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.

D                                                           G
they'll know us by the t-shirts that we wear
                                                                   C
they'll know us by the way we point and stare
                                                                D7
at anyone whose sin looks worse than ours
                                    C                                            G
who cannot hide the scars of this curse that we all bare

                                                               G
they’ll know us by our picket lines and signs
                                                               C
they’ll know us by the pride we hide behind
                                               D7
like anyone on earth is living right
                                          C
and isn’t that why Jesus died
                                            G
not to make us think we’re right

          Em     A     D
when love, love, love
            Em     D      C    D/B    A
is what we should be known for
  Em   A       D
love, love, love
             B7                      Em   Em/F
it’s the how and it’s the why
Em/F                                     Am  Am/G   D
we live and breathe and we die

                                                     G
they’ll know us by reasons we divide
                                                 C
and how we can’t seem to unify
                                                                      D7
because we’ve gotta sing songs a certain style
                                              C
or we’ll walk right down that aisle
                                         G
and just leave ‘em all behind

                                                                   G
they’ll know us by the billboards that we make
                                                              C
just turning God’s words to cheap clichés
                                                                     D7
says “what part of murder don’t you understand?”
                                       C
but we hate our fellow man
                                          G
and point a finger at his grave

                                                              G
they'll know us by the t-shirts that we wear
                                                                   C
they'll know us by the way we point and stare
                                                           D7
telling ‘em their sins are worse than ours
                                           C
thinking we can hide our scars
                                                   G
beneath these t-shirts that we wear
