Jesus Take The Wheel 

**Capo 2nd fret**


G/B = x2003x or X20003

Intro: C  G/B  Am7  G/B (x2)

         C                   G/B
She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
     Am7                  G/B
On a snow white Christmas Eve
C                     G/B
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy
         Am7              G/B
With the baby in the backseat
      C                       G/B            Am7           G/B
Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
             F
It'd been a long hard year

           C                      G/B
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
        Am7           G/B
She was going way too fast
C           G/B
Before she knew it she was spinning
      Am7                 G/B
On a thin black sheet of glass
         C                      G/B
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
Am7                  G/B
She didn't even have time to cry
         F                        C
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air


Chorus:
                G
Jesus take the wheel
                 D
Take it from my hands
                      Am  G/B  C
Cause I can't do this on  my  own
            G
I'm letting go
                      D
So give me one more chance
                   Am   G/B  C
Save me from this road  I'm  on
                 C   G/B  Am7  G/B  C  G/B  F
Jesus take the wheel



         C                           G/B
It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
        Am7           G/B
And the car came to a stop
      C                     G/B
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Am7              G/B
Sleeping like a rock
             C               G/B
And for the first time in a long time
     Am7               G/B
She bowed her head to pray
              F                 C
She said I'm sorry for the way I've been living my life
   F                                C
I know I've got to change, so from now on tonight


Chorus:
                G
Jesus take the wheel
                 D
Take it from my hands
                      Am  G/B  C
Cause I can't do this on  my  own
            G
I'm letting go
                      D
So give me one more chance
                   Am   G/B  C
Save me from this road  I'm  on
                G    D  Am  C
Jesus take the wheel.........

                G
Ohh I'm letting go
                      D
So give me one more chance
                   Am   G/B  C
Save me from this road  I'm  on
           Am   G/B  C
>From this road  I'm  on
                 C   G/B  Am7
Jesus take the wheel
G/B           C          G/B
Oh, take it, take it from me
Am7 G/B  C   G/B  Am7  G/B  C  G/B   F
Oh...., whoa       oh.............
