                   D                    Bm
Verse 1 : She was born in Kansas City, raised in Arkansas
                   G                   D   A
          Fell in love with an Ex-Marine
                D                              Bm
          She already had three babies; he had one of his own
                       Em          D/F#       A ( A4_A )
          They came together for another and me
          G                            A
          Our family never shared the same last name
          G                    A
          But our family was a family the same, and they say
          D                     Bm
Refrain : Blood is thicker than water
                   Em      A           D   ( D4_D )
          Oh, but love is thicker than blood
          D                         Bm
Verse 2 : Wreck out on the highway, rain falling down
                    G                            D  A
          Lord, he must have fell asleep at the wheel
                     D                     Bm
          There's a number of people just standing around
                 Em                D/F#            A ( A4_A )
          Lord I can't condemn the fear that they feel
                   Bm       Bm/A             G
          For that river of red could be the death of me
          Em            D/F#                G      A
          God, give me strength and keep reminding me that
          D                     Bm
Refrain : Blood is thicker than water
                   Em      A           D
          Oh, but love is thicker than blood
                 G                      D
Bridge :  And if blood is thicker than water
                    C                      D
          Well then what are we fighthing for
          G                   F#m
          We're all sons and daughters
               G                          Gmaj7/E   A
          Of something that means so much more
             D                    Bm
Verse 3 : I see it on my TV but I can't understand
                    G                        D     A
          Lord it's one big contradiction to me
                       D                              Bm
          How in God's name we love thy neighbor with fists in our hands
                        Em            D/F#         A
          And kill each other when we just don't agree
          G                             A
          Why can't we see the walls we can't see through
          G                               A
          And see what God's been telling me and you, and that is
          D                     Bm
Refrain : Blood is thicker than water
                   Em7           A           ( D )
          Oh, but love, love is thicker than blood
