This is the first tab I have uploaded but not the first transcription I have done.  I
this will give u a pretty accurate idea of how to play "lift me up."  This is of coarse a
tune and every time I have accompanied someone singing this song I have played piano 
than a guitar.  Point being that a lot of the chords are not open chords on a guitar
inversions.  For example the intro is C F C, the F is an a 1st inversion so the bass 
is actually C.  Another point that one should understand with this song is that it is very 
 If you are going to sing it I would maybe try it in A or Bb.  It would make it a lot easier.

Intro: C F C F C Am7 G

C         F                   C
This road is anything but simple
F          C            Am7                            G
Twisted like a riddle I've seen high and I've seen low
C                  F                                 C
So loud, the voices of all my doubts
F                        C                    Am7                   G
Telling me to give up, to pack up and leave town
F                              G
Even so, I had to believe
F                                              G
Impossible means nothing to me, yeah

                  F     G   C
So can you lift me up,
                F                G
Turn the ashes into flames
                     F     G     C
‘Cause I have overcome
          F                               G
More than words will ever say
                         F    G    Am
And I've been given hope
                       F                       G
That there's a light on up the hall
And that a day will come
When the fight is won
         F                           G        C
And I think that day has just begun
C   C/E   C/F   C/G  C (eighth notes)
C                        F
Somewhere, everybody starts there
         F                      C
I'm counting on a small prayer,
Am7                      G
Lost in a nightmare
             C                      F                 C
But I'm here, and suddenly it's so clear
       F                                   C
The struggle through the long years
                        Am7                G
It taught me to outrun my fears
         F                         G
Everything worth having, oh
         F                                 G
Comes with trials worth withstanding

Oh, lift me up
Oh, lift me up
C                G
Oh, lift me up
Lift me up
Lift me up
C                 G
Oh, Lift me up

         F                    G
Down and out is overrated
          F                   G
And I need to be elevated
           F                    G
Looking up is not enough
          F                      G
No, I would rather rise above
     C    F   G

I guess it should be some chord in two last lines in the verse, between F ang G, it should be Am maybe...and I'm not sure about this "and the day will come when the fight is won" part, but the rest is great ;] thanks for the chords! ;]
