1. There You Go


There You Go-              Words and Music by Aaron Tate

D5 Bm7 G5     G/B  Asus  Ano5
Is this the strange feeling
D5 Bm7         G5  G/B  Asus  Ano5
Of you working all to good
D5    Bm7  G5 G/B   Asus  Ano5
'Cause I am so confused
           D5         Bm7      G5    G/B  Asus  Ano5
I don't even ask for what I should 

D     Bm           G               A
When I asked for and deserved a stone
        D    Bm                        G          A
You broke and gave your body as bread
D     Bm               G                          A            D          Bm
And even the stone that dropped down and rolled away
                       G
Spoke of the one who bled 

D              A2       G
There you go working good from my bad
D          A2          G
There you go making robes from my rags
D           A2         G
There you go melting crowns from my calves
D          A2          G          
There you go working good of all I have
         G
Till all I have's not that bad 

When I asked for and deserved a serpent
You gave a net full of fish
And even the serpent that told the lie
When lifted high foretold the gift 

Repeat chorus

A7             A7sus4               A7
For you so loved the unlovable
A7           A7sus4             Badd4
That you gave the ineffable
                      Aadd2                       Badd4
That who so believes the unbelievable
                             Aadd2       E     A2    E    Bsus4 A2
Will gain the unattainable

2. Thankful


Thankful                Words and Music by Derek Webb
Capo 5th fret

E       E7      E      E7   E
You know I ran across
           E6/9
An old box of letters
                      A2                     Am                   E    E7
When I was bagging up some clothes for goodwill 
E                  E7   E         E7    E
And you know I had to laugh
           E6/9
At the same old struggles
            A2                          Am             E       E7
That plagued me then are plaguing me still 

'Cause I know the road is long
From the ground to glory
But a boy can hope he's getting some place 
But you see I'm running from
The very clothes I'm wearing
And dressed like this I'm fit for the chase 

            D2   A2            E
‘Cause there is none righteous
        D2          A2          E
Not one who understands
D2         A2             E                        D2
There is none who seeks God no not one
                      A2
I said, no not one 

                         E                    F#add4         D2            A2              E    E7   E
And so I am thankful that I'm incapable of doing any good on my own

'Cause we're all still-born
Dead in our transgressions
Shackled up to the sin we hold so dear 
What part can I play
In the work of redemption
'Cause I can't refuse and I cannot add a thing 

'Cause I am just like Lazarus
And I can hear your voice
I stand and rub my eyes and walk to you
Because I have no choice 

And so I am thankful that I'm incapable of doing any good on my own
Said I'm so thankful that I'm incapable of doing any good on my own yeah 

'Cause it's by grace I have been saved
And through faith it's not my own
It is a gift of God and not by works
Lest anyone should boast

Repeat chorus

D2    A2    E  until end

3. Shifting Sand


Shifting sand                              Words and music by Aaron Tate
Tune down 1/2 step

E7   A(add2)            B(add4)
Sometimes I believe all the lies
         E7          A(add2)     B(add4)
So I can do the things I should despise
E7 A(add2) B(add4)
And everyday I am swayed
        E7   A(add2) B(add4)
By whatever is on my mind
E7 A(add2)       B(add4)
I hear it all depends on my faith
        E7    A(add2) B(add4)
So I'm feeling precarious
E7       A(add2)   B(add4)
The only problem I have with these mysteries
   E7        A(add2) B(add4)
Is they're so mysterious
 
G#m7  F#m                       E
And like a consumer I've been thinking
                 A2       
If I could just get a bit more
G#m            F#m               E 
More than my fifteen minutes of faith
         A2 A2II A(add2)
Then I'd be secure

Chorus:
E             A2
My faith is like shifting sand
 C#m       B(add4) A(add2)
Changed by every wave
E            A2
My faith is like shifting sand
      C#m B(add4) A(add2)  
So I stand on grace

I've begged you for some proof
For my Thomas eyes to see
A slithering staff, a leprous hand
And lions resting lazily
 
A glimpse of your back-side glory
And this soaked altar going ablaze
But you know I've seen so much
And I explained it away

Chorus

Bridge:
B(add4)
Waters rose as my doubts reigned
A(add2)
My sand-castle faith it slipped away
G#m                           F#m
Found myself standing on your grace

It'd been there all the time

4. Faith in my eyes


Faith my eyes                       Words and music by Derek Webb
Capo 1st fret

Intro  G    Gmaj7    C2    
         Em7    Em9   Am7  G/B  C2

     C2  G/B       Am7 C/G   D2/F#
As I survey the ground for ants
C2             G/B    D7sus4    G     C/G
Looking for a place to sit and read
         C2  G/B      Am7     C/G    D2/F#
I'm reminded of the streets of my hometown
            C2               G/B          D7sus4            G   C/G
How they're much like this concrete that's warm beneath my feet 

And how I'm all wrapped up in my mother's face
With a touch of my father just up around the eyes
And the sound of my brother's laugh
But more wrapped up in what binds our ever distant lives 

G     Gmaj7   C2
But if I must go
Em7       Em9            Am7  G/B   C2
Things I trust will be better off without me
    G        Gmaj7    C2
But I don't want to know
Em7     Em9    Am7  G/B    C2
Life is better off   a   mystery

             C2         D7sus4          G    C/G   G
So keep 'em coming these lines on the road
              C2                D7sus4          Em      G
And keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load
               C2                D7sus4           G    C/G   G
And keep me guessing with these blessings in disguise
                    C2              D7sus4     G    C/G
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes 

Hometown weather is on TV
And I imagine the lives of the people living there
And I'm curious if they imagine me
Cause they just wanna leave; I wish that I could stay 

But I get turned around
And I mistake my happiness for blessing
But I'm blessed as the poor
Still I judge success by how I'm dressing 

              C2        D7sus4          G   C/G   G
So keep 'em coming these lines on the road
                C2             D7sus4            Em      G
And keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load
               C2                D7sus4           G    C/G   G
And keep me guessing with these blessings in disguise
                     C2             D7sus4     F2   C2   G  C/G  G
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes 
           F2   C2   D
La-la-la’s

So I'll sing a song of my hometown
I'll breathe the air and walk the streets
Maybe find a place to sit and read
And the ants are welcome company 

Repeat chorus
                
                C2               D7sus4    G   C/G  G 
I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes.
                     C2             D7sus4     F2   C2  G  C/G  G
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes...

5. Where I Began


Where I began                     Words and music by Aaron Tate

G                                 D     C  D       C
The grass looked greener on the other side so I tried to
G                    D   C    D   C
Snatch myself from your hand
G                              D   C        D         C
Caught a boat to anywhere but Nineveh and, well, you know, I 
G                 D   C   D   C
Got spit back on dry land. 

Give me purity and give me continence
But oh no, not yet
Like a coin hiding in the corner trying not to be swept
I was trying not to be swept. 

D                            C                   G
Kicking against these goads sure did cut up my feet
D                                         C
And didn't your hands get bloody as you washed them clean. 

G      D          C
Here I am again, back where I began
G   D                 C
Try as I may I can't get away from you
G       D                    C
And all of these roads that lead me to roam, bring me back home.
G      D         C             G      D     C
Here I am again, back where I began. 

So you have yourself your ninety nine
Isn't that enough for you
Still you followed me to the shadowed valley
Carried me on your shoulders too. 

I've done the work of Sisyphus
Thinking that I could get over this hill
But the one thing I can't get over now...(is the)
Is the force of your will.

Repeat chorus 2x

6. Table for two


Table for two                       Words and music by Derek Webb
Capo 4th fret

D2      D2/C#      D2/B         D2/A        Gno3  D2/F#  Em9  A7sus4
Danny and I spent another late night over pancakes
  Bm(add4)     Bm(add4)/F#  E7                       G   Gsus   G
We talked about soccer and how every man's just the same
    D2      D2/C#           D2/B          D2/A            Gno3  D2/F#  Em9  A7sus4
We made speculation on the 'who's and the 'when's of our futures
        Bm(add4)  Bm(add4)/F#   E7             A7         D2       D
And how everyone's lonely but still we just couldn't complain 

       Gno3  D2/F#  Em7  D2   A7sus4   A7
And how we   just  hate being alone
     Gno3  D2/F#   Em7  D2      A7sus4   A7
Could I    have  missed my only chance
    Gno3  D2/F# Em7   D2       A7sus4   A7
And now   I'm  just wasting my time
          G    Gsus    G
Looking around 

But you know I know better I'm not gonna worry 'bout nothing
'Cause if the birds and the flowers survive then I'll make it okay
If given a chance and a rock see which one breaks a window
And see which one keeps me up all night and into the day 

Because I'm so scared of being alone
That I forgot what house I live in
But it's not my job to wait by the phone
For her to call 

Well this day's been crazy but everything's happened on schedule
From the rain and the cold to the drink that I spilled on my shirt
'Cause You knew how You'd save me before I fell dead in the garden
And You knew this day long before You made me out of dirt 

And You know the plan You have for me
And You can't plan the ends and not plan the means
And so I suppose I just need some peace
To get me to sleep

G  D/F#  G                 C2               Dsus  D
Oh, my soul, sometimes we don't know what to do
            Em              D/F#       G
We work so hard at being tough on our own
            G/B      C2

A back that's strong
Am7             D/F#           G
Hey hey, you can get what you want
     Am7   G/B            C2        G/B     Am7
Climb on a back that's strong 

If you could save me a place in heaven
With a clean well lighted room
I'd muscle up to Armageddon
Wave to you darlin' be home soon 
If you could show me the story of love
I would write it again and again
And then you could be the women you need
If you'd just let me be the man that I am 

Repeat Chorus

Oh, I don't know
Sometimes we try to hard to see
But we've got one down and one more to go
That's when you say to me

Repeat chorus

      D       C       C            D
I'm scattered as the woman whose body
     D             C             C   C2  G/B  D
Was torn for the twelve tribes 

G                           D         C    C   D
When did my heart get so petrified
G                    D          C   C   D
When did it get so hard to feel
G                          D             C   C
When did my heart get so afraid to love
D            D           C    C    D
When did it get so hard 

And the easy-living Gnostic proud
Use their knowledge
Like a wrecking ball to tear me down
Flooding me with their fallacies
I can't walk on this water
I'm starting to drown 

Repeat chorus

D 
Strike this rock with your rod
       C
I'll take the blows
D                         C
Till your living water begins to flow
D                      C
As it flowed from the man of sorrow's sides
D                     C
On that day when his body was torn for the twelve tribes
D
Was torn for the twelve tribes

Repeat chorus

9. Somewhere North


Somewhere north

Fmaj9                         G      Gsus4
It's a muggy night in Houston
Fmaj9                              G      Gsus4        Fmaj9
And all the intersections are like full serve stations
                      G    Gsus4   Am7    Gsus4   G
I'm on my way to a familiar place
Fmaj9                    G    Gsus4
It's cold in Kansas city
Fmaj9                                      G   Gsus4               Fmaj9
And you can no more hear me than I can see your face
                  G  Gsus4             Am7
How I wish it was just you and me

G                             C5        Am7        Fmaj9
We wouldn't have to talk above the crowd
                                G           Gsus4
We wouldn't have to talk so loud

        C5  Am7          Gsus4         Fmaj9      
'Cause I give you my life and all I am
                      G
But what have I to give
C5    Am7           Gsus4          Fmaj9           G
So I hand you a candid photograph of this little boy
          D2/F#                    Fmaj9
'Cause I've nothing to my name
     Gsus4             Fmaj9
But I can give you that

I don't miss the driving
Seems like forever
And I'm always driving in my mind
And wearing out the road that gets me there

And I'm driving till my eyes just can't see straight
But I suppose that it's getting late

Repeat chorus

Am7             Fmaj9
I may never find the sleep
      Am7             Fmaj9
I've lost all feeling in my hands and
Am7                         Fmaj9
Feet may touch the ground but
                        G           Gsus4     C5   Am7  Gsus4  Fmaj9      G
My mind's somewhere north of here

10. Daring Daylight Escape


Daring daylight escape                               Words and music by Derek Webb
Capo 2nd fret

              G                                  F              C      F  C
I've got my mind made up, I've got to love you or leave you fast
F#                 G                                   F        C      F   C
Cause I've been thinking clear and I don't know how long it'll last 
F#               G                               F          C          F    C
Cause just like Uri Geller I'm bound to twist the facts around
F#           G                                 F             C         F   C
I've got to get them straight before my baby up and leaves town 

          D            B7
Cause I can't walk on water
          Em                  A7sus4   A7
And if I chase you I might drown
     C            D
And I'm already up to my neck 

   G                             F
If I may pose a question it'll only take a second
         C                          D
Cause I know that it's getting late.
       G                     F  
And depending on your answer I might have to pack
             C                    D
And make a daring daylight escape
              C                     D
Because it's either high time to make you mine
       G                B7         Em   E7b13
Or I swear it's time to get outta town
     C                D                           G          F    C
So please say yes quick cause the sun's going down 

London's nice but it's the last place you wanna go
But there's no crime and you can catch a broadway show
Cause it's just so far and it's bound to get a hold on you
And I've got front page headlines pulled right outta yesterday's news 

You can read all about it
About boy meets girl and then
screws the whole thing up
Just like always 

Repeat chorus

It's no crime to love you
But my heart's still doing time
It's acting on it's best behavior

Repeat chorus

11. 40 Acres


40 Acres
Capo 4th fret

G            Dsus         G/B                 C2
Out on these Texas plains you can see for a million lives
G              Dsus           G/B          C2
And there's a thousand exits between here and the state line
G          Dsus         G/B    C2
About the last time that I saw you
          G        Dsus   G/B        C2
You said call me Pandora, call me a fool

G/B                                C2
And I'm thinking this view it could do you some good
G/B                       C2
So drop these scales and take a look

D                Em7            C2
There's 40 acres and redemption to be found
D          Em7      C2
Just along down the way
D           Em7            C2
There is a place where no plow blade has turned the ground
D            Em7            C2          D               G     Dsus  
And you will turn it over,(hey) 'cause out here hope remains
G/B    C2              G       Dsus  G/B  C2
'Cause out here hope remains...

Out here the Texas sky is as big as the sea
And you're alone in your room like an island floating free
Your spirit's hanging in a bottle out on a tree
You say that you're the black sheep, I say you're still family

So throw that bottle to the waves
They'll bring you in to me and from the shore you will see

Repeat Chorus

Out here the Texas rain is the hardest I've ever seen
It'll wash your house away, but it'll also make you clean
Now these rocks they are crying too
And this whole land is calling out for you

Repeat Chorus
