I Was There Capo 4

[Intro] 
Em D Cadd9


[Verse 1]
G                         Cadd9
 I was there that night in Bethlehem
         Em                     D                   Cadd9
 And when Neil and the boys came to the moon in that tin can
   G           D               Cadd9
 At Gettysburg, Omaha beach, in Vietnam
        Em              D             Cadd9
 I heard every soldier's cry and every mama's prayer
      G    Cadd9
 I was there


[Verse 2]
G                              Cadd9
 I was there when you took your first breath
             Em              D                        Cadd9
 And when you lit that stolen Lucky Strike and like to choke to death
              G                                  
 When you were waist deep in Carter's Creek
    Cadd9                    Em                    D                 Cadd9  D
 And preacher John dunked you down in the water and raised you up for air
      G
 I was there


[Chorus]
Cadd9                    D
 I'm always around, I was then and I am now
    G            G/B           Cadd9
 And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
       Em
 When a road comes to an end
   D
I'm where you start again
    Cadd9         Em          Cadd9
 I'm never farther than a word away
                    D
 You've always got a friend


[Bridge]
          G                     Cadd9
 When your grandma passed, I was in that house
              Em                   D                  Cadd9           D
 And when your grandpa ran down the streets of gold to show her around
      G      Cadd9 Em Cadd9 D 
 I was there


[Chorus]
Cadd9                    D
 I'm always around, I was then and I am now
    G            G/B           Cadd9
 And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
       Em
 When a road comes to an end
    D
 I'm where you start again
    Cadd9         Em          Cadd9
 I'm never farther than a word away
                    D
 You've always got a friend


[Verse 3]
G                         Cadd9
 I was there last night on highway 9
         Em                     D                      Cadd9
 When you answered the phone and ran right through that stop sign
      G                                       Cadd9
 I was in the cab, of that bigger rig, in that trucker's ear
         Em                      D             Cadd9
 Made him swerve to the right and miss you by a hair
      G
 I was there


[Tag]
          Em                 D                  Cadd9             
 If you're feeling alone look up I’m the One who answers prayers
                     Em D Cadd9   
 And I'm always there
