Backslider's Prayer  Ty England

INTRO: G Am7 C G
He said [G]I know this ain't the time or place
But [Am7]Lord I need to talk
In a [C]business suit in a corner booth
In a [G]crowded little restaurant
[G]We all tried not to listen
We [Am7]all tried not to look
But a [C]whole room full of customers
And the [D]waitress and the cook
All [Em]stopped what we were [C]doing when he bowed his [G]head
In that [Em]silence we heard [C]every word he [D]said
CHORUS: I've been [G]trying to do things [C]my way
[D]Down here on life's [G]highway
[C]Slippin' slidin' [G]sideways
Between [D]no way and nowhere
If I could [G]only gain a [C]foothold
[D]Up there on your [Em]high road[D]
Lord [C]if you hear me [G]help me
I'll do [C]anything you [G]tell me to
[C]All I've got to [G]offer you is this
[D]Backslider's[(G)] prayer
INTRO
Well the [G]waitress made the first move
When she [Am7]filled his coffee cup
She said [C]you ain't alone here mister
You're [G]speaking for the rest of us
[G]I heard some scattered amens
And a [Am7]couple of I've been there's
Then [C]things got back to normal
The [D]dishes and the silverware
Were [Em]clanging in the [C]kitchen
Like an angel's [G]band
As I [Em]took my place in [C]line
To shake his [D]hand 'cause
CHORUS
SOLO: G C D G C G D D
If I could [G]only gain a [C]foothold
[D]Up there on your [Em]high road[D]
Lord [C]if you hear me [G]help me
I'll do [C]anything you [G]tell me to
[C]All I've got to [G]offer you is this
[D]Back[C]slider's [G]prayer
INTRO
