05 Backslidin' Blues
Words and music: Bob Hartman
Taken from The Petra Songbook - Special 10-Year Anniversary Souvenir Edition
A9             A13
   Please tell me
D9                              D#9
   What makes me feel this way
E9                               Eb9
   I've been down to the bottom
   And I don't want to stay
   Tell me what can I do
   To get back to You?

I got the blues
D                   A      E7  Bb9
  Those backslidin' blues

I can see it
I've been on the wrong road
And I'm too tired to carry
Such a heavy load
Satan's bugging me now
I can't take anymore

Repeat (Chorus)

Repeat Verse Chords

Repeat (Chorus)

Have mercy
Take me back once again
I'll never be perfect
And I sure haven't been
I know that you will
But you know that until

Repeat (Chorus)
