Playing Marbles With Diamonds
Steve Camp

    A2	G26    D2  A2         G26    D2  A2

[ / / ][ / / / / ]
A2	      D2/A	       A2
Waking up to a very different world
	   E	     F#m     D2			    A2   Em7 D2
We've got mud on our flag before it's even been unfurled
     A2			      D2/A	        A2
Our heroes have fallen and a leader is hard to find
     E		     F#m	 D2			   A2    E
The clock is running out, we're casting our pearls before swine

Chorus 1:
	  F#m7	    Em/G        A2
There's a whole lot more than preaching to the choir
F#m7		 E	  D2	     A2
Kneeling at the altar or paying our tithe
F#m7	            Em/G	  A2
We've been treating God like He's happiness for hire
E		  F#m	  D2	       VAMP
We've been playing marbles with diamonds

[ / / ][ / / / / ]

Isn't it a shame how His Name gets thrown around
We pat God on the back like a buddy from out of town
We thank the Man upstairs for the things people praise us for
We give God the glory but we're happy to take the award

Chorus 2:
There's a whole lot more than raising lots of money
Building our churches and spreading our fame
Faith is just a dice that you roll to get lucky
We've been playing marbles with diamonds

	  C2		     Am27	      C2/G		  F2
There are precious things of God and we must guard them with our lives
	Dm27	        C2	       F2	      G
Like an unborn baby's dreams, like a husband loves a wife
	 C2	       Am27	     C2/G	  F2
May the hope of His returning, may it purify our faith
       Dm27	    C2			F2	G     VAMP
As we hold onto His holy Word may the chaff be blown away
  A2    D2/A
[ / / ][ / / / / ]

Can we ever live up to the things that we say we believe
Cause the world is watching, looking for some honesty
Have we been riding down a freeway instead of on a narrow road
We've turned a passion for the lost into a business of saving souls

    E		     F#m    D2	        A/G D/F# A
...We've been playing marbles with diamonds

vamp 2:
