The C/B is part of a walkdown from C to Am

C/B Ė X2X010

G    Bm       Am              C    
Superstitious mindís haunting me
       D           C          G 
I know prayers and wishes are two different things
      G           Bm        Am
Iím a God-fearing man but I do believe
D                           C                 G
Wish for what you want, but pray for what you need
        C                         D                     C   C/B  Am       G    
And the confusion of the issue is I know not whether to pray or  wish for you
     C   C/B Am       G
Yeah pray or wish for you

G        Bm              Am           G       
Eleven, eleven reads the clock on the dash
  G            Bm   Am       G
I make a small wish under my breath
         G       Bm            Am         G
You know I canít tell it or it wonít come true
    C                       D
who knows it could be about you
     C    D                G 
Or a star falling from the midnight sky
C                 D
make another wish as the light dies
   G      Bm           Am           G 
Or find a penny on the ground heads up
      C       C/B       Am        G
maybe all day long Iíll have good luck
C           C/B         Am   G
These ainít nothing but wishes


Steel solo

A man stands in his field praying for rain
Thatís the only thing that will ease his familyís pain
Or a woman kneeling beside her loved oneís bed
Praying the outcome is not what she dreads
Or a man and his congregation might mention peace
In their hearts he makes them believe 
Careful what you wish for careful what you pray
It may or may not come true some day
Nothing but prayers
