Pray For The Fish-crd  Randy Travis

[B]Everybody gathered where the [A]river
runs [E]wider at the [B]edge of town[A] [E]
To [B]see if that Eddy Lee [A]Vaughn bap[E]tism
was [B]really gonna go d[A]own[E]
[B]Folks bet hard-earned [A]money
that [E]water wouldn't [B]change a thing[A] [E]
They [B]set the odds at a [A]hundred to [E]one,
his [B]soul would never come c[A]lean[F#]
Then the preacher said people take a moment or two
[F#]There's something we need to do
Chorus:
(nothing) B
Pray for the fish,
they won't [A]know what's [E]comin'
when then [B]sins start rollin' off the [A]likes of [E]him
[B]Lord be with 'em they [A]ain't done [E]nothin'
[B]Please won't you leave 'em
just a [A]little bit of [E]room to [F#]swim
(nothing) B
Pray for the fish
Verse 2:
Well the [B]preacher ducked him under
that [A]cool clear [E]water, then he [B]did it again[A] [E]
[B]Eddy came up yelling, "Oh [A]Lord in [E]Heaven,
Halle[B]lujah, I'm a brand new [A]man"[E]
Well the [B]water got to bubblin'
the [A]sky got to [E]rumblin',
and the [B]thunder backed up the [A]choir[E]
The [B]fish started jumpin'
it was [A]like they were [E]swimmin' in a [B]lake of fire[A] [E]
Then [F#]Eddy's mamma stepped out of the crowd
and [F#]started yellin' out loud
Chorus;
(nothing) B
Pray for the fish,
they won't [A]know what's [E]comin'
when the [B]sin starts rollin' off the [A]likes of [E]him
[B]Lord be with 'em, they [A]ain't done [E]nothin'
[B]Please won't you leave 'em,
just a [A]little bit of [E]room to [F#]swim
(nothing) B
Pray for the fish
Tag:
He said [E]everybody cross your fingers
and fold your [F#]hands
P[E]ray for ole Eddy, but before we say A[F#]men,
Chorus:
Pray for the [B]fish[A] [E] [B] [A] [E]
[B]Lord be with 'em they [A]ain't done [E]nothin'
[B]Please won't you leave 'em
just a [A]little bit of [E]room to [F#]swim
(nothing) B A E B
Pray for the fish
[A]Lord, Pray [E]for the [B]fish[A] [E] [B] [A]
