Tabbed by Steve Cruickshank

    E       G       A        E       G       A

How you gonna reckon with a God like this
When you gonna face what you can't dismiss
E                                       B
Whatcha gonna say to the soul kiss that is my God
Fearsome like the sag in a fat man's chair
Sweeter than a patch of Rogaine hair
How do you define what you can't compare
This is my God

            D                      D/F#        G
And there's no use explaining what can't be contained

Chorus 1:
C                   G
I'm not following a God I can lead around
C                    G
I can't tame this Deity
C                       G
That's why Jesus is the final answer
   Em         C         D
To who I want my God to be
     Em         C         D
He's who I want my God to be

Verse 1:
How you gonna reckon with a God this Great
Why you gonna measure what you can't equate
Whatcha gonna say to the checkmate that is my God
Stronger than the burn of an aftershave
Tender as a burger in your microwave
Rarer than the air in an empty grave
This is my God

And there's no use explaining what can't be contained

[chorus 1]

[intro x1 only]

F              G         C/E
  How we gonna work this out
               F        G        C/E
To fabricate a God like this, no doubt
                          F             G     C/E
We'd end up worshipping a Christ of our own design
                  F        G
But Jesus doesn't fit that profile
F        G
His ways aren't mine

Chorus 2:
I'm not following a God that's imagined
Can't invent this Deity
That's why Jesus is the final answer
To who I want my God to be
He's who I want my God to be

[Chorus 1 till the end]

the intro can be simply played as open E, G, A (G and A barred) just to make it easier.

I've watched the Thrive Live DVD, and on that Jody just does a regular E, G, A. And on the verses he goes up and plays something on like, the twelfth fret on like, the G, B, and E strings. Then on the prechorus he comes down to like the 8th and does something. Hope that helps. I can't really tell what he plays, and I'm not really good at figuring it out by myself. Nice job though!

Ah, dude, it's "tender as a booger in your microwave",
kinda gross, but that's the truth.

^ haha...actually it started out as burger- but as Pete says "Try to get an Aussie to say burger and it comes out horrible!" they kept it as booger as a joke kind of thing.
