Tuned down step

[A]A [E]G#[D]ru[A]n F#M B E
[A] I been walking too [E]long [D] two long [A]years
[A] Shake my[G#run] head and [F#M] wonder why I
[B,] cried those[E] tears
The[A] soles of my [D] feet are[A] burning Lord,
And my [D]eyes they cannot see,[D*] [A]won't you tell me why it[E]is
That these truths[G] terrify[D] me yes they [C]terrify[A] me
Take me [A] down to the[E]river [D]down to the river [A]bend
Sweet Lord got to [E]walk beside me,[D] hold my hand
[A] Down to the[E] river[D] down to the river[A] low
Sweet Lord got to[E] hold me under
[D]Save my[A] soul yes you gotta[C] save my[D7]soul
You gotta [C]save my [A] soul now [C] save my [D7]soul
Yes you got to[C] save my[A] soul now
[A]Spend most of my [E]life [D]confused and in[A]pain
Things I[G#run] cannot[F#m]even begin [B,]to[E]explain
It'll take[A] more than a[D] glass of cool[A]water to[D] douse this flame[D*]
Yes with my[A]keys and my cup and my[E]eyes turned up to[G] heaven
I'm Just a beggar in the [D]rain yes a[C] beggar in the[A] rain now
[A] Down to the[E] river [D]down to the river[A] bend
Sweet Lord got to[E] walk beside me[D] hold my hand
[A]Down to the[E] river[D]down to the river[A] low
Sweet Lord gotta[E] hold me under
[D]Save my[A] soul, [C]save my[D7] soul, [C]save my[A]soul,
You gotta[C] save my[D7] soul, [C]save[A] save me[C] [D7]
Oh, [C]save my[A] soul, save my[C] soul[D7] Oh [C] [A]yeah
[A] [E] [D] Aaaahhhhh [A]yeah [E]yeah [D,A string run] [A]
*The same rythym continues, I just decided to tab it kinda where the chords are,
relative to his singin...
[G#run]- just the bass note (4th fret) to get from A to F#m
[D*]- just a pinky addy offy thingy, like the intro
[D, a string run] very ending part doo doo da doo(A)
ur pinky plays the 4th fret A sting, then ur pointer plays the 2nd fret A string,
then song ends on A
I'm still unsure about the save my soul part...d7? think the c - a part is right....
