**To get the proper sound for the rhythm guitar, play this capo 7 in the C 
position (hit transpose up 5 half steps to get the chords)**

When you play it Capo 7, leave the E string open on the three chords 
throughout the verse to get that sound you hear on "The Medicine" version. 



Here it is in standard G position for the lead guitar and bass, no capo.


Intro x2: 
G - D/F# - A 


Verse 1
G        D/F#   A                         G              D/F#             A
All day long,    we are sinking just like stones into the shadow of Your kindness
G        D/F#   A                              G              
In this shade,    between the wingspan of Your face is
         D/F#                A
the only place where we can bed these burdens down (so I)


Pre-Chorus
Bm7     A         G              Bm7       A         G 
Lift my   eyes up   to the hills...  Who is   gonna      help me now?


Chorus
Em7       D/F#  G         A     G         A    G
You're my only, You're my only, You're my only hope


Intro


Verse 2
G      D/F#   A                      G           D/F#             A
Tangled up,    in the great ridiculous, way You love. It is the only way to live.
G           D/F#   A                              G              
There's no escape,   when You look at me that way
                D/F#          A
Staring  like a deer into the headlights of Your praises (so I)


Pre - Chorus


Chorus 2
Em7       D/F#  G         A     G         A     G
You're my only, You're my only, You're my only hope
G          A   Bm7         E7     G         A    Bm7
You're my only, You're my only, You're my only hope


Bridge
        G             D/F#     A
and You come like the sun with pockets full of redemption
         G            D/F#           A
and You come with the sun, with the sun

This is the backbone of the entire song. Play around with some lead parts 
during the verses in the D major scale and get creative!
