CHORUS

E                       A               E                 B7
Shine your light, a - gainst the dark, stand upright and make your mark
E                    A                    E           B7       E
Do your best, wher - ever you may be, and shine your light for me

VERSE 1

E             A           E                B7
Long ago when I was just, a boy of tender years
E                  A              E          B7      E
My father told me life's a road, paved with joy and tears
E                 A                 E                       B7
And as you travel you must choose, between what's right and wrong
E                A          E            B7      E
Remember sin is giving in, for Heaven's sake be strong

CHORUS

E                       A               E                 B7
Shine your light, a - gainst the dark, stand upright and make your mark
E                    A                    E           B7       E
Do your best, wher - ever you may be, and shine your light for me

VERSE 2

E               A            E                    B7
As I grew be - yond my teens, the world began to press
E                      A             E       B7        E
My father's words be - gan to fade, lost to selfish - ness
E                   A           E                      B7
And after years of walking down, the wrong side of the track
E                      A           E            B7         E
One night I cried and deep inside, my father's words came back

CHORUS

E                       A               E                 B7
Shine your light, a - gainst the dark, stand upright and make your mark
E                    A                    E           B7       E
Do your best, wher - ever you may be, and shine your light for me

BRIDGE

A                             E       A               E
My father said that kindness is, the light of God in man
E                 A               E           B7   E
So I was told to shine like gold, on every - one I can

Long ago when I was just, a boy of tender years
C                  F              C          G7      C
My father told me life's a road, paved with joy and tears
C                 F                 C                       G7
And as you travel you must choose, between what's right and wrong
C                F          C            G7      C
Remember sin is giving in, for Heaven's sake be strong

CHORUS

C                       F               C                 G7
Shine your light, a - gainst the dark, stand upright and make your mark
C                    F                    C           G7       C
Do your best, wher - ever you may be, and shine your light for me

C               F            C                    G7
As I grew be - yond my teens, the world began to press
C                      F             C       G7        C
My father's words be - gan to fade, lost to selfish - ness
C                   F           C                      G7
And after years of walking down, the wrong side of the track
C                      F           C            G7         C
One night I cried and deep inside, my father's words came back

CHORUS

C                       F               C                 G7

C                    F                    C           G7       C
Do your best, wher - ever you may be, and shine your light for me

BRIDGE

F                             C       F               C
My father said that kindness is, the light of God in man
C                 F               C           G7   C
So I was told to shine like gold, on every - one I can
