G                    
Forgive me someone, for I have sinned
      Cadd9
And I know not where I should begin
     D
Some days it feels like you just can't win
   Am                     C
No matter what you do or say.


G
Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger
Cadd9 
Life is short but it feels much longer
       D 
You've lost that drive, you've lost that hunger
   Am                         C
To pull yourself through the day.

Chorus:
      G                             
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
C
Take me down to the English Channel
D
Throw me in where the water is shallow
         Am                 C
And then drag me on back to shore! 


     G            
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
   C 
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
D
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
  Am                     C
I can't ask for anything more


D
Come on everybody sing it 1, 2, 3, 4
G


G                      
We've all got secrets that we hold inside
    Cadd9
The worst little things that we try and defy
     D
The worst one of all that you never can hide
               Am                           C
Is that you're never quite as strong as you sound


G                      
So I'm sorry baby, for the times I've hurt you
Cadd9
Sorry friends, for the times I desert you
 D
Most days it feels like I don't deserve you
   Am                           C
No wonder that you're all still around

Chorus:
      G                             
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
C
Take me down to the English Channel
D
Throw me in where the water is shallow
         Am                 C
And then drag me on back to shore! 


     G            
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
   C 
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
D
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
  Am                     C
I can't ask for anything more


D
Come on everybody sing it 1, 2, 3, 4
G


                           D
Come on and join me in the water

Swim for hope
                       G  
Sometimes it's hard to remember
G
I couldn't do this on my own

Chorus:
      G                             
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
C
Take me down to the English Channel
D
Throw me in where the water is shallow
         Am                 C
And then drag me on back to shore! 


     G            
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
   C 
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
D
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
  Am                     C
I can't ask for anything more


D
I can't ask for anything more


G
The path I chose isn't straight and narrow
Cadd9
It wanders 'round like a drunken fellow
     D
Some days it's hard for me to follow
               Am                 C
But if you've got my back I'll go on.
   D                            G
If you've got my back I'll go on.

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.
