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.

The main riff is easy, you start on that A2, slide up to B2, slide back to
A2, then just hammer off and on between the A and the A2 for fill. Listen to
the song and you'll get it quick.

A    D   A
If you want my glory, you've got to take my sin
   D    A
If you want my future, you've got to take my skin
   A7      D2
If you want my heart, you got to take my blood
   A7    A
If you want my pledge, you've got to take my lust

    D G     D
I'm not a half a man;
I'm not a half a man.
    D G     D
God knows I love you now;
A7      A
but a saint and a sinner is what I am.

If you want my spirit, you've got take my blues
If you want my mystery, you've got take my clues
If you want my child, you've got take my kin
If you want my money, you've got to take my rent


And it doesn't get better, once you've seen the light
    D    A
you wait and find, your fight has just begun
Used to be a damn mess but now I look just fine,
D    E
You dressed me up, we drank the finest wine

[play main riff through a few times]
