Lyrics

GOD GIVE ME STRENGTH

INTRO
Dsus4/E bass Dsus4/Ebass Em G Em G Dsus4 E/bass

G D C G
God give me strength; Give me some relief now
G D C G
I'm lonely and tired and it's straining my belief now
G D C G
With faith in the future -- hoping for the best now
G D C G
I want to have my work done I want to have some rest now

CHORUS
G D C G
I talk about liberty I ask for you to give it to me
G D C Em
Never really had none God give me strength

Give the people necessities; Give them lots to eat now
Give them a home keep them off the street now
Em D
Remove the cause of war Bring us peace next door
C D
Make us fair and free Bring us liberty

REPEAT CHORUS
REPEAT INTRO
BRIDGE

We will make it some day today we can start now
Show us the way make a peaceful heart now
We got a lot of challenges; We got a big surprise now
We're coming home; Open up our eyes now
