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.

I Repent
Words and music by
Derek Webb

-Intro-
C5    Gadd11    Am7  Gadd11  Fadd9

-Verse-
    C5      Gadd11         Am7    Gadd11        Fadd9
I repent, I repent for pursuing America’s dream
    C5      Gadd11             Am7    Gadd11       Fadd9
I repent, I repent for living like I deserve anything
   Fadd9       Gadd11
My house, my fence,
   C5          Fadd9
My kids and my wife
   Fadd9   Gadd11             C5       Fadd9
In our suburb where we’re safe and white
Fadd9  Gadd11      Fadd9      Gadd11
I am wrong and of these things
    C5    Gadd11    Am7  Gadd11  Fadd9
I repent

-Verse-
I repent, I repent of parading my liberty
I repent, I repent of paying for what I get for free
The way I believe that I am living right
By trading sins for others that are easier to hide
I am wrong and of these things
I repent

-Bridge-
    Dadd11                  A                   G
I repent of judging by a law that even I can’t keep
                Dadd11         A               G
Wearing righteousness like a disguise to see through

           Fadd9      Gadd11
The planks in my own eyes

-Verse-
I repent, I repent of trading truth for false unity
I repent, I repent of confusing peace and idolatry
Of caring more what they think
Than of what I know they need
And domesticating you until you look just like me
I am wrong and of these things I repent

Capo 4th fret
