			     Only a Man - Jonny Lang
Tabbed by: Brian Bergner
Email: Bergie3941@comcast.net

Tuning: Standard

    D   D/F#   G    A     Bm    C

*- The A-A#-Bm is just a walk up the A string...you'll understand when you listen to the song

Verse 1:
D                         D/F#
I used to live my life in fear
    G               D
Was worried all the time
From waking up to laying down
  G               D
I had no peace of mind
    A              Bm
The world became a darkened place
  C                Bm
A struggle without end
G               D
Although bitter times those were
    A-A#-Bm                   G
The days that I began to understand
      A      D
I was only a man

Verse 2:
I grew up singing songs in church
With questions in my mind
Then turned my back and ran away
From God who gave me life

Then one night His presence fell
I wept and shook in it
I fell down and cried dear, Jesus
Rescue me again, I understand
I am only a man

And He said…

What will it be now
Will you choose Me or keep swimming up stream now

I’ve been inside your head
Hearing you scream out
But here I am just take My hand and I’ll take out
           G                    D
All of the pain, and all of the fear

Outro: (Just D, D/F#, G...listen to the song for the placements)
I’ll give You my burdens
	I’ll give you peace
All of my desires
	I’ll give you what you need
And what about these chains Lord
	I’ll set you free
But they’re so heavy
	Lay them at My feet
I’ll lay them at Your feet
Just promise You won’t leave
	I’ll never leave
So where do I go from here Lord
	Just follow Me, just follow Me
I’ll follow You, wherever You lead
Wherever You lead…

Something like that.  There are hammer-ons and pull-offs I didn't write in, but they're 
to pick up if you listen to the song.  It's pretty easy, just listen to it and you'll 
it pretty quick.
