[]INTRO .
[E]  [C#m]  [B]  A|e|

[E]      
No doubt the prayers of my mother
     [C#m]                     [B]
Have taken me aways down the line,
     [A]                        [E]
And I'd swear the life of my sister,
           [B]                 [A]               [B]
Well she's brighter than the sun when she shines.-.
    [E]            |e|
And I have been baptised in water,
[C#m]                       [B]
I have been baptised in fire
          [A]                            [E]
And I've knelt with both hands on the altar
     [B]         [A]            [E]
And I've even sang in the choir.
               [C#m]                     [A]            [E]
There've been forks in the road when I've had to choose...
   [B]                         [A]           [B]          [E]
I pray He'll forgive me for singin' the backslider blues.

             [A]                       [E]
- Yeah the backslider blues ain't a hard song to sing.
     [C#m]               [A]              [A]          [B]
You know right from wrong, you just don't do a thing.
 [A]                            [E]        
Stand there alone, feelin' battered and bruised,
 [C#m]           [B]         [A]
Singin' the backslider blues. -

[E]  [C#m]  [B]  [A]

            [E]          
From the stained glass light of the chapel,
        [C#m]              [B]
To the neon haze of the bar.
          [A]             [E]
From the wine of holy communion, 
       [C#m]             [A]             [B]
To the liqour that's left me the scars.
          [E]            |e|   
From the Bible that sets on my dresser, 
         [C#m]                            [B]
To the clothes strung all 'cross the floor.
            [A]                                [E]
From the prayers from my friends when they need me,
         [A]              [B]           [E]
To the times that I've ran out the door.
      [C#m]                        [A]          [E]
Been taken by surprise by some women and rouge,
       [B]                          [A]           [B]         [E]
And I pray He'll forgive me for singin' the backslider blues.

[A]   [E]   [C#m]   [B]   [A]   [E]   [C#m]   [B]   [A]

    [E]       
And I hope that we can all make it
        [C#m]                        [B]
To the place where true freedom rings
       [A]                            [E]
And I pray that they have us some guitars
                                         [B]
So we can walk through the red buds and sing.
        [E]       
Never know when you're out on life's highway,
 [C#m]                       [B]
Gabriel might pull up to you.
            [A]                         [E]
He'll say "Child, climb in and ride shotgun
           [B]             [A]          [E]
And we'll see what this big rig can do".
             [C#m]                       [A]              [E]
There'll be nothin' more to say and nothin' left to lose.
 [B]                        [A]             [B]         [E]
He'll have forgotten when we sang the backslider blues.

             [A]                       [E]
- Yeah the backslider blues ain't a hard song to sing.
     [C#m]                             [E]          [B]
You know right from wrong, you just don't do a thing.
 [A]                            [C#m]        
Stand there alone, feelin' battered and bruised,
[A]          [B]         [E]                [A]            [B]        [E]
Singin' the backslider blues. I'm just singin' the backslider blues.

[E]  [C#m]  [B]  [E]

I don't think this is correct. It's out of key if you play along with the song.

Ok To Re-Iterate.

Jason sings with a Falsetto Voice on this particular song.
His voice is actually much deeper.
You gotta watch those chords and play them according to the song.

I have seen Jason play this song and the chords are correct.
