This song is done in 'A' on the album.  There is a F#m in this song
and, I hate that chord, so I decided to play with a capo, which made it
a very easy song to play.  So that is how I am going to transcribe it.
The bridge I am a little weary of.  I don't know if it is exactly
right.  If you have any corrections be sure to let me know.  This is
pretty close though.

Somebody Must Be Praying For Me

Capo 2nd fret

Intro:  G  C  G  C

G
She left Oklahoma for California 
    C
Sunglasses on the brim of her hat
G
Smoke was pourin from that old Cadilac 
         C
But she wasn't turning back
Em     D          G
Just outside of Flagstaff, 
       C
Motor blew on her Coupe DeVille
Em       D       G
Just in time she saw a sign, 
         C                          D
There was a Texaco waiting at the bottom of the hill.

And she said

Chorus I

G                   C
Somebody must be prayin for me
G                           D
Somebody out there must be prayin for me
C                D
Must be angels, I can't see
Em                D          G
Somebody must be prayin for me

G C  Yeah  G  C

Verse 2

G
A boy about twenty climbed out of a truck
    C
All covered in grease and dirt
G
She said hey Charles, but he just laughed
            C
And said I'm wearing my daddy's shirt.
Em              D       G
He stood there lost in her eyes 
    C
And she got lost in his
Em         D        G
As the years rolled by she would sigh
     C            D
Everytime they kissed.

Repeat Chorus I

Bridge

Em                              C
Sometimes she stares out the window
Am                              D
And wonders about her Hollywood dreams
Em                            C
But when she tucks her kids in bed
Am                                 D
She softly whispers as they fall asleep

Chorus II (softly)

G                   C
Somebody must be prayin for me
G                              D
Somebody out there must be prayin for me
C                                      C
Ain't it funny how you always find, just what you need.
Em                D         G
Somebody must be prayin for me.

G                 D         G
Somebody must be prayin for me
