INTRO:    D   G/F#   G  Asus4  A

D                G/F#         G 
Just the other night and a hometown football game    
     D     A      Bm   Em                 A 
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame     
G         F#m            Bm        A        G   F#m
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
       Em                G/F#          G                 Asus4 A 
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

  
D            G/F#             G 
She was the one that I'd wanted for all times     
       D         A         Bm           Em                  A     
A And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
     G            F#m           Bm      A          G  F#m
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
     Em            G/F#         Asus4    A
A I'd never ask for anything again

  
CHORUS:
                  D G/F#   G             A 
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers     
D         A          Bm             Em       A 
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
             D                F#m            G             Ab(dim) 
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
         D             G/F#  G      A       D      G/F#  G  Asus4 A
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

  
      D              G/F#         G 
She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
             D         A       Bm           Em                 A 
And I could tell that time had changed me  In her eyes too it seemed 
             G             F#m                   Bm      A        G   F#m
We tried to talk about the old days There wasn't much we could recall
       Em                G/F#                 Asus4   A 
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all
    G                    F#m          Bm 
And as she walked away I looked at my wife
              Em                  F#m 
And then and there I thanked the good Lord
         G           Asus    A 
For the gifts in my life  


CHORUS:
                  D G/F#   G             A 
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
D         A          Bm             Em       A 
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
             D                F#m            G             Ad(dim) 
That just because he may not answer doesn't mean he don't care
         D             G/F#  G      A            
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered...
         D             G/F#  G                    A                    
Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
         D             G/F#  G      A       D      G/F#  G  Asus4 A D
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

No correction, just wanted to say this is the best version of
Unanswered Prayers on the web, great job!!

-stinky | 9/26/2002
Im not really sure on all the fingering for some chords.
Maybe some decription could be posted? BigChas
-bigchas | 5/15/2003
could someone please list out how to play each chord, not
the obvious ones but like the G/F# etc...
-ackerjf | 5/27/2003
great job on this tab
-mac_powel_3day | 6/2/2003
SWEET Thanks alot!!!
-bigchas | 6/29/2003
When walking down from the D, try this chord
progression

D--------D/C#--D/B---D/A---
My wife and I ran into

D/C# - X4X232
D/B - X2X232
D/A - X00232

It's basically a walkdown from D to the next chord
-lmofle | 8/4/2003
Actually the G/F# is correct and all you do is wrap your thumb around
the guitar to get the 2nd fret on the 6th string.(thick one)

-laccrosesk8r | 3/15/2004
Instead of walking down, I like to walk it up.
D G/F# G G/A
-2- -2- -3- -3-
-3- -3- -3- -3-
-2- -0- -0- -2-
-0- -4- -x- -x-
-x- -x- -x- -x-
-x- -x- -x- -x-

I find this works well when you pick the D G/F# G G/A and then pluck
the other chords so they ring at the same time, finishing with
strumming around the Asus4 to give momentum into the chorus.

-b15uga | 3/23/2004
none the less, It is still a great tab. Good job yall.
-joeallagree | 11/23/2004
