Verse 1 chords:
CIt's a hungry world out there, even the wind will take a bite
F And I can feel the world circling, sniffin' round me in the night
C CAnd the lost sheep grow teeth, forsake the lambs and lie with the lions
C And the livin' is desperate, vicarious and mean
FAnd gettin' by is so hard that even the rocks are picked clean
G CAnd the bones of small contention are the only food the hungry find
Chorus chords: So be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight Verse 2: [use verse 1 chords] Where the roses eat the thorns, the thistles have no chance And ain't it no wonder that the babies come out crying in advance And the children long for shelter in the hollow of some lonesome cheek And the sky's so cold and clear the stars may stick you where you stand And you're glad it's dark 'cause you might see the Master's hand And you might cast around forever and never find the peace you seek Chorus chords: Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light; Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight. Verse 3: [use verse 1 chords] For every cry in the night, somebody says "Have faith" Be content inside your questions, minutes, hours inside a maze Tell me what's the point of light that you have to strike a match to find So throw away those lamentations, we both know them all too well If there's a book of Jubilations well have to write it for ourselves So come and lie next to me darling, let's write it while we still got time Interlude 1: [C - F - G - C] Verse 4: [use verse 1 chords] So if you've got a light, hold it high for me I need it back tonight, hold it high for me Cause I'm face to face, hold it high for me In a lonesome place, hold it high for me Well all the hurt that I've done, hold it high for me That can't be undone, hold it high for me Light had got me through, hold it high for me I'd do the same for you, hold it high for me Verse 5: [use verse 1 chords] I'll hold it high for you, cause I know you got I'll hold it high for you, your own valley to walk I'll hold it high for you, though it's dark as death I'll hold it high for you, and it gets darker yet I'll hold it high for you, though you passing's lost I'll hold it high for you, through the bees and rocks I'll hold it high for you, I'll keep you safe from harm I'll hold it high for you, 'till you're back in my arms Chorus chords: Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight Outro: [repeat chorus chords]
