse 1)
C                F  Bb  F
   Where there's rain there's drought,
C             F  Bb  F
   So I'll confess my doubts.
C                F  Bb  F
   Where there's threshing of the fields
C              F  Bb  F
   something's bound to yield.

(Chorus 1)
   And all the people cry out,
   they feel they're about to drown
E               Am
   on the ocean floor
         D                  F*  E  G
   but I know there's more

C     F  Bb  F (2x)

(Verse 2)
C    F  Bb  F
   I know You understand 
C            F  Bb  F     
   what it's like to me man
C              F  Bb  F
   Sometimes I forget You're near
C              F  Bb  F 
   Sometimes I forget you hear

(Chorus 2)
   The way the raindrops fall,
   the sound of the wind as it calls,
E                     Am
   and every breath I breathe
       D                  F*
   and song I don't sing.

(Intro riff  4x)
