Backslider's Prayer Recorded by Ty England Written by Bob Regan and Mark D. Sanders
G Am A7 He said I know this ain't the time or place but Lord I need to talk C G In a business suit in a corner booth in a crowded little restaurant A7 We all tried not to listen we all tried not to look C D7 But a whole room full of customers and the waitress and the cook Em C G All stopped what we were doin' when he bowed his head Em C D7 In that silence we heard every word he said
G C D7 G I've been tryin' to do things my way down here on life's highway C G D7 Slippin' slidin' sideways tween no way and nowhere G C D7 Em If I could only gain a foothold up there on your high road D7 C G C G Lord if you hear me help me I'll do anything you tell me to C G D7 G All I've got to offer you is this backslider's prayer
Am A7 Well the waitress made the first move when she filled his coffee cup C G She said you ain't alone here mister you're speakin' for the rest of us A7 I heard some scattered amens and a couple of I've been there's C D7 Then things got back to normal the dishes and the silverware Em C G Were clangin' in the kitchen like an angel's band Em C D7 As I took my place in line to shake his hand
repeat #2 Cause I've been
D7 G C D7 Em If I could only gain a foothold up there on your high road D7 C G C G Lord if you hear me help me I'll do anything you tell me to C G D7 G All I've got to offer you is this backslider's prayer
