I'm Alright  Jars of Clay

I?m Alright
?If I Left the Zoo?
Written by Jars of Clay, tabbed by David Schroder
NOTES ABOUT SONG: This is an interesting song for Jars of Clay because
there?s not an awesome acoustic guitar part and the electric parts are
subdued and scattered in the background. The one instrumental solo in the
song is, surprisingly, played by Charlie on a Wurlitzer piano.
It was the f[E]ear of God that l[A]ed me to you[E]
And i[A]t?s the fear of y[E]ou that takes [A]getting u[E]sed
I?ve n[A]ever been [E]one to hang my h[A]eart on a th[E]read[A]
But you s[E]pun me ar[A]ound and you l[E]oved me in[A]stead[D2]
I knew I could [E]turn to someth[A]ing other t[E]han you
?Cause I don?t u[A]nderst[E]and you and why you?re
af[A]ter m[E]e
I?ve n[A]ever been the s[E]aint you wanted [A]me to t[E]urn to
And I ca[A]n?t see the v[E]iew from the ey[A]es you look
at [E]me through, o[D2]h no
I?m a[E]lright, I?m alr[D]ight
I?m a[E]lright, I?m alr[D]ight
I?m a[E]lright, I?m alr[D]ight
I?m a[C#]lright
So cut below the s[E]urface and try hard n[A]ot to
That I c[A]ould be so fo[E]olish thinking I[A]?m alrig[E]ht
I?ve got no o[A]ne to h[E]old me, I?ve got no o[A]ne to
Everyt[A]hing insi[E]de of me that I won?t let you [D]see
