IMPORTANT NOTES:

I have watched 2,004,556 videos of Mat Kearney playing this song.
 I have also seen him live, front row.
  I suggest you watch some videos of him playing it,
   and then compare what you see him playing to 
    what is in this tab. Thank you!  

Studio Version: 

Mat will play some of the song with the piano, 
 and the other parts with an acoustic guitar.  
  The tuning for the studio version is STANDARD.


Live Version: 
        
Mat will SOMETIMES play the live version of this song 
 in STANDARD TUNING, and other times 1/2 STEP DOWN TUNING. 
  Mat will sometimes even tune his guitar by ear and ask,
   "Good Enough?"  So, if you play along with his acoustic
     performances, it might not sound exactly right.
       

Here are some GREAT reference videos:

Tuning: Standard

Chords Used in this Song:

 ---------------------
|                     |
|  C         (x32010) |
|  C/B       (x20010) |
|  Am        (x02210) |
|  G5        (3x0033) |
|  Fmaj7     (x33210) |
|  Gmaj6     (x55430) |
|  Dm7       (xx0211) |
|                     |
 ---------------------

Note:  In the studio version, SOMETIMES you can
           hear Mat use this G chord: (x55433).  
                For Example, listen to 1:51-1:52.
                  (Right before he says "We're gonna get there soon")

       However, Mat just plays the Gmaj6 chord live 
           and sometimes doesn't even hit the 
                high E string at all.
 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 1:
   
C                         C/B
  She got the call today,     One out of the gray


Am                            G5
  And when the smoke cleared,    It took her breath away


C                              C/B
  She said she didn't believe,     It could happen to me


Am                        G5                  Fmaj7
   I guess we're all one phone call from our knees


Gmaj6
    We're gonna get there soon


C                          C/B
  If every building falls,     And all the stars fade


Am                                       G5                   Fmaj7
   We'll still be singing this song, The one they can't take away
                    
                   
                    Gmaj6                       Am
I'm gonna get there soon, She's gonna be there too

               
               G5                       Fmaj7
Cryin' in her room, Prayin' Lord come through


Gmaj6
    We're gonna get there soon

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus:

C
  Oh it's your light, Oh it's your way


Fmaj7
  Pull me out of the dark, Just to shoulder the weight


Dm7
  Cryin' out now, From so far away

G5                       Fmaj7     C     G5     Am
  You pull me closer to looooooooooooooooooove

           Fmaj7     C     G5
Closer to loooooooooooooooooove

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 2:  

C                     C/B
  Meet me once again,     Down off Lake Michigan


Am                              G5
  Where we could feel the storm blowin' down with the wind


C                      C/B
  And don't apologize,     For all the tears you've cried


Am                     G5
  You've been way too strong now for all your life


Fmaj7                  Gmaj6                      Am 
  I'm gonna get there soon, You're gonna be there too

               
                G5                      Fmaj7 
Cryin' in your room, Prayin' Lord come through


Gmaj6
    We're gonna get there soon

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus:

"Oh it's your light
Oh it's your way
Pull me out of the dark
Just to shoulder the weight
Cryin' out now
From so far away
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
