Okay, guys, this is my first time doing this, so hang with me.  But I'm
pretty sure it's all correct.  I've played it a couple of times in worship
with my youth group, and it all
sounded ok.  Also, a lot of credit to Dan N., my former youth pastor, who
helped me
figure out some of the chords.  A great way to play this song with two
guitars is to have one play an F#m on the 9th fret, while the other plays it
on the 2nd.  But when I play it by myself, I usually play it on the 9th fret.
 Whichever one you like the best.  Also, on the chorus, have one guitar play
the chords in the barred position, while the other plays the chords in the
first position.  But don't try that for the verses... it sounds strange.  If
anyone knows the chords to any other Audio Adrenaline songs, please send them
to me at  I'm a big AA fan but I can't seem to figure out
their chord progressions.  As always, please send me any "better" versions or
inform me of mistakes I've made.  On with Big House...
