This is the first tab I have uploaded but not the first transcription I have done. I this will give u a pretty accurate idea of how to play "lift me up." This is of coarse a tune and every time I have accompanied someone singing this song I have played piano than a guitar. Point being that a lot of the chords are not open chords on a guitar inversions. For example the intro is C F C, the F is an a 1st inversion so the bass is actually C. Another point that one should understand with this song is that it is very If you are going to sing it I would maybe try it in A or Bb. It would make it a lot easier. Intro: C F C F C Am7 G C F C This road is anything but simple F C Am7 G Twisted like a riddle I've seen high and I've seen low C F C So loud, the voices of all my doubts F C Am7 G Telling me to give up, to pack up and leave town F G Even so, I had to believe F G Impossible means nothing to me, yeah F G C So can you lift me up, F G Turn the ashes into flames F G C ‘Cause I have overcome F G More than words will ever say F G Am And I've been given hope F G That there's a light on up the hall Am(7) And that a day will come F When the fight is won F G C And I think that day has just begun C C/E C/F C/G C (eighth notes) C F Somewhere, everybody starts there F C I'm counting on a small prayer, Am7 G Lost in a nightmare C F C But I'm here, and suddenly it's so clear F C The struggle through the long years Am7 G It taught me to outrun my fears F G Everything worth having, oh F G Comes with trials worth withstanding (CHORUS) C Oh, lift me up C Oh, lift me up C G Oh, lift me up C Lift me up C Lift me up C G Oh, Lift me up F G Down and out is overrated F G And I need to be elevated F G Looking up is not enough F G No, I would rather rise above C F G (CHORUS) VAMP A C OR THE CHROUS FOR AN OUT
