God Ain't No Stained Glass Window


G          A            D
There's so much I don't know
G          A            D
There's so much I don't know
  G          A             D
I don't understand why the summer's so hot
  G          A             D
I don't understand why an apple core rots
      G        A             D   
And I have no idea when I'll see a rainbow
            G              A
But there's one thing I do know


Chorus: 
            D            A             D
I know that God ain't no stained glass window
                         A    D
And I believe there is a Holy Ghost
            D            A             D
I know that God ain't no stained glass window
         G     A                D       G A D
Cause He never keeps His window closed



There's so much I don't see
There's so much I don't see
I don't see how hair can turn silver-grey
I don't see why my prayers can't get answered right away
I don't see why some folks keep a load in their mind
With a sharp axe to grind.


And I don't understand why the truth takes a twist
I don't understand why there is loneliness
I don't know why they claim some men have no soul
But there's one thing I do know


Chorus

      G     A                D
No He never keeps His window closed
