Intro
F#

Verse 1
                                    Bsus2              B
We don't have much here, but you're welcome to it all
    C#                B                 F#
The preacher told the stranger at the door
                                     Bsus2           B
Come sit down by this fire - let the coffee warm you up
        C#               B                   F#
I can't say I've seen it rain this hard be - fore
             D#m              C#            B
The stranger said “I saw your sign as I was walking down the road”
       D#m            C#                  B               C#
“And I figured that a church might be the safest place to go”

Chorus
           F#                               C#
Well, son, crosses sure get heavy and we've all got one to bear
              D#m           C#               B
And if you're looking for a shelter from the storm

You'll find one here
     F#                             C#            Bb
They sat and talked for hours there in that empty church
      D#m               C#
About how life's unfair sometimes
B                       F#/A#   G#m    C#               Csus  C
Trying to make sense of how God works.     The preacher said 

Verse 2
   F#                                  Bsus2       B
“I lost my son one summer - and he was only twenty five
        C#                  B               F#
A drunk driver crossed that double yellow line
                                  Bsus2        B
And I prayed so hard to Jesus, to save my only son
         C#             B                F#
It seems all I do these days is question why
      D#m              C#                    B
Now I stand here every Sunday, and preach to everybody else
             D#m             C#                    B          C#
And I talk a lot about for - giveness, but I can't do it my - self”

Chorus
     F#                               C#
Son, crosses sure get heavy and we've all got one to bear
             D#m             C#               B
I don't know why I'm telling you all this, or if you even care
     F#                             C#            Bb
They sat and talked for hours there in that empty church
      D#m               C#
About how life's unfair sometimes
B                       F#/A#   G#m    C#  C#sus  C#
Trying to make sense of how God works

Verse 3
      F#                                  Bsus2                     B
Tears filled the stranger’s eyes he said “I know I've changed a lot.”
  C#                B              F#    F#sus
I might be hard for you to recog – nize
F#                            Bsus2           B
But late one summer night I'd had too much to drink
           C#                 B                   F#     Fsus
I got be - hind the wheel and changed both of our lives
         D#m               C#
And 'I'm sorry' just ain't good enough
         B
When you hurt someone like that
    D#m             C#                B                 C#
And if I could, God knows I'd give my life to bring him back"

Chorus
          F#                               C#
Preacher, crosses sure get heavy and we've all got one to bear
        D#m               C#       B
And I'm here to ask for - giveness if you even care
     F#                             C#            Bb
They sat and talked for hours there in that empty church
      D#m               C#
About how life's unfair sometimes
B                       F#/A#   G#m    C#  C#sus  C#  F#
Trying to make sense of how God works




This is my version of the song and is what I hear. I am not including the chords with this one,
since it is assumed the musician playing this song is familiar with barre chords and how to
use them. This song is also played fingerstyle. I recommend searching for the video on YouTube
and listening to it a couple of times. This will give you an idea how the song is played.
