Now And Forever Tab

   

This version was originally posted by Mike Gray(slx6b@cc.usu.edu). But I've edited it and
added in the solo. =) Yup, the long wait is over, I figured out the whole solo part. Lots 
of thanks to Mike! Without his original post, I would not know how to play the song at all. =)
Thanks alot, Mike! And lastly but not least, I thank God for teaching me what I wanted to play 
for months.. the solo. Praise God!

I tabbed out the solo part together with Mike's original post for easier reference. Enjoy. =)

Chorus I:
Whenever I'm weary
from the battles in my head,
You make sense of madness
when my sanity hangs by a thread,

Chorus II:
I lose my way but still you seem to understand,

Fill III:
Now and forever, I will be your man.

Chorus I (2nd time):
Sometimes I just hold you
Too caught up in me to see,
I'm holding a fortune
that heaven has given to me,

Chorus II:
I'll try to show you each and every way I can,

Fill IV:
Now and forever, I will be your man. 

Chorus III:
Now I can rest my worries
and always be sure
that I won't be alone anymore,
if I'd only known you were there 
all the time
all this time.
