Three Nails And A Cross
By George Strait
CD: Here For A Good Time - 2011
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
9/11/2011


I'm not 100% convinced I have the right chord at the end of the 5th line in the 
chorus...and the 2nd to last line...



Capo 1

G  Em  G  Em

       G                               Em
He was sitting on the front porch of a half-way house
C                                G
Chainin' cigarettes and drinkin' coffee
G                   Em
I was walkin' by on my way home
C                            G
Stopped and said, hello, how are ya
   Em                                A7
He looked at me and said, I've seen better days
  C                                 D
I looked at him and said, there's a better way



Chorus:
                  G
Three nails and a cross
C     G
Equal forgiveness
G                    Em 
Just like you, I was lost
A7                         C          D
And that's hell to have to live with
Em                                       Bm
I've sat on the front porch where you're sittin' now
       G                          A7
I kept lookin' deep inside 'til I figured out
                  G     D        G         
Three nails and a cross equal forgiveness


She was sittin' on her bed crying crocodiles
Sixteen ain't a good age to be pregnant
And she thinks mom and dad won't love her anymore
Like the boy who swore he always would but doesn't
She turns and sees that Bible laying by her bed
And she crumbles to her knees as she bows her head


Chorus 2:
Three nails and a cross
Equal forgiveness
Lord help me 'cause I'm lost
And that's hell to have to live with
I need you more than ever now, without a doubt
I've made a big mistake, can you help me out
                  G     D        Em      Bm
Three nails and a cross equal forgiveness
                  G     D        G
Three nails and a cross equal forgiveness
