                            DOUBTING THOMAS - Nickel Creek
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jake Denmark
Tuning: Standard, Capo I

A really nice song off "Why Should The Fire Die?" I believe that it is really
played with no capo, but a capo on the 1st fret makes it a lot easier, and it
makes a difference only during the bridge when the bass notes are a bit high.
Scroll down for chords only. Enjoy!

C            F               C            F 
what will be left when i've drawn my last breath,
  Am                   F                     G       G
besides the folks i've met and the folks who know me,
C         F        C           F 
will i discover a soul saving love, (or)
  Am              F          G       G
or just the dirt above and below me,


       F       C 
i'm a doubting thomas,
F            C 
   i took a promise,
F           G        C     Cadd9
   but i do not feel safe,
Am          G       F C, F C, F G C (like intro) 
   oh me of little faith,


C           F          C           F
sometimes i pray for a slap in the face,
       Am        F                   G 
then i beg to be spared 'cause i'm a coward,
             C         F                   C           F
if there's a master of death i'll bet he's holding his breath,
              Am                 F              G
as i show the blind and tell the deaf about his power,


      F        C
i'm a doubting thomas,
F                  C
   i can't keep my promises,
F                 G           C      Cadd9
   'cause i don't know what's safe,
Am          G       F C, F C, F G 
   oh me of little faith

(BRIDGE)
G#
can i be used to help others find truth,
Am
when i'm scared i'll find proof that its a lie,
G#
can i be lead down a trail dropping bread crumbs,
Am
that prove i'm not ready to die,

C              F         C          F
please give me time to decipher the signs,

   i'll take your promise,
F                G        C      Cadd9
   though i know nothin's safe,
Am          G       F C,  F C,               F G C
