Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey there! This is my first posted chord chart, but I've been making them for a 
few years now, for my church and for myself.
This is based off of what I heard on Bob Carlisle's Youtube account.

As a bass player, I've marked out what the bass is playing by using slash chords
(i.e. Dm/C, C/E, F/A, etc...)
For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of slash chords, here's a quick explanation:
The first part,Dm, is the chord that's being played,
while the second part after the slash, C, is the note sustained by the bassist.

Also, when I place a <> by a chord, that means to hold a chord and let it ring out.

Enjoy!

As I drop to my knees by her bed at night,

she talks to Jesus, and I close my eyes.

One part woman, the other part girl.

To perfume and makeup, from ribbons and curls.

Standing in the bride room just staring at her,
     Dm                 C/E             F            G
She asked me what I'm thinking, and I said "I'm not sure,

I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
