This transcription is not my own work; it was contributed to the site by another Caedmon's Call fan.

I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me. I haven't reviewed or editted them, so no guarantees about accuracy, but I'm sure people will find them useful. If you have transcribed a Caedmon's Call or derek webb song that's not already on this site, please feel free to send it in to be shared here.

  Verse 1 (Intro Riff)
The grass looked greener on the other side
So I tried to, snatch myself from your hand
Caught a boat to anywhere but Nineveh
And, well, you know, I got spit back on dry land.

Bridge (Strumming)
D  A  G       D  A  G
   Ooooh.....Ooooh....

Verse 2 (Intro Riff)
Give me purity and give me continence
But oh no, not yet
Like a coin hiding in the corner
Trying not to be swept
I was trying not to be swept.

Pre-Chorus
A
 Kicking against these goads
 G                        D D
 Sure did cut up my feet
A
 And didn't your hands get bloody
       G
As you washed them clean
D
And you washed them clean.

 And all these roads that lead me to roam, Bring me back home.

Verse 3 (Intro riff)
So you have yourself your ninety nine (ninety nine)
Isn't that enough for you
Still you followed me to the shadowed valley
Carried me on your shoulders too.

Pre-Chorus
A                      G       D D
 I've done the work of Sisyphus
A                                G          D
 Thinking that I could get over this hill
A                        G            D D
 But the one thing I can't get over now...(is the)
A                     G     D(Fill 1)
 Is the force of your will.

Chorus
