Gm F#m (4x) (Chorus) Gm F#m Fm Em End: I am wanting I am needing I am kneeling I am needing Riff 1: ---0-2-3-2-0 -0--- Play twice in first half of chorus Riff 2: ---0-2/3-5-3-2-0 -0-------------------- Play twice in last half of chorus Bentley said the guitar is a G-Em, but it doesn't fit the recording and doesn't look like what Anthony and Freeman play in concert. I picked this up from seeing them play it in concert many times and off the album, so I may not be 100% correct. Check them out at Cornerstone and Youthfest and check out the album to get the strumming.
