Copyright 1988 BMG Songs, Inc.

intro-{Bb(no 3rd),Bb,Bb(no3rd)}

Verse 1:
Bb                            F/A              Bb
And there’s more than rises in the morning than the 
F/A           Gm           Gm/D    D   D7
sun, and more than shines in the night than just the 
Eb     Bb/D      Cm                     Fsus  
moon;    there’s more than just this fire here that 
    Bb F/A   Gm      Csus            C/E  
keeps me warm in a shelter that is larger than this 
   Fsus F              Bb              F/A
room.    And there’s a loyalty that’s deeper than 
     Bb               F/A      Gm               Gm/D
mere sentiment, and a music higher than the songs 
     D    Eb   Bb/D Cm                Fsus
that I can sing.    The stuff of earth completes 
F          Bb F/A Gm        C7sus       C7/E
for the allegiance_ I owe only to the giver of all 
Fsus                 F
good things

chorus:
Gm7  F/A Bb Bbsus/C Bb Eb          Gm       C7sus
So, if I stand let me stand on the promise that you
        C7  Fsus F Fsus F         Cm       Bb/D Eb
will pull me through;    and if I can’t let me fall
           Gm            Bb/F   F  Bb     Eb F Gm Fsus
on the grace that first brought me to you.
F    Bb  Cm7 Bb/D Eb             Gm 
And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born
C7sus C7  Fsus F Fsus F       Cm       Bb/D Eb 
in me these songs,    and if I weep let it be as a 
   Gm        Bb/F   F   Bb       Eb    F   Gm
man who is a-longing for his home.

Verse 2:
F           Bb                F/A  
And there’s more than dances on the praries than 
Bb              F/A        Gm          Gm/D  D
the wind, and more than pulses in the ocean than 
   Eb  Bb/D  Cm                     Fsus    F   
the tide.    There’s a love that is fiercer than
        Bb   F/A      Gm       Csus 
the love between friends; more gentle than a 
C7/E          Fsus            F
mother’s when her baby’s at her side. And 
Bb             F/A  
there’s a loyalty that’s deeper than mere 
Bb               F/A      Gm              Gm/D    D
sentiment, and a music higher than the songs that I
  Eb     Bb/D Cm               Fsus       F
can sing.    The stuff of earth completes for the 
  Bb F/A Gm        C7sus       C7/E          
allegiance_ I owe only to the giver of all good 
Fsus     F
things.

(repeat chorus)
 
Fsus F   Bb           Eb/Bb         Gm         C7sus
And if I stand let me stand on the promise that you
        C7   F   Gm7 F            Cm
will pull me through;    and if I can’t 

(pick up here at chorus and go to the end when done with the chorus)

end:
Gm Eb   Bb/D Cm      Bb/D Eb       Gm       Fsus
And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing
F Bbsus Bb
for his home.

ending-(Bbsus,Bb,Eb/Bb,F/Bb,Bb,Eb/Bb,F/Bb,Bb,F,F7,Bb)
