Brandon Heath – Bend Joseph chords

Verse :
GI am not my family tree
CThese are different leaves, you know
EmThere are miles and miles between
DMy roots and what I'm tryin' to grow
GI am not the slave they sold
CNor am I royalty
Em Dworn them both The finest coat,
GAnd rags that barely covered me
EmBut there's mercy in the soil
CMercy in the sun
GLearnin' to forgive
DWhat cannot be undone
Em What was meant to harm
CCan't harm you in the end
GStepped out on a limb I thought my break
DBut love said,
EmIt will only bend
CIt will only bend
GI am not my past mistakes
CLabeled by some place in time
EmNor am I a trophy case
DTryin' to maintain my shine
GI have dreamed a thousand dreams
CWatch a grain in famine grow
EmI am not my family tree
D I have branches of my own
G DOh, Does fate resign us too?
Em Find shelter for our wounds
CBeneath the battered roof of broken dreams
G DOh, But I will choose to stand
EmIn the shadow of Your hand
C And see what grows when grace has sown the seed
(Slow Down Strum ) Em
C G DOh, oh, oh
EmThese are different leaves, you know
C G DOh, oh, oh
