Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors

Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe
F                 C             F      C          
Give a little bit more than you got to give
F        C         F        C
Simplify, testify, identify, rectify
       F      C                  F      C
And if I get high stop being so uptight

Piano Only (Guitar 1 can play th F-C chords)

Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend, grandmother, niece or nephew
Just dying to be with you
You know there's someone out there who unconditionally, religiously, loves you
So just hold on 'cause you know it's true
And if you can take the pain
And you can withstand anything, and one day
Stand hand in hand with the truth

I said amen, I said amen
I said amen, I said amen,

Amen

This part, which is before the lead break, is left out:
Am C
And when a calls away to break the sound, I'm faden down, I need someone, oh to be someone
Am
They just sinken down, and holden back I hold the dawn and run
G
They don't save a child Oh, to save a child

Then lead break.

Somehow the C chord got misplaced.
Am C
And when a calls away to break the sound, I'm faden down, I need someone, oh to be someone
Am
They just sinken down, and holden back I hold the dawn and run
G
They don't save a child Oh, to save a child

Then lead break.
