   D - A - G

 

   D       G        A      D          Bm         Em        A
1. Every night I say a prayer, in the hopes that there's a heaven,

    D        G        A     D            Bm      G         A
    but every day I'm more confused as the saints turn into sinners.

            Bm         D         Bm        E
    All the heroes and legends I knew as a child,

          G        D        A
    have fallen to idols of clay,

          D      G         A    D           G          Em          A
    and I feel this empty place inside, so afraid that I've lost my faith.

 
            D    G                  D     G
Show me the way,        show me the way !

        D          F#m           Bm      A          Em     A
Take me tonight to the river and wash my illusions away.

                    D      G  D  G    - D - G - D - G
please, show me the way.

 

       D      G    A         D          Bm      Em        A
2. And as I slowly drift to sleep, for a moment dreams are sacred,

     D      G          A           D         Bm       G           A
  I close my eyes and know there’s peace in a world so filled with hatred.

               Bm         D         Bm          E
    That I wake up each morning and turn on the news, 

         G              D            A
    to find we’ve so far to go,

       D         G      A       D        G      Em                 A
    and I keep on hoping for a sign, so afraid that I just won’t know.

 

            D    - G                          D     - G
Show me the way,        show me the way !

          D          F#m              Bm               A          Em    - A
Bring me tonight to the mountain and take my confusion away !

         D      - G - D - G      - D - G - D - G
and show me the way.

 

  F#                                Bm
    And if I see a light, should I believe ?

                        Em      - A - A7
    Tell me, how will I know !

 

+ F - G - F - G - F - G        + F - G - F - G        + A - G - A - G
+ instrumental = CHORUS lines 1 & 2

            D    - G                D     - G
Show me the way,        show me the way !

           D          F#m        Bm      A          Em   - A
Take me tonight to the river and wash my illusions away.

            D    - G                D     - G
Show me the way,        show me the way !

           D                F#m          Bm                A           Em  A
Give me the strength and the courage,to believe that I’ll get there someday.

                         D      - G - D - G    - D - G - D - G   
and, please, show me the way.


+ D - G - D - A

  D     G     A        D             Bm         Em        A
+ Every night I say a prayer, in the hopes that there's a heaven,
