4/4 time; I play with the capo at the first fret, so it'll be in the right
key. So if you want it to be in the correct key (Ab), either do that or
don't use a capo and play all chords 1/2 step up from how they are written
G D/F# |C(add D) |G Bm7 |C (add D) D7 |
[G]I was walkin' [D/F#]home from school
[Em7]on a [C] [(add] [D)] cold winter day,
[G]took a short cut [Em7]through the [C] [(add] [D)]woods
and I [D]lost my way.
[G]It was gettin' [D/F#]late, [Em7]and I was [C] [(add] [D)]scared and alone.
[G]Then a kind old [Fm7]man took my [C (add D)band, and led D]me home.
but [C] [(add] [D)]he was standing [D7]there,
and [C] [(add] [D)]I knew in my [G/B]heart
he was the [C] [(add] [D)]answer to my [D7]prayer.
Oh, [G] [add] [A]I be-[Em7]lieve there are [Am7]Angels A-[D7]mong Us,
[G] [add] [A]sent down [Em7]to us from [C] [add] [D]somewhere up above.
[D7]They come to [G] [add] [A]you and [Em7]me in [C]our darkest hours[D7]
to [C] [add] [D]show us how to [Bm7]live
to [C] [add] [D]teach us how to [D7] give
to [C] [add] [D]guide us with a [D7]light of [G]love.
G Bm7 |C add D D7 |
When life held troubled times
and had me down on my knees
there's always been someone
to come along and comfort me
a kind word from a stranger
to lend a helping hand
a phone call from a friend
just to say I understand
Now ain't it kind of funny
at the dark end of the road
someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.
[C] [add] [D]They wear so [Bm7]many faces,
[C] [add] [D]show up in the [Bm7]strangest places
and [C] [add] [D]grace us with their [Bm7]mercies [Am7]in our time of [D7]need.
then repeat, "to guide us with a light of love"
G |C |D7 |G
