This transcription is not my own work; it was contributed to the site by another derek webb 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.

E -X-X-X---2----3-x

There are lots of little hits/pulls on the B string during the Am, C, & F chords
in the intro and verses- add to taste. During the "solo" Derek plays the same
verse progression only adding a few more fun fills on the B and high E strings
on the 3rd & 1st fret- Chorus:

I'm unsure of the 3rd chord in the 2nd line of the chorus, I can't figure if
it's a funny G or a C that has the low E on 2 like the Am/F# before it, or what.
I'm open to suggestions.

C                               F
Beloved, these are dangerous times
                 C                              F
Cause you are weightless, like a leaf from the vine
         Am                           F
And the wind has, blown you all over town
                  Am                           F
‘Cause there is nothing, holding you to the ground

         Em               Am
And now you, would rather be
    G                      C
A slave again than free
From the law...

Am        Am/F#    G
Beloved, listen to me
Am            Am/G         Am/F#
Don’t believe all that you see
Am                        Am/G                    Am/F#                    F
Don’t you ever let anyone tell you that, there’s anything that you need...
But me

Beloved, these are perilous days
When your culture, is so set in it's ways
And it will listen, to salesmen and theives
Preaching other, than the truth you’ve received

'Cause they, are telling lies
For they can not cirucumsize
Your hearts...



C                                     F
Beloved, there is nothing more
                 C                                               F
No more blessings, and there are no more rewards
                 Am                                F
Than the treasure, of my body and blood
           Am                                  D
Given freely to all daughters and sons
Am                           D
To all daughters and sons
Am                            D
All my daughters and sons
Am                           D
To all daughters and sons
