Verse 1 : She was b[D]orn in Kansas City, r[Bm]aised in Arkansas
          Fell in l[G]ove with an Ex-Marin[D]e   [A]
          She al[D]ready had three babies; he had [Bm]one of his own
Em D/F# A ( A4_A )
They came together for another and me
          [G]Our family never shared the s[A]ame last name
          [G]But our family was a [A]family the same, and they say
Refrain : [D]Blood is thicker than [Bm]water
Em A D ( D4_D )
Oh, but love is thicker than blood
Verse 2 : [D]Wreck out on the highway, [Bm]rain falling down
          Lord, he m[G]ust have fell asleep at the w[D]hee[A]l
          There's a n[D]umber of people just s[Bm]tanding around
Em D/F# A ( A4_A )
Lord I can't condemn the fear that they feel
          For that [Bm]river of [Bm/A]red could be the [G]death of me
          [Em]God, give me s[D/F#]trength and keep rem[G]inding [A]me that
Refrain : [D]Blood is thicker than [Bm]water
          Oh, but l[Em]ove is t[A]hicker than [D]blood
Bridge :  And if [G]blood is thicker than w[D]ater
          Well then [C]what are we fighthing f[D]or
          [G]We're all sons and d[F#m]aughters
          [G]Of something that means so [Gmaj7/E]much more [A]
Verse 3 : I s[D]ee it on my TV but I [Bm]can't understand
          Lord it's [G]one big contradiction to [D]me    [A]
          How in God's [D]name we love thy neighbor with [Bm]fists in our hands
          And kill each [Em]other when we [D/F#]just don't ag[A]ree
          [G]Why can't we see the walls we [A]can't see through
          [G]And see what God's been telling [A]me and you, and that is
Refrain : [D]Blood is thicker than [Bm]water
          Oh, but l[Em7]ove, love is t[A]hicker than []bl[D]oo[]d
