All I Need (Did Not Catch Her Name) by "Caedmon's Call"

Capo = 5th fret

G                  C
did not catch her name,
                   D
did not catch her tears.
                  Em
it hit me like a train
                      G
when her story hit my ears.
                 C
mother of eight sons,
                D
father off to war,
                Em
got no home address
                         D
just bricks on a dirt floor.
            C               G
she said, "Jesus is all I need."

              C
tiny plot of land,
                   D
corn stored up in piles.
                  Em
years it doesn't rain...
                              G
they just stay hungry for a while.
                   C
no fatted calf to kill,
                             D
she made a feast of cuy and corn.
                            Em
she said, "who else knew my name
                           G
before the day that i was born?
  C              G
Jesus is all i need
 Am7     C      G
Jesus is all i need."

                        C
she bragged about her boys
                          D
how they're growin' into men,
                                Em
how they learned to praise the Lord,
                  G
old style ecuadorian.
                    C
to buy the new guitar
                      D
she had to sell the swine.
                        Em                        G
said, "my boys go to school on a foreign angel's dime.

D                     G
this world calls me poor,
           D                G
i bore my babies on this floor.
D              G
He always provides
             C
sure as the sun will rise.
         A                  Em
so i'll sing Him songs of praise
          A                          C
'cause i know He'll keep me in His gaze."

G      A    Em
A    Em    A

                      C
rain poured from the sky,
                      D
we raced back to the van.
                         Em
there were tears in the eyes
                         G
of this poor, forgetful man.
                 C
mother of eight sons,
                        D
she knows the peace of God.
                         Em
Lord, help me learn to lean
                      G
on Thy staff and Thy rod.
C                G
Jesus is all I need,
Am7       C     G
Jesus is all I need.
