Capo 1

Intro: | G | G | C | C | D | G | C | C |

G                       D                       C
Man on the TV's gone insane, everybody's just laughing
G                                              
People 'cross the world holding on 
            D                      Am
The earth caved in, the ocean came down crashing
G                                     D
My neighbor lost his house 'cause he can't find a job
C                                                          G
Don't you dare pledge allegiance, don't you dare speak of God
D               Am
Speak of God,   Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

          G 
Now I'm begging for forgiveness
    D                      C
I wanna make a difference even in the smallest way
      G                  D
I'm only one person, but I can feel it working
C
I believe in better days,
             G     D   C
That's why I p-r-a-y  Yeah

G                         D                          C     
Some stupid video posted as a joke, somebody's life gets ruined
G
Out of everything we can create
 D                             C
Where is the cure to keep the sick from losing
G                                   D
Babies having babies 'cause their parents are always gone
C                                                G
Somehow we have forgotten how to make a house a home
D                      Am                  C
How to make a house a home, Oh! Oh! Yeah! Yeah!

      G
I'm begging for forgiveness, 
    D                      C
I wanna make a difference even in the smallest way
     G                   D
I'm only one person, but I can feel it working
C
I believe in better days, 
             G     D    C                G     D   C
That's why I p-r-a-y, yeah, That's why I p-r-a-y, yeah

G                                    D
These demons from my past haunt me every night
             C
And I just can't get through it
       G                                           D
If I could forget them on my own, I'll let go and just move on
             C
But heaven knows I am only human

                 Em    D   C
And that's why I p-r-a-y, yeah yeah
             Em      D               C
That's why I pray, I pray, I pray, I pray

          G                D
Yes I'm begging for forgiveness (I'm begging for forgiveness)
        C
I just wanna make a difference (Just wanna make a difference)
    G          D                 C                  G
I believe (I believe) in better days, That's why I pray
