UNANSWERED PRAYERS
Performed by Garth Brooks
Composed by Pat Alger, Larry Bastian, Garth Brooks
From "No Fences"

D			  G
Just the other night at a hometown football game
  D		       Em7	          A
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
   G         F#m	     Bm	               G
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
     Em	        D            G		        A
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

D		       G
She was the one that I wanted for all times
   D	                       Em7		  A
And each night I spent praying God would make her mine
   G		 F#m	       Bm	            G
And if He'd only grant me this wish I'd wished back then
   Em		   D	    G   A
I'd never ask for anything again

CHORUS
                 D       G          Em     A
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
 D                  Bm             Em     A
Remember when you're talking to the man upstairs
          D                D7             G             E7
And just because He doesn't answer doesn't mean He don't care (last time CODA)
       D              Bm7 Em7     A        D
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

D				    G
She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
D			                  Em7   	  A
I could tell that time had changed me, in her eyes too it seemed
           G              F#m                   Bm
We tried to talk about the old days there wasn't much we
	G
could recall
           Em                   D           G   A
I guess the Lord knows what he's doing after all

   G                        F#m          Bm
And as she walked away and I looked at my wife and
        Em                  D                 G           A
Then and there I thanked the good Lord for the gifts in my life CHORUS

CODA
       D              Bm7 Em7     A
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered
       D              Bm7               Em7    A7
Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered
       D              Bm7 Em7     A        D
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

Yeah these are chords, not tabs... Chords aren't helping me at the moment.
