      D                          A
She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
     Bm                   A
On a snow white Christmas Eve
D                     A      
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy
         Bm              A 
With the baby in the backseat
      D                       A               Bm            A 
Fifty miles to go and she was running low, on faith and gasoline 
            G
It'd been a long hard year 
          D                       A
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention 
        Bm            A
She was going way too fast
    D          A
And before she knew it she was spinning
     Bm                  A 
On a thin black sheet of glass
        D                      A
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
Bm                    A
She didn't even have time to cry
         G                        D
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air


               A
Jesus take the wheel
                E
Take it from my hands
                      Bm      D 
Cause I can't do this on  my  own 
            A
I'm letting go
                    E
So give me one more chance
                  Bm       D
Save me from this road I'm on
               D     A  Bm  A  D  A  G
Jesus take the wheel
 

         D                           A
It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
        Bm            A
And the car came to a stop
      D                     A 
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Bm              A
Sleeping like a rock
             D               A
And for the first time in a long time
    Bm                A
She bowed her head to pray
             G                  D
She said I'm sorry for the way, I've been living my life
  G                                D
I know I've got to change, so from now on tonight


               A
Jesus take the wheel
                E
Take it from my hands
                      Bm    D
Cause I can't do this on my own
            A
I'm letting go
                      E
Just give me one more chance
                  Bm       D
Save me from this road I'm on
                  A     E  Bm  D 
Oh Jesus take the wheel 
                A
Ohh I'm letting go
                     E
So give me one more chance
                  Bm       D 
Save me from this road I'm on
               Bm       D 
Just from this road I'm on
               A    Bm
Jesus take the wheel
A            D            A
Oh, take it, take it from me
Bm  A      Bm -  A  
Oh  whaaaa ooooh...

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
