intro: G

G                                          C*
Waitin' for my ride / Jesus is floatin' outside

C*              D         G
Shine on, sweet Jesus, on me

G                                                 C*
Watchin' the water rise / I'm gettin' lost in the tide

C*           D            G
Cry all your teardrops on me

      C           D          G                C 
While i'm still myself, your blankets covered me

C                D            G
Covered me while i was still asleep

Watchin' the planets shine / reflecting yourself in the sky
Shine on, sweet Jesus, on me
Scraping these smiles of mine / impossible one at a time
Cry all your teardrops on me
While I'm still myself, your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep 

Jesus is at my side / wondering what he will find
Shine on, sweet Jesus, on me
Watchin' the water rise / I'm gettin' lost in the tide
Cry all your teardrops on me
While I'm still myself, your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep
