NOTE: Jay Smith does many versions of this song. He plays it in many different
      keys and changes the lyrics, etc. So what I decided was to tab the CD
      version (which I believe this to be) and then someone requested a live
      version of which there are many to choose from. For all of the tabs here 
      I included the video I used to make the tabs from. Please take this into
      consideration when using these tabs. Thanks

                    LIKE A PRAYER 
                    (CD VERSION)
                      JAY SMITH

INTRO:
Am

VERSE:
 Am        G Dm Am
Life is a mystery
                G  Dm  Am
Everyone must stand a-lone
Am          G   F   C
I hear you call my name
 F       C    G       Am  
And it feels like... home


CHORUS:
C                  G                        F
 When you call my name it's like a little prayer
                 Am               G    C
I'm down on my knees, wanna take you there
                 G           C         F
In the midnight hour, I can feel your power
             Am                             F 
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there


PRE-CHORUS:
F            C    G             Am    
I hear your voice  it's like an angel sighing
F            C                 G
 I have no choice I hear your voice, 
            C
Feels like flying
F            C    G          Am        
 I close my eyes,  oh God I think I'm falling
F             C               G
 Out of the skies I close my eyes, heaven help me!


CHORUS:
C                  G                       F
 When you call my name it's like a little prayer
                Am                  G    C
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
                 G           C         F
In the midnight hour, I can feel your power
             Am                             F  
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there


PRE-CHORUS:
 F       C    G             Am 
Like a child,  you whisper softly to me
F              C                 G             C 
 You're in control just like a child, now I'm dancing
F              C    G           Am
 It's like a dream,  no end and no beginning
F                 C                 G
 You're here with me, it's like a dream
          F    C
Let the choir sing


CHORUS:
C                 G                       F
When you call my name it's like a little prayer
             Am                 G    C
Down on my knees, I wanna take you there
                 G           C         F
In the midnight hour, I can feel your power
             Am                             C
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there
                  G                        F
When you call my name It's like a little prayer
            Am                       F
Down on my knees, I wanna take you there
Am                 F    Am  
I wanna take you there


VERSE/OUTRO:
Am        G  Dm Am
Life is a mystery
                G   Dm Am
Everyone must stand alone
            G   F   
I hear you call my 
   (C)N.C,
Naaaaaaaaaame
                      Am
And it feels like... home


============== LIVE VERSION ==============

NOTE: This tab is in standard tuning. I do believe that Jay Smith
      is either tuned down a half step or more and/or in an
      alternate tuning. This explains why the chords here are NOT
      the ones he plays in this live version but sound like them.
