TITLE: In My Hour of Darkness
Lyrics and Chords

In my hour of darkness
In my time of need
Oh, Lord grant me vision
Oh, Lord grant me speed

/ G - / / D7  - / C G / 

Once I knew a young man went driving through the night
Miles and miles without a word, with just his high-beam lights
Who'd have ever thought they'd build such a deadly Denver bend
To be so strong, to take as long as it would till the end

/ G - - - / D7 - C G / C G C G / C - - G /


Another young man safely strummed his silver string guitar
And he played to people everywhere, some say he was a star
But he was just a country boy, his simple songs confess
And the music he had in him, so very few possess


Then there was an old man, kind and wise with age
And he read me just like a book and he never missed a page
And I loved him like my father, and I loved him like my friend
And I knew his time would shortly come but I did not know just when


Oh, Lord grant me vision
Oh, Lord grant me speed
