TITLE: If Ever I Stray
Lyrics and Chords

[ G = 320033 ; Cadd9 = x32033 ]

Forgive me someone for I have sinned
And I know not where I should begin
And some days it feels like you just can't win
No matter what you do or say

/ G - / Cadd9 - / D -  / Am C /

Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger
Life is short but it feels much longer
When you've lost the fight, yeah, you've lost that hunger
To pull yourself through the day

   But if ever I stray from the path I follow
   Take me down to the English Channel
   Throw me in where the water is shallow
   And then drag me on back to shore

   'Cause love is free and life is cheap
   And as long as I've got me a place to sleep
   Clothes on my back and some food to eat
   Then I can't ask for anything more

   So come on everybody, sing it 1, 2, 3, 4!

   / G - / C - / D - / Am C / : / G - - - /

So we all have secrets that we hold inside
They're the worst little things that you never can fight
And the worst one of all that you just can't hide
Is that you're never quite as strong as you sound

So I'm sorry, baby, for the times I've hurt you
Sorry, friends, for the times I desert you
Most days it feels like I don't deserve you
And I wonder that you're all still around


Come on and join me in the water and swim for hope
Sometimes it's hard to remember
I couldn't do this on my own

/ C - / / /

...Then I can't ask for anything more

I can't ask for anything more

/ D - - - /

The path I chose isn't straight and narrow
It wanders around like a drunken fellow
Some days it's hard for me to follow
But if you've got my back I'll go on
If you've got my back I'll go on

... / D G /
