The Cross I Wear Around My Neck
Written and Performed By: 100 Portraits
Tabbed By: Rick (manilovejesus@aol.com)


The tuning for this song is what gives it the deep,
thick guitar sound.  DADGAD (low E to high E) is my
educated guess. I found the match to be perfect.
Here's how to get there if you're not sure how:
First, strike the D string and tune the low E down
to match it.
Then tune your high E the same way.
Then strike your A string and tune the B string down
to match it.
That's it.

The intro chord is strummed for the entire first
measure, and is never used again.

verse
G 
The cross I wear around my neck who is it for

E min 
If it is not for us?

C2
The lame and the blind, the ones held captive and

D2
The fatherless?

(verse chords repeat up to chorus)

chorus
G min                         E 11
The cross I wear around my neck

C2
Is being raised above my head

D2
I think this time It's wearing someone else

G min                      E 11
I see it drop into the ground

C2
And when it falls I hear the sound

D2                             G min  E 11   C2    D2
Of someone crying I Love You


The progression repeats itself for the song duration.
Don't forget about the added half-measure just before
each new verse. 
This song is very powerful. Use it to glorify Jesus. 
In His Love, Rick
