Intro

G  D  Em  G  D  Em  Am  C

Verse 1

G                      D                Em
I'm looking through a box my dad just sent me
             G                   D            Em
Filled with hand me downs and things he once wore
G           D          Em               C
He passed along his blessings and his curses
G            D              Em        C            D
But mainly scraps and nothing more ... no nothing more
       G               D                Em
And I pray to God his shoes will never fit me
       G               D        Em
And I pray this isn't my inheritance
G           D            Em                   C
His dirty t-shirts and all his girlfriend's mini skirts
G         D             Em      C        D
Are the things I now resent ... Lord I resent

Chorus

Em                         F/D   G                Am
Old man didn't gimme much more than second hand clothing
Em                       F/D  G               Am                       C
But Jesus wants more for me than second hand clothing, second hand clothing

Verse 2

G                         D               Em
I've spent my lifetime dancing with his demons
           G           D               Em
They're constantly comparing him with me
G                 D              Em          C
They tell their lies as they look into my eyes and say
G                  D                  Em                 C           D
The apple doesn't fall far from it's tree ... and I pray oh Lord not me

(Chorus)

Verse 3

      G             D                Em
So I put away this box that I was given
         G            D                 Em
Cause nothing in it meant that much to me
G            D           Em              C
I have outgrown these hand me downs and now I know
G                    D          Em   C                 D
That God gives me everything I need ... everything I need now

(Chorus)
