Over My Head

E
Over my head, over my head
A                     B                      E
There is a light from heaven shining over my head
E
Over my head, over my head
A                     B                      E
I feel the light from heaven shining over my head

E                 A
When chilly winds blow 
    B             E
And hard times do show
                 A
There's only one thing
 B          A
One thing I know

E
Over my head, over my head
A                 B                      E
I hear the angels singing up and over my head
E
Don't be mislead, 'cos right up ahead
A                     B                        E 
There is a light from heaven shining over your head

E              A 
When I lose my way
B           E
Stumble and stray
              A 
Oh please, oh please
B           A
Show me the way

E A B E A B E

          E                         A
There's a light from heaven shining down upon us all
  B                       E
A chance for all of us to rise and hear the call
          E                 A
If we can believe there's a greater life up there
   B                                 E         B A E
It makes your time on earth a little easier to bear

E
Over my head, over my head
A                     B                      E
There is a light from heaven shining over my head
E
Over my head, over my head
A                     B                      E
I feel the light from heaven shining over my head

E               A
Well many's the time
B                E
I break down and cry
                 A
This old life of mine
B            A
Is an uphill climb

E
Over my head, over my head
A                 B                      E 
I hear the angels singing up and over my head
E
Don't be mislead, 'cos right up ahead
A                     B                        E
There is a light from heaven shining over your head
A                     B                      A E B7 E
I feel the light from heaven shining over my head
     A                     B                      E
Yeah I feel the light from heaven shining over my head
