Intro - x2 -: Gm    F    Bb Eb Bb F--

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

Pre-Chorus:
Gm    F         Bb
And I'll kneel down 
  Eb   Bb   F
Wait for now
    Gm    F     Bb
And I'll kneel down
  Eb   Bb   F
Know my ground

Chorus:
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you

Interlude - x4 -: Bb

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

Chorus:
Bb
Cause I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you

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

Pre-Chorus:
Gm   F     Bb
And I'll kneel down
Eb    Bb   F
Wait for now
    Gm   F     Bb
I'll kneel down
Eb    Bb   F
Know my ground

Interlude - x2 -: Bb   F Gm   Eb Bb F

Bridge:
 Bb    F   Gm
Raise my hands
  Eb        Bb      F
Paint my spirit gold
  Bb   F     Gm
And bow my head
  Eb       Bb     F
Keep my heart slow  

Chorus:
Bb
Cause I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F
I will wait for you
Bb
And I will wait, 
                   Dm  F    Bb
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!
