When God Made Me Chords

   
Here's the chords to the song When God Made Me off of his new album, Prarie Wind. This
is up there with Mother Earth and After the Gold Rush as one of Neil's best piano
ballads. Enjoy it!


Intro: G D Em D G D G

       G        D        Em
Was he thinking about my country,
       G      D     Em
or the colour of my skin?
       G         D       Em
Was he thinking about my religion,
        G     D          Em
and the way I worshipped him?
           G       D          Em
Did he create just me in his image,
   G     D      Em       D
or every living thing?

Chorus:
     G   D    Em
When God made me.
     G   D    Em
When God made me.

Was he planning only for believers,
or for those who just had faith?
Did he envision all wars
that were fought in his name?
Did he say there was only one way
to be close to him?

When God made me.
When God made me.

I do a harmonica solo here over 4 lines of the chord progression

G D Em x4

Did he give me the gift of love
to say who I could choose?

When God made me.
When God made me.
When God made me.

Did he give me the gift of voice
so some could silence me?
Did he give me the gift of vision
not knowing what I might see?
Did he give me the gift of compassion
to help my fellow man?

When God made me.
When God made me.
When God made me.
