Chords by Geoffrey Buyco

Capo on 3rd Fret

Tuning: EABABE

  1     2     3     4     5

INTRO: 1  2  3  4  (x2)
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jars_of_clay/flood_acoustic_crd.html ]
VERSE: 1  3  4 palm muted
Rain rain on my face
It hasn't stopped
Raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become
One with the mud

CHORUS: 1  2  3  4  (x4)  then end with 5
But if I can't swim after 40 days
And my mind is crushed
By the crashing waves
Lift me up so high
That I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up-when I'm falling
Lift me up-I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up-I need you to hold me
Lift me up-and keep me from drowning again

Down pour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean    
I'm losing control
Dark sky all around
Can't feel my feet
Touching the ground


BRIDGE:  1  2  3  4 (finger-picking)
Calm the storms that drench my eyes
And dry the streams still flowing
Casting down all waves of sin
And guilt that overthrow me

CHORUS(x2) end with 5
