VERSE:
[A]If you should meet some lonely [(G)]soul who on this [D]earth can't reach his [A]goal
And he's traveling down a road so dark and [E]dim (dark and dim)
Lend a [A]hand say a p[(G)]rayer give a [D]smile that he might [A]share
But for the grace of God it could be [E]you instead of [A]him
([A]But for the grace of God it could be [E]you instead of [A]him)
VERSE:
Befriend each stranger in the night help to make his burdens light
Lift up the fallen ones and be a friend (be a friend)
Shed a tear share a sigh share his fears don't pass him by
But for the grace of God it could be you instead of him
([A]It could be [E]you instead of [A]him)
TAG:
Shed a tear share a sigh share his fears don't pass him by
But for the grace of God it could be you instead of him
(It could be you instead of him)
*The G chords in parenthesis are not played
in the recording, but I think they sound good.
