Artist: Newsboys

Tabbed by Jack.

I found many ways to play this song and didnt really like any of them
so I made my own version! Im sure its not perfectly accurate with the
song but I think you'll like it. Its very detailed but not to hard to
play with a little practice. 
if anyone finds anything wrong with it, or wants to make a correction
please email me. 

Everything is here; the tab (its all in tab), the lyrics, and its all in 
order so you shouldnt have any problems playing along with this great
song. Enjoy!!!

PLEASE READ: Every place I've muted (x) is just personal preference 
and you have the option of muting it or not, I just think it sounds
better with certain strings muted. AND if your going to copy it on to
your computer use "notepad". Wordpad messes it up. It does to me anyway :)

Now comes the cool guitar part. You dont half to use that last string on
parts marked (*) cuzz I realize that most people have trouble doing an
"F" Chord. So you either A. Learn the darn F chord!! or B. use the alternate.
It wont sound as good but at least you'll be able to do it!
