Joseph Arthur - I used to know how to walk on water 

(standard tuning) 

(verse 1) 

Em                                    
I used to know how to walk on water 
Am                         
I used to be so unafraid 
Bm                                
I could save the weakest tyrant 
Em 
And I could knight the proudest slave 
Em 
I could give riches to beggars 
Am 
And give love to the one who hates 
Bm 
I could tempt a heart so frozen 
Em 
And I could torture the strength of fate 

(verse 2) 

Em 
I used to know how to walk on water 
Am 
The king of kings they knew me well 
Bm 
I could give sight to blind men 
Em 
And make a mute man sing in hell 
Em 
But now I watch with awe and wonder 
Am 
Doubt has now befallen me 
Bm 
I ask The Lord to show me mercy 
Em 
And to give me sympathy 

G D Forgive me now my useless thunder Am G When I was such a dynamo D I am here and I am humble Am G For I know not which way to go
(verse 3) Em I used to know how to walk on water Am I could give the dead hot life Bm I could murder the joy of Satan Em And make his mistress be my wife Em I will be the dream of cowards Am And they will never resemble me Bm I could see them doubt me under Em As I set each one free Em Now I just sit and wonder what Am illness has befallen me Bm This sick of mine make me surrender to Em this world of vacancy
G D Forgive me now my useless thunder Am G When I was such a dynamo D I am here and I am humble Am G For I know not which way to go
(verse 4) Em I used to know how to walk on water Am Now I sink in the dirt Bm No kind of holy laughter Em Seems to reach beyond the hurt Em I used to know how to walk on water Am I used to be at peace with love Bm All it's strength and all it's power Em Would lift me up so high above Em Burning star of holy wonder Am Women would rush to be with me Bm But now I'm lost inside the thunder of Em pain which holds insanity
G D Forgive me now my useless thunder Am G When I was such a dynamo D I am here and I am humble Am G For I know not which way to go G D Forgive me now my useless thunder Am G When I was such a dynamo D I am here and I am humble Am G For I know not which way to go
(the song fades with the Chorus sung in a slightly different way, but with the ffffffffffffsame chords and rhythm, you can jam on that)
