Teen for God  Dar Williams


Tuning: standard
Capo 1st fret
The [G]sun burns down, leaving God's bright stamp
On [Em]Peach Branch Horse and Bible Camp
Where we're [C]splashing in the water
[G]Joined in song
[Am]Swimming with the Spirit the [F]whole day long
I'm a teen for God[G]
God is [C]watching [Am]- teen for God[G]
God is [C]watching [Am]- teen for God[G]
The [G]girls have looks and the girls have rules
They [Em]came here from their Bible schools
They can [C]make you pay attention
To the [G]way you dress and eat
[Am]Make you trip over your [D]own two [Dsus4]feet and they
[G]Kneel down on their towels at night
Their [Em]nightgowns glow with a Holy light
And we [C]pray for the sinners
And their [G]drunken car wrecks
And [Am]vow that I'll never get [F]high and have sex
I'm a teen for God[G]
God is [C]watching [Am]- teen for God[G]
God is [C]watching [Am]- teen for God[G]
And [Bm]God made every leaf on every [C]tree
Each [Bm]grain of sand, God has a plan
For [C]what we're [Am]meant to [F]be
I gotta wait for God[G]
Dear Lord I plan each day
The things I will not do or say
But I'm driven by a passion
Is it only there to tame?
It fills my heart and it calls my name and
This world that you made for us
I know, I know, is dangerous
So I ride a lot of horses
And I never even swear
Sorta like praying I'm just not there
Oh God
God is watching - oh God
God is watching
But God made love
God made the rivers run
And cowboy boots and bathing suits
And the boy's skin dries in the sun...
You gotta help me, God
Help me know, four years from now
I won't believe in you anyhow
And I'll mope around the campus
And I'll feel betrayed
All those guilty summers I stayed
But then I'll laugh
That I fell for the lure
Of the pain of desire to feel so pure
And I'll bear all the burdens
Of my little daily crimes
Wish I had a God for such cynical times
Far from today
[C]But for [G]now I'm a [C]sacred [G]vessel
[C]Rip me [G]open - I [C]spread your [G]word
Like a [C]milkweed [G]pod, I'm a [C]radio [G]station
Your [C]Holy trans[G]mission
[C]Even [G]more, like a [C]lightning [G]rod
I'm a [C]lightning [G]rod - a [C]teen for [G]God
God is [C]watching [Am]- teen for God[G]
God is [C]watching [Am]- teen for God[G]
