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.

Intro:

C2-C,C,C2-C,Fmaj4 x2

Verse 1:
          C              Fmaj4             C     C2  C
There are days I don’t believe the words I say
       F                 C
Like a life that I’m not living
  F                 C              G   G6-G7
A song that I’m not singing but to you

Verse 2:
          C              Fmaj4          C     C2  C
There are times that I believe I’m satisfied
        F           C
Like an intimate connection
  F                 C           G   G6-G7
Despite this bad reception with you

Pre-chorus:
        Am              D
Cause I can’t afford to pay
    Am             D
For most of what I say
   Am     C/B   C
So it’s a lucky thing
         F                E
That the truth’s public domain

Chorus:
    Am          E
And I am like a mockingbird
         F              C
I’ve got no new song to sing
    Am           E
And I am like an amplifier
       F                  G
I just tell you what I’ve heard
        Fmaj4         C
Oh, I’m like a mockingbird

Verse 3:
    Fmaj4     C           Fmaj4               C   C2  C
And yes, it’s true that I need this more than you
     F                 C
Like one whose name is many
     F                   C        G  G6-G7
Have mercy, please don’t send me away

Pre-chorus 2:
    Am            D
And I’ll do all I can
   Am          D
To be a better man
   Am        C/B      C
Oh I’ll clean up this act
       F             E
And be worse than we started


Chorus

Bridge:

Em     (Em#7-Em)x4 hammer on

Em   B7    C    G  D

Em   B7    C    D


Chorus


Outro:

         I'm like a mockingbird (x2)

C   C2-C   Fmaj4  C
