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.

Derek Webb - Mockingbird
Transcribed by John Huss

A2   A    A2      A
Poverty
      Em      Em6   Em  Em6
Is so hard to see
                  B7                              F
When it's only on your tv and twenty miles across town
                A2        A
Where we’re all living so good
A2               A             Em   Em6
   That we moved out of Jesus’ neighborhood
Em      Em6                 Dmaj9   D2
  Where he's hungry and not feeling so good
Dmaj9                    E   Esus  E
  From going through our trash


         Dmaj9     D2   Dmaj9         D2
He says, more than just your cash and coin
  B7
I want your time, I want your voice
  Bm7b5
I want the things you just can't give me


So what must we do
Here in the west we want to follow you
We speak the language and we keep all the rules
Even a few we made up
Come on and follow me
But sell your house, sell your SUV
Sell your stocks, sell your security
And give it to the poor


What is this, hey what's the deal
I don't sleep around and I don't steal
I want the things you just can't give me


        Dmaj9  D2            Dmaj9    D2
Because what   you do to the least of these
   B7
My brother's, you have done it to me
        Bm7b5
Cause I want the things you just can't give me
