Fit for a King  Garth Brooks

(CAPO 1)
(INTRO) E5 Bm7
 ---X---------HIGH E
 ---X---------THIS IS A E5
 -- 0---------LOW E

Verse 1
His pu[E5]lpit's a corner on Nineteenth and Main
His g[A]rip on the Gospel his one claim to fame[E5].
He hurls fire and brimstone at the cars passing by
and he o[A]ffers sal---[E]vation for the S[B7]av-ior on h[E5]igh. [Bm7]
His kh[E5]akis are tattered and he ain't bathed in weeks
his b[A]out with the bot-tle shows up on his cheeks[E5].
He looks like a scare--crow a sight to be-hold
as he [A]works for the [E]Shep-herd bring-in' la[B7]mbs to the fold[E].
He po[Bm7]ints to the B[A]i ble he h[E]olds in his hands
says, " I'm [A]proof that the Good[E] Lord can [F#7]save an-y man."[A]
Son it [E]ain't what you're drivin'
or the cl[A]othes that you we[E]ar
material possessions won't mat[A]ter up the[B7]re.
 E A--HOLD NOTE---------

And some-day in heav-en when the angels all sing
these r[E]ags that I'm wear-in' will be [B7]fit for a king.[Bm7] [A] [E5] [Bm7]
Verse 2
He's fi[E5]ghtin' the fever in spite of the chill,
he pu[A]lls up his collar and he speaks God's will[E5].
His body is weakened but his faith is still strong,
for he's fi[A]lled with con--[E]viction for the m[B7]ission he's o[E5]n.
He k[Bm7]nows soon in heav[A]--en He'll be home-[E]-less no more,
As his w[A]ork will soon ec[E]ho from that f[F#7]ar distant sho[A]re.
Repeat chorus:
some-day in heav-en when the ang-els all sing...............................
Well, t[E]hese rags that I'm wear-in' will be f[B7]it for a kin[Bm7]g. [A] will be fit for a King[E5].
