God Draws Straight

	  		

Verse 1:

G B As I left my house, as I walked out today Am Cm Thought I walked out my marriage. Thought I walked out on grace G Am C D As the dawn it was breaking at the end of the street Am C I didn't know what would happen, didn't know what I'd see G B I saw two transit buses blocked the road on our side Am Cm Saw a couple of joggers who chanced to run by G `Gm C D Saw some soldiers come out and they mixed with the crowd Am Cm Tears came to my eyes we're just walking around
tabchorus
G D C G D C And there're so many people - Everybody is here! G D C G I saw the girls from the office D C I saw those guys from the street G B You might think you are lost, but then you will find Em C G D G C G D That god draws straight, but with crooked lines

Verse 2:

G B I saw a matron in white, her face lifted to heaven Am Cm Saw nuns on their knees and some who were weeping G Am C D Saw a middle-aged man and government clerk Am C An Afromestizo held his rosary up G B I saw nobody leave, I didn't feel fear or terror Am Cm It felt like a movie , like the end of an era G Am C D Nobody got hurt and nobody died Am Cm I'll remember this day, I'll remember this time
tabchorus
G D C G D C And there're so many people - Everybody is here! G D C G I saw the girls from the office D C I saw those guys from the street G B You might think you are lost, but then you will find Em C G D G C G D That god draws straight, but with crooked lines

Verse 3:

G B As I turned on my walkman, and all I could hear - Am Cm Every station was Marcos, he's on every TV G Am C D An appliance store window he fills every screen Am C Then the TVs went blank and his face disappeared G Then the darkness it thickened B There was no time for choices Am Cm Half blind I ran, I was guided by voices G Am C D When the choppers took off leaving Malacaņang Am Cm We knew it was over knew it was the end
tabchorus
G D C G D C And there're so many people - Everybody is here! G D C G I saw the girls from the office D C I saw those guys from the street G B You might think you are lost, but then you will find Em C G D G C G That god draws straight, but with crooked lines Em C G D G Yea, god draws straight, but with crooked lines
