Intro is power chords:C5
                      Bb5
                      G#5
Cool lead line is(to my best estimates):
E----------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------10---------------------------------------------
D--13-10-13-10-13----13---13-10-13-10-13-10----------------------
A-------------------------------------------13-------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This sounds best palm-muted lightly and that is why it is played on
the thicker strings when i play it.

Chorus uses intro chords, the end of it goes:

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------(vibrato while bent)--------
G-----------------------------------------------------10bu--------------------
D-6-6-5/6--------13-10-13-10-13-10------13-10-13-10-13-----13-----------------
A-6-6-5/6-x3-----------------------13-----------------------------------------
E-4-4-3/4---------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 2: play lead line.
Chorus 2: same.
Interlude: F5 G#5 lead line.
Chorus 3: First time through play chords once then scratch strings. Then
back to normal.

End freestyling with the chords sliding and the like.

This is just a basic version of the song, not completely in depth
(or necessarily right) so feel free to make changes/additions, this is
an awesome song.

Here is a different way.

No offense B- rad, but your tabs are the exact same notes as the one before yours, just different frets, so you don't know what your talkin about, plus i prefer the one before your anyways. bye, oh and the last few are still the same notes but diff frets, come on guys, your being ignorant

Artist: Jeremy Camp

Album: Restored
Song: Take You Back
G D Em
The reason why I stand
C* G
The answer lies in you
D Em
You hung to make me strong
C* G
Though my praise was few
D Em
When I fall and bring your name down
C* G
But I have found in you
D Em
A heart that pleads forgiveness
C* Am
Replacing all these thoughts of
Bm C
painful memories
Em
But I know
Bm C
That your response will always be

(Chorus)
G D
I'll take you back always
Am
And even when your fight is over now
C
Even when your fight is over now
G D
I'll take you back always
Am
And even when the pain is coming through
C
Even when the pain is coming through
G D Em C G D Em C
I'll take you back


G D Em
You satisfy this cry
C G
Of what I'm looking for
D Em
And I take all I can
C G
And lay it down Before
D Em
the throne of endless grace, now
C G
That radiates what's true
D Em
I'm in the only place
C Am
That erases all these faults
Bm C
That have overtaken me
Em
But I know
Bm C
That your response will always be


(Chorus)
G D
I'll take you back always
Am
And even when your fight is over now
C
Even when your fight is over now
G D
I'll take you back always
Am
And even when the pain is coming through
C
Even when the pain is coming through
C
I'll take you back

(Bridge)
Am
I can only speak
Bm
With a grateful heart
Em D
As I'm pierced by this gift
C
Of your love
Am Bm
I will always bring an offering
C
I can never thank you enough

G D
You'll take me back always
Am
And even when my fight is over now
C
Even when my fight is over now
G D
You'll take me back always
Am
And even when my pain is coming through
C
Even when my pain is coming through
G D
You'll take me back always
Am
Even when my fight is over now
C
Even when my fight is over now
G D
You'll take me back always
Am
Even when my pain is coming through
C
Even when my pain is coming through
G
You'll take me back

"No offense, B-rad, but I'm going to offend you." Lay off, man. He's discovered something he wanted to share and he has that right. I even think it's nice of him to let us know something that may help us.

As far as ignorance goes, look into your usage of the English language. "your" is possessive; "you're" is the contraction you wanted for "you are." It's not too difficult, is it?

"(3) And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? (4) Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from your eye'; and look, a plank is in your own eye? (5) Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." --Matthew 7:3-5.

B-Rad, do not let anyone discourage you from your worship of Christ through music. God gave you a talent and there's very little we can do that's more spiritually fulfilling than to give it back to Him.

Love,
Ajikura.

hey guess i hate to say it but if i were to get on here i wouldnt expect to see fellow Christians using scripture to make fun of each other. guys yall think about your impact or tupos that youll leave on the others that arent christians that may visit this site.


Katybug - 2006-09-09

I have never been on a website where the artists are teasing each other at all! Wow, I almost don't know whether to think that Christian sites aren't safer or not!
I hope you all are well and visit this page again to see this message.
I tried most of these and they all sound okay to me, harder for me to sing in different keys! LOL
well, BLessings to you all
and may Christ offer you peace and understanding
(as well as myself, haha)

Hey B-rad,
I was just wondering why you have your guitar strings listed as e,b,d,g. I wasn't sure if that was just a typo or if you're using some alternate tuning that I don't know about. Just curious. well I'm gonna check out your version and see how it sounds next to the cd. BTW, everyone is putting forth great effort.
Adios, 51_rocker17
