Imagine that?  I looked for this song but didn't find it, only the parody (what
if God Smoked Cannabis)

SO I present the original Lyrics by Joan Osbourne, and chords from Pati_, to give
you the song as it was meant to be.

Capo 2nd fret


[Intro]

Em - Cadd9 - G - D


[Verse]

 Em          Cadd9   G             D
If God had a name, what would it be
             Em            C
And would you call it to his face
G            D                Em         Cadd9
If you were faced with him in all his glory
G              D              Em       Cadd9       G   D
What would you ask if you had just one question
 
   
[Pre-Chorus]

Cadd9             G        D
And yeah yeah God is great 
Cadd9       G        D
Yeah yeah god is good
Cadd9       D
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah


[Chorus]

         Em      Cadd9       G   D
What if god was one of us?
         Em      Cadd9           G   D
Just a slob like one of us?
  Em              Cadd9                         
Just a stranger on the bus
  G            D                Em   Cadd9   G    D
Just tryin' to make his way home


[Verse]

Em           Cadd9  G                  D
If God had a face what would it look like
          Em       C
And would you want to see
G              D             Em           Cadd9
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
G              D              Em       Cadd9       G   D
In things like heaven and in jesus and the saints and all the prophets


[Pre-Chorus]

Cadd9       G        D     Cadd9   G          D
And yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
Cadd9        D
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


[Chorus]

  Em      Cadd9       G   D
What if God was one of us
  Em      Cadd9       G   D
Just a slob like one of us
   Em             Cadd9
Just a stranger on the bus
  G            D                Em   Cadd9   G    D
Trying to make his way home
Em      Cadd9       G   D
He's trying to make his way home
Em      Cadd9       G   D
Back up to heaven all alone
     Em          Cadd9
Nobody calling on the phone
  G            D                Em   Cadd9   G    D
Except for the pope maybe in rome


[Pre-Chorus]

Cadd9       G        D     Cadd9   G          D
And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
Cadd9        D
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


[Chorus]

  Em      Cadd9       G   D
What if god was one of us
  Em      Cadd9       G   D
Just a slob like one of us
 Em             Cadd9
Just a stranger on the bus
 G            D                Em   Cadd9
Trying to make his way home
G             D             Em     Cadd9  G  D
Just trying to make his way home
  Em      Cadd9       G   D
Like a holy rolling stone
  Em      Cadd9       G   D
Back up to heaven all alone
  Em      Cadd9       G   D
Just trying to make his way home
 Em             Cadd9
Nobody calling on the phone
 G            D                Em   Cadd9   G    D
Except for the pope maybe in rome


This is the FIRST TIME I've EVER submitted chords.  Be gentle!

Very nice... Can you post the whole song as a tablature, with the lead electric guitar (solo-ish), for those of us who want to play this song with a band?
