"MY CRY"

(Tuning 1/2 step down in drop D)

(Simplified chording)

Verse 1
(Dsus2) I've been dabbling and gambling in (Bb/D) Babylon’s pits myself.

(Dsus2) Thinkin' that this sinkin' gut will (Bb/D) all let up when I feel well.
(Dsus2) I confess that I've been deaf; it's (Bb/D) taken death to look at life!
(Dsus2) And I see now the road I'm going down of (Bb/D) leavin' my crown on the ice!
(Dsus2) Oh my God, where have I gone wrong?
I'm (Bb/D) so far gone! How can I go on?
But you (Dsus2) said the secret's in my meekness,
It's (Bb/D) in my weakness that You become strong.

Interlude

Dsus2 Bb/D x2


Verse 2
(Dsus2) Now these questions You've been stressin' are (Bb/D) pressin' on my heart, my Love.
If dis(Dsus2)cipleship's why I exist, then (Bb/D) what is this that I've become?
(Dsus2) I've been too proud to use my mouth to (Bb/D) speak out loud against what is wrong.
(Dsus2) How can I make it unless I take it and (Bb/D) really break it, this hold that's gone on?


(Repeating riff over next section(all power chords): DFGDABb DFGDABbDFG Bb A x2

Your plan I see is in jeopardy. Can You count on me?
Or will You enact plan B.?
Can I stand strong, just me and my God,
Though looking strange and odd and still run free?
I see before me a gory war scene
God, restore me, make me clean!
This I vow: I won't go down
With the rest of the crowd. No! (C) I will scream;

Chorus
(D) This (F) is (D) my cry (G) (D) of com(Bb)mitment, (A)
(D) From who (F) they (D) might lab(G)el (D) just a (Bb) misfit, (A)
(D) I (F) hear (D) them say(G) (D) their Syst(Bb)em's it, (A)
(D) But I'll say (F) to (D) their face; (G) I (D) don't want a (Bb) part of it. (C)

Interlude

Dsus2 Bb/D Dsus F Dsus2 Bb/D x2

Bridge
(Dsus2) Now lookin' from new eyes
I (Bb/D) wanna see beyond this night,
Take a (Dsus2) look at my spiritual life
And (A) get it righ(Bb)t.
(Dsus2) I see it's to the death,
When (Bb/D) I make this commitment,

So (Dsus2) who will join my cry

And for(A)sake their (Bb) God-(C) damned (D) pride?

Chorus
(D) This (F)is (D)my cry(G) (D)of com(Bb)mitment, (A)
(D) To rev(F)ive (D)my "why"(G) (D)of e(Bb)xistence, (C)
(D) I (F) hear (D)them say(G) (D)their Syst(Bb)em's it, (A)
(D) But I'll say (F)to (D)their face; (G)I (D)don't want a (Bb)part of it. (C) Yeah....
Chorus
(D) This (F) is (D) my cry (G) (D) of com(Bb)mitment, (A) (My cry of commitment)
(D) From who (F) they (D) might lab(G)el (D) just a (Bb) misfit, (A)
(D) I (F) hear (D) them say (G) (D) their Syst(Bb)em's it, (A)
(D) But I'll say (F) to (D)their face; (G) I (D) don't want a (Bb) part of it. (C)
