Joseph Arthur - I used to know how to walk on water

(standard tuning)

(verse 1)

Em                                   
I used to know how to walk on water
Am                        
I used to be so unafraid
Bm                               
I could save the weakest tyrant
Em
And I could knight the proudest slave
Em
I could give riches to beggars
Am
And give love to the one who hates
Bm
I could tempt a heart so frozen
Em
And I could torture the strength of fate

(verse 2)

Em
I used to know how to walk on water
Am
The king of kings they knew me well
Bm
I could give sight to blind men
Em
And make a mute man sing in hell
Em
But now I watch with awe and wonder
Am
Doubt has now befallen me
Bm
I ask The Lord to show me mercy
Em
And to give me sympathy

(Chorus)

G                D
Forgive me now my useless thunder
Am               G
When I was such a dynamo
             D
I am here and I am humble 
Am                   G
For I know not which way to go

(verse 3)

Em
I used to know how to walk on water
Am
I could give the dead hot life
Bm
I could murder the joy of Satan
Em
And make his mistress be my wife
Em
I will be the dream of cowards 
Am
And they will never resemble me 
Bm
I could see them doubt me under
Em
As I set each one free
Em
Now I just sit and wonder what
Am
illness has befallen me 
Bm
This sick of mine make me surrender to 
Em
this world of vacancy

(chorus)

G                D
Forgive me now my useless thunder
Am               G
When I was such a dynamo
              D
I am here and I am humble
Am                   G 
For I know not which way to go

(verse 4)

Em
I used to know how to walk on water
Am
Now I sink in the dirt
Bm
No kind of holy laughter 
Em
Seems to reach beyond the hurt
Em
I used to know how to walk on water
Am
I used to be at peace with love
Bm
All it's strength and all it's power 
Em
Would lift me up so high above
Em
Burning star of holy wonder
Am
Women would rush to be with me
Bm                                  
But now I'm lost inside the thunder of 
Em
pain which holds insanity

(chorus)

G                 D
Forgive me now my useless thunder
Am                G
When I was such a dynamo
             D
I am here and I am humble
Am                   G
For I know not which way to go
G                 D
Forgive me now my useless thunder
Am                G
When I was such a dynamo
             D
I am here and I am humble
Am                   G 
For I know not which way to go

(the song fades with the chorus sung in a slightly different way, but with the 
ffffffffffffsame chords and rhythm, you can jam on that)
