Joshua Leventhal – Goliath chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
G C G CI met Goliath on a day that I did not foresee
G C G CI'm not a soldier and I never expected to be
EmBut he shouts at my kin
C GAnd mocks them as he turns his back
Em CIt's not so much glory as honor
G CThat drives me to act
[Verse 2]
GThe youngest of seven
C G CNo one was ever looking at me
GExcept the Almighty
C G CStaring right through my chest cavity
EmThe prophet-man said
C GGod looked in my heart and saw a king
EmBut I know my heart well and
C GI never quite like what I see
[Chorus]
EmAnd a crown is the last thing
C GI ever thought would grace my bow
EmI didn't want it back then and
C BmI'm not sure I want it now
EmI've got no need to follow
C GTo follow the footsteps of kings
Em CI just wanna tend pastures and kill giants
G CWith pebbles and slings
[Verse 3]
GBeauty on rooftops
C G CLeads swift to the den of the dead
GThe lust of my flesh
C G CNumbs my heart, numbs my soul, numbs my head
EmThe darkness is dancing
C GI can feel his ear-to-ear grin
EmWell, I'm sick and I'm twisted
C GAgainst God alone have I sinned
[Chorus]
EmAnd a crown is the last thing
C GI ever thought would grace my bow
EmI didn't want it back then and
C BmI'm not sure I want it now
EmI've got no need to follow
C GTo follow the footsteps of kings
Em CI just wanna tend pastures and kill giants
G CWith pebbles and slings
[Instrumental] Em C G Em C G [Verse 4]
G C G CWell I slew Goliath twenty years ago to the day
GI can still feel his heartbeat
C G CJust slowly slipping away
EmAnd he was a monster
C GThat much is easy to see
EmBut it takes one to kill one
C GSo what does that make me?
