Capo 5 in D (G)] [standard-tuned six-string acoustic.


     Optionally, partial capo 5 drop-D or double-drop-D.  To do this,
capo three, then at the 5th fret add an up-side-down Kyser capo over
the bottom 5 strings (for drop-D) or a modified partial capo that
covers only the middle four strings (for double-drop-D).  Moderate
tempo in 3/4 time (the hidden track, take one, is in 4/4).  It's all
strumming and flat-picking with some palm-muting.

     The intro lick is based on the first line of the hymn "All Hail
the Power of Jesus' Name" to Oliver Holden's "Coronation" tune.  The
tab below is just the important notes, but you can hit the rest of the
strings as much as you want as long as you continue to fret the first
and second strings like a D chord.  If you're not drop-D, then muffle
the sixth string; if you are drop-D you can add that bass note on the
sixth string.

VERSE 1:  [D] [Em] [D] [Em] [D]
Yeah today I'm sick of all I am
Today is my setback
First I swear I love you
Then I stab you in the back

CHORUS:  [G] [Em] [D] [A7]
I wanna drink out of that fountain
On a hill called double cure
I wanna show you my allegiance Lord
Yes I wanna be a son of Yours

REPEAT INTRO LICK:
Yeah a son of Yours

VERSE 2:  [D] [Em] [D] [Em] [D]
So tired of all my toys
They never last for long
They keep beaming dreams and wishes to
A big dish on my front lawn

REPEAT CHORUS:  [G] [Em] [D] [A7]
I wanna drink out of that fountain
On a hill called double cure
I wanna show You my allegiance Lord
Yes I wanna be a son of Yours

REPEAT INTRO LICK:
Yeah a son of Yours

VERSE 3:  [G] [Em] [D] [A7]
Bet you all have got a story
You're just aching to tell
Haven't we thrown our coinage
Down the wishing well
Oh

REPEAT INTRO LICK:

GUITAR SOLO:

VERSE 4:  [D] [Em] [D] [Em] [D]
So go call your neighbor
Proceed with all due haste
Go grab your wife and sweet family
See there is no time to waste

CHORUS:  [G] [Em] [D] [A7]
We're gonna drink out of that fountain
On a hill called double cure
I wanna show You my allegiance Lord
Yes I wanna be a son of Yours

VERSE 5:  [G] [Em] [D] [A7]
Ask me why I love Him
He gave riches to this poor
Yes and I will one day see that face
Over yonder shore

REPEAT INTRO LICK TWICE:
Over yonder shore
Over yonder shore
