Intro - x2 -: Bbm    Ab    Db Gb Db Ab--

Verse:
Db
Well I came home
         Gb
Like a stone
             Db              Ab
And I fell heavy into your arms
               Db
These days of dust
              Gb
Which we've known
          Db                  Ab
Will blow away with this new sun

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm    Ab         Db
And I'll kneel down 
  Gb   Db   Ab
Wait for now
    Bbm    Ab     Db
And I'll kneel down
  Gb   Db   Ab
Know my ground

Chorus:
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you

Interlude - x4 -: Db

Verse:
Db
So break my step
      Gb
And relent
      Db                    Ab
You forgave and I won't forget
                Db
Know what we've seen
             Gb
And him with less
            Db                 Ab  
Now in some way, shake the excess

Chorus:
Db
Cause I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you

Verse:
Db
Now I'll be bold
            Gb
As well as strong
        Db                Ab  
Use my head alongside my heart
           Db
So take my flesh
           Gb
And fix my eyes
              Db                  Ab
That tethered mind free from the lies

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm   Ab     Db
And I'll kneel down
Gb    Db   Ab
Wait for now
    Bbm   Ab     Db
I'll kneel down
Gb    Db   Ab
Know my ground

Interlude - x2 -: Db   Ab Bbm   Gb Db Ab

Bridge:
 Db    Ab   Bbm
Raise my hands
  Gb        Db      Ab
Paint my spirit gold
  Db   Ab     Bbm
And bow my head
  Gb       Db     Ab
Keep my heart slow  

Chorus:
Db
Cause I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab
I will wait for you
Db
And I will wait, 
                   Fm  Ab    Db
I will wait for you

    In my opinion, DDUDU played really fast works great, and on the pre-chorus, only one strum per chord.

  2. UkeGirlLele100

    I love this song +1 and -1 are the best for me

  3. Tyler Kropp

    If you’re a beginner like me, use -1 with a capo on the first fret.

  4. Sage Wilcox

    +1, -1, or -3 are all good and relatively simple!
