Jars Of Clay – Im Alright
Jars of Clay
I?m Alright
?If I Left the Zoo?
Written by Jars of Clay, tabbed by David Schroder

NOTES ABOUT SONG: This is an interesting song for Jars of Clay because
There?s not an awesome acoustic guitar part and the electric parts are
Subdued and scattered in the background. The one instrumental solo in the
Song is, surprisingly, played by Charlie on a Wurlitzer piano.

VERSE ONE:
            E                A             E
It was the fear of God that led me to you
     A                E             A        E
And it?s the fear of you that takes getting used
    to
      A         E               A           E    A
I?ve never been one to hang my heart on a thread
         E        A             E         A     D2
But you spun me around and you loved me instead

VERSE TWO:
               E             A          E
I knew I could turn to something other than you
                A     E
?Cause I don?t understand you and why you?re
      A    E
    after me
      A              E               A      E
I?ve never been the saint you wanted me to turn to
        A            E              A
And I can?t see the view from the eyes you look
       E            D2
    at me through, oh no

CHORUS
     E              D
I?m alright, I?m alright
     E              D
I?m alright, I?m alright
     E              D
I?m alright, I?m alright
     C#
I?m alright

VERSE THREE
                  E                    A
So cut below the surface and try hard not to
    E
   notice
        A            E               A       E
That I could be so foolish thinking I?m alright
             A      E                    A
I?ve got no one to hold me, I?ve got no one to
    E
   carry
      A        E                             D
Everything inside of me that I won?t let you see

CHORUS
