Verse 1:

A                 E
  A word from the wise

              F#m                   D
don't try to make life on your own

A                E               F#m  D
  remember that jah jah by your side

D              A            E           F#m            D
  for I was a soul who was lost and my life was in dismay

A                   E                 F#m   D
  for amongst evil forces in which I came

A               E             F#m                 D
  guns and ammunition were my chosen way of life

A                  E                 F#m     D
  with God fearin people I chose to strife

D                 A              E             F#m               D
  for all of the lives that are taken they can never be replaced

A                     E                   F#m   D
  But still Jah Jah chose to remember my face


CHORUS:

                A             E
though I never lived like he wanted

      F#m                 D
I was mindful of what he taught me

          A                        E
so now I beg and plead, Iím on my bended knees

      F#m                   D
cause Father you rescue me

              A        E            F#m                     D
I've got the scars to show I barely made it to long life's road

               A                        E
cause when my life got dark, He was the only spark

            D
He was the light at the end of the road

VERSE 2:

When I was a young boy, growing up in August Town
We ate from the same pot, we were ithrens all around
From corner to colour and corner, from rockers to jungle turf tire
Rising to dread-heights and river, all around, yeah
And then the football ground became a battle field and my life seem so surreal
People were falling all around, but Jah helped me to stand my ground
Only Jah, Only Jah, could have helped me to stand my ground

CHORUS
Though I never lived like he wanted,
I was mindful of what he taught me
So now I beg and plead, and on my bending knees
Cause father you rescued me, and I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road
Cause when my life got dark, he was the only spark
The light at the end of the road oh oh

Never lived to please him, I never lived like I should
ohhhhhhoooh, father you rescued me oh yeah oh yeah

I've lived and I've learned, I have made mistakes along the way
Now I beg for forgiveness, each day as I try to pray
So take it from me son, you can change the world today
And am living proof, living proof that crime doesn't pay

CHORUS 4X
For I never lived like he wanted,
I was mindful of what he taught me
So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees
Cause father you rescued me
And I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road
Cause when my life got dark, he was the only spark
The light at the end of the road

I never lived like he wanted,
I was mindful of what he taught me
So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees
Cause father you rescued me
And I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road
Cause when my life got dark, he was the only spark
The light at the end of the road

Though I never lived like he wanted,
I was mindful of what he taught me
Am on my bending knees
I ask the father please
Father, you rescued me
And I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road
As my life got dark, he was the only spark
The light at the end of the road

I never lived, never lived, I never lived the way he wanted me to
I never lived, God I tell you, God is my relief
