This song is really cool.. If you haven't ever heard this song you are
going to be completely lost.. It can get kind of confusing if you don't
understand what I'm talking about.. Make sure that you understand all
the chords before you start playing... If you don't play them right
you'll get messed up..

EADGBe - Name
7544xx   Bm(1)
x577xx   D
22xxxx   G(1)
242400   F#7sus
320400   G(2)
750700   Bm(2)
5x0700   Asus
320430   G(3)

Extra chord information:
Whenever you play the Bm(1) slide up to the seven on the low E then pick
the other 4 notes, dont strum them
Whenever you play the D slide up to it.. (i know it goes fast but thats
how David does it)
Whenver you play the G(1) play the chord written above but immediately
hammer down on the 3 of the low E and kind of p.m. then let off over and
over until the next chord..
Whenever you play the F#7sus p.m. and let off over and over.. and dont
strum up.. only down.. the same goes for the G(2)
When you play the last F#7sus and G(2) of the pre-chorus start letting
off on the p.m. so that it gets louder then after play the G(2) twice
slide up so it forms 5406xx play that chord twice and then slide to the
Bm(2)..
VERSE, PRE-CHORUS, AND CHORUS ALL REPEAT THE CHORD PROGRESSION AS SHOWN
ON LINE ONE OF THAT PART..

Intro:

Bm(1)-D-G(1) 2x

Verse:

Bm(1) D   G(1)Bm(1)D    G(1)
      I will wait, I will wait for Your peace
      I will wait, I will wait and You comfort me (play verse 2x)

Pre-Chorus:

F#7sus      G(2) F#7sus    G(2)
   I lift my head, I lift my heart my soul
   I lift my hands, I give myself, my life my all

Chorus:

Bm(2)   Asus G(3)
   And I cry mercy Lord
Bm(2) Asus  G(3)
   A cry of freedom to be heard
   And I cry mercy Lord
   A cry of freedom from this world

Outro:

(play like chorus)
Yey-ha, yey-ha, yey-ha, yey-ha  (repeat twice then repeat pre-chorus and
chorus, then play outro as desired until end of song)

I've actually seen Crowder play this...and he plays it like this:

Beginning Riff:
e||----------------(7)-----------------||
B||----------------(7)-----------------||
G||----7-7------7*-(7)-----------------||
D||----0-0------7--(7)------0-0-----0--||
A||--5-5-5--4/5-5-----------2-2-----2--||
E||-7-------------------2h3-3-3-2h3-3--||

* = Up strum, and emphasize the asterixed note
(x) = Harmonic fret x

He only does the harmonic live (I think).

The rest you can get off of Crowder's site.
