About this tab version
Not in the original key, I believe the original to be in the key of D (capo 7) which is too high for most vocal ranges. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
[Verse 1]
G                       C           G
Under the steeple we were all God's people
     D          Em       C           G
If we loved one another, sisters and brothers
G                            C               G
But then the preacher told me, God loves the straight man only
D               Em           C            G
Straight is the same as holy so saith the Lord

G                            C           G
Father could you ever love a person like me?
D                   Em              C             G
Or did you seal the gates above and throw out the keys
                    Em             C         G
You say we are your children if we trust and believe
D                   Em               C        G
So God please don't forget about the children like me

[Verse 2]
G                           C            G
While the world was sleeping I'd stay up weeping
         D            Em          C      G
Wondering who was the liar, my God or my desire
G                              C           G
If straight means holy then I -- I guess I don't mind lonely
D                   Em              C             G
But what if we have this life only, what if I was wrong?

[Verse 3]
G                       C         G
They say I'm ruined, but I'm only human
         D            Em            C         G
They say, it could be Satan, but God I'm your creation
G                     C                   G
What is and isn't sin, I'll let it go and let you in
         D          Em                C             G
All this time I was praying, all this time you were saying...

G                     C       G     D
Come lay your burdens down on me
     G                C       G
Come lay your burdens down on me
G                     C       G     D
Come lay your burdens down on me
     G                C       G
Come lay your burdens down on me
