PEDESTAL    BY SHERRI YOUNGWARD

 transcribed by Jason Henry    email: orion7@ptinet.com

This song really spoke to my heart;  we need to be careful to not let
others take God's place in our lives, and if we really love them like
we think we do, we need to be willing to let them go in Christ, to love
and know them as God would have us to, for only He knows our hearts and
our true needs. God bless you all!



 Chords: Am C2 C9 D Em G

C2 is: 5th string 3rd fret, 4th string 2nd fret, 2nd string 3rd fret, and
1st string 3rd fret, C9 is the same except without the 1st string 3rd fret

If anyone knows what the real fingerings for C2 and C9 are please e mail
them to me, thanks!


 (Instrumental intro: Em->C9 x3 then G maj->D)

    Em           C9           G           D
 I held you so high on a pedestal
               Em                  C9           G    D
 when you fell you had a long way to go
                Em C9                 G
 when you fell how was I to know
        D         Am
 that I'd fall with you?
   Em            C9        lead in: G   D
 I held you too high (x3)
 (chorus)
           G     D     C2
 It's a long way down
        G              D                C2
 but finally I'm landing on solid ground
        G                  D           Am
 and that's what it took for me
 (VERSE 2)
 Em                C9               G            D
 Who was I to think I could own you
        Em           C9             G    D
 I'm ashamed to say that I tried
     Em                        C9       G
 If losing you is what it cost to love you
        D        Am
 well I'll say goodbye
   Em              C9       lead in: G D
 I held you too high (x3)

 (repeat chorus)
                Em          C9    G              D
 add:And it hurts me so to let you go
        Em         C9         G   D
 But I know I'll be alright
        Em   C9          G             D                 Am
 cuz only God can hold this place in our lives
            (Instrumental: play Em C9 G D x3 then Am)
Em                         C9
G                    D
 How was I to know loving you would mean letting you go?
Em                         C9
G                    D
 How was I to know loving you would mean letting you go?
 Em                         C9                            G
D         Am
 How was I to know loving you would mean I'd have to let you go?
                                         Em                C9
(repeat chorus 2x)      add: I held you too high (x3)     end on G chord
