Jars of Clay--Like a Child
written by: Jars of Clay, Lyrics by Dan Haseltine
transcribed by: David Lawson and Carrie Faith Ingram

***O.K. all you Jars fans out there, I tried to figure this out, and I've
somewhat succeded. I know at least the chords are mostly right---just
mess around with the progressions here, and see if it works. I don't know
exactly how to write tab, so this should be interesting!!!***

{here's some chords that would be easier to write in tab, but i don't know
how to do that}
     {E   A   D   G   B   E}
1     x   x   x    x    8   7
2     x   x   x    x    7   5
3     x   x   x    x    5   3
4     x   x   x    x    3   2
5     x   x   x    x    3   3
6     x   x   x    x   12  10

{during the verses, strum the top strings only--as if they were power chords}

             G--C2
Dear God,
     G--C2                 G--C2
surround me as I speak,
           G--C2                                     G--C2
the bridges that I walk across are weak,
                  G         C2        G--C2                       G--C2
and the frustrations fill the void that I can't solely bear.
            1-2-3-4-5
Dear God,
         1  2   3  4  5
don't let me fall apart,
     2     1    2    3      6
You've held me close to You,
                 1        2--2     1      2
and I have turned away and searched
   3   1-2  -  2 - 1     2--4
for answers I can't understand.

CHORUS:

D2-D-Dsus   C2      G             C2
They say that I can move the mountains
       D2-D-Dsus  C2                  G    C2
and send them falling [crashing] to the sea
     D2-D-Dsus   C2   G      C2
They say that I can walk on water
 D2-D-Dsus  C2  G  C2
if I would follow and believe
with faith like a child

G--C2   G--C2   G--C2  G

{here, I just try the patterns in the first verse.....HAVE FUN!!!}

Sometimes, when I feel miles away
and my eyes can't see Your face
I wonder if I've grown to lose the
recklessness I walked in light of You...
