Wings To Fly – John Boruff

Based on Psalm 55.

VERSE 1 x2

4p                    Em        A#  A#
Listen to my prayer, O God
4p    Em   A#  A#
The wicked stare at me
4p    Em   A#  A#
In my thoughts I’m distraught
4p    Em   A#  A#
Their words revile me


Em             Em O Em   Em  Em
Fear and trembling have come
A#   A#    O A#        A#  A#
Oh, for the wings of a dove
Em         Em O Em   Em  Em
I would fly away
A#      A#  O    A#    A#  A#    pluck high strings
And have a better day

VERSE 2 x2

4p                    Em        A#  A#
Confuse the wicked, O Lord
4p                         Em   A#  A#
Confound their speech
4p    Em   A#  A#
Idolatrous, they are bored
4p    Em   A#  A#
Threats in the streets



Em      pluck         Em   pluck
Death takes them by surprise
A#    pm-pm    A#           4p
Going down alive into Hell
Em              pluck      Em   pluck
Took their eyes off of the skies
A#    pm-pm    A#        4p
They allowed evil to dwell


VERSE 1 x2
