Intro (each | one measure of 4/4 |
Dm | Dm | C | C | Dm | F | C | C |

Verse 1
C                                Dm
I can hear the neighbors, the're arguing again
F
the're hasn't been peace on our street since
C
who knows when
C                                 Dm
I don't mean to listen in but the shouting is so loud
F                      C
I turn up the radio to drown it out

Dm             Em7   F              G
and silently I say a little prayer

Chorus
            Dm
but for the grace of God go I
               C
I must of been born a lucky guy
            Dm                  F
heaven only knows how I've been blessed
                      C
with the gift of your love
       Dm
I look around and all I see
        C
is your happiness embracing me
               Dm
oh lord I'd be lost
F                    C
but for the grace of God

Verse 2
C
I can see that old man
     Dm
he's walking past our door
F
I've been told that he's rich
       C
but he seems so poor
C
'cause no one comes to call on him
        Dm
and his phone it never rings
F
he wonders through his empty home
C
surrounded by his things

Dm             Em7   F                    G
and silently I say a little prayer (yes I do)

Repeat Chorus

but for the grace of God

but for the grace of God
