INTRO .
A  F#m  E  D|e|

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

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

A  F#m  E  A

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

E   A   F#m   D   A   E   D   A   F#m   E   D

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

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

A  F#m  E  A
