Back to the Street  Petra

Words and music by Bob Hartman
1986 Dawn Treader Music/Petsong Publishing (SESAC)
Intro: Bm7 Gmaj7
It?s so [Bm7]easy to lose the burden??[Gmaj7]take our eyes of the fields
[Bm7]Settle into apathy and for[Gmaj7]get what the harvest yields
It?s so [C#m7]easy to think we?re fini[(C#m7)]shed with our labor for awhile
(C#m7) N.C.
Kick back and let somebody else go the extra mile
Au* Cu Dm Bb F/C Dm C F C Dm
Jesus said go??into all the world, make disciples of all men
[Au]We got[Cu]ta [Dm]go?[Bb]?to [F]the high[C]ways, com[F]pel them to[G] come in[A]
CHORUS
As [D]long as there?s[A] a tear[Bm]ful eye[G] that [D]cries alone[A] at night[Bm]
As [D]long as there?s[A] a wear[Bm]y soul[G] ready to [G/F#]end the fight[A]
As [G]long as there?[G/F#]s an ach[A]ing heart that [Em7]still has streng[D/F#]th to beat[G]
[D]We gotta take[A] this mes[Bm]sage[G]
[F]Back [C]to the street[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C]
[F]We gotta take[C] this mes[Dm]sage[Bb] [F]
Back [C]to the [Dm]street
It?s so [Bm]easy to stay untangled with [Gmaj7]everyone else?s life
[Bm]Don?t get involved with strangers??[Gmaj7]don?t get involved with strife
It?s so [Amaj7]easy to save your own life??resting on what you?ve done
But [(Amaj7)]Jesus would leave the ninety-nine??to try to save the one
It?s not [Amaj7]easy to beat the system??it?s not [(Amaj7)]easy to face the heat
A N.C. B A N.C. B
But somebody?s got to take this message
[G]Back [A]to the street[Bm]
As [D]long as there?s[A] a tear[Bm]ful eye[G] that [D]cries alone[A] at night[Bm]
As [D]long as there?s[A] a wear[Bm]y soul[G] ready to [G/F#]end the fight[A]
As [G]long as there?[G/F#]s an ach[A]ing heart that [Em7]still has streng[D/F#]th to beat[G]
[D]We gotta take[A] this mes[Bm]sage[G]
[F]Back [C]to the street[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C]
[F]We gotta take[C] this mes[Dm]sage[Bb] [F]
Back [C]to the [Dm]street
