NOTES:	-The optional intro is something that I made
	 up to approximate the piano intro...Jewel
	 doesn't ever do this, but I just thought it
	 was sort of fun
	-Keep in mind that the Tag is constantly 
	 different in each performance, so I didn't 
	 stick to a prescribed way of doing it...I just
	 used most of the descriptive words that she
	 uses in different versions..play it as you like!
	-All chords and tab relative to capo
	-Em9 is played with your index on A string, 
	 ring finger on D string, & middle on B string

Verse 1:

Em                            C
   If I could tell the world just one thing
         G                  D   Dsus4  D
It would be that we're all OK
Em                           C
   And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
     G                      D    Dsus4  D
And useless in times like these
Em                  C
   I won't be made useless
G                           D   Dsus4  D
   I won't be idle with despair
Em                         C
   I will gather myself around my faith
      G                            D   Dsus4  D
For light does the darkness most fear

CHORUS:

G       D         Am
   My hands are small, I know
           G      D          C
But they're not yours, they are my own
           G      D         Am
But they're not yours, they are my own
    G         D     Em
And    I am never broken

Verse 2:

     Em              C
Poverty stole your golden shoes
G                             D      Dsus4  D
   But it didn't steal your laughter
Em                         C
   And heartache came to visit me
        G                   D    Dsus4   D
But I knew it wasn't ever after
Em               C
   We'll fight, not out of spite
       G                   D
For someone must stand up for what's right
         Em                     C
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
  G                    D     Dsus4   D
There ours shall go singing

REPEAT CHORUS

Bridge:

G         D   Em             C
  In the end only kindness matters
G         D   Em             C
  In the end only kindness matters
Em                 C          G             D
   I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
Em                 C          G             D
   I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
Em                 C          G             D
   I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
