Tuning: Standard


C  D  G  x2

       G
If you take my heart
      C                    
Don't leave the smallest part
        D               C                 G
I've no need to live if you're to come up gone
         G 
An as my life turns to a song
          C     
And if and when I treat you wrong
     D             C        G
No I never want to hurt our family
           G
And I would give up everything
           C
No this is not just about me
            D              C             G
And I don't know a plainer way to say it Babe
             G 
And they may pay us off in fame
               C
Though that is not why we came
      D              C                       G
And I know well and good that won't heal our hearts

            C
We came for salvation
             G
We came for family
            D                      C              G
We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away
           C
We came to break the bad
           G
We came to cheer the sad
           D                C              G
We came to leave behind the world a better way

           G 
Now if I'm walkin' through the rain
      C
And I hear you call my name
       D            C             G
I will break into a run without a pause
             G
And if your love laughs at your dreams
                 C
Well it's not as bad as it seems
       D          C               G
Either way one of them has got to go
           G
And if you take of my soul
        C
You can still leave it whole
          D            C             G
With the pieces of you own you leave behind

            C
We came for salvation
            G
We came for family
            D          C                          G
We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away
           C
We came to break the bad
           G
We came to cheer the sad
           D                C              G
We came to leave behind the world a better way

            G
And I would give up everything
               C
And if you were to come up clean
            D               C             G
And see you shine so bright in a world of woe
             G
And they may pay us off in fame
            C
But that is not why we came
          D            C                 G
And if it compromises truth then we will go

            C
We came for salvation
            G
We came for family
            D          C                          G
We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away
           C
We came to break the bad
           G
We came to cheer the sad
           D                C              G
We came to leave behind the world a better way

Good tab, but I don't think the C after the D is needed in the verse.

i think its a D7 in place of the D but both ways sound fine

The D should be a D7 and it also incorrectly has an extra D on the walk down. Lyrics are incorrect.
