Author of the Story

INTRO:   G   G/Bb  Em*

        G
She had one foot on the ground
    G/Bb            Em
And one foot in the air
              G
It seemed the world held her cold hand
           G/Bb               Em
While the  angels brushed her hair

**           D7             C
"But that's  how it has to  end
   G
On  this side of glory,
      D7                 C
Some  wounds will never  mend,"
          G
Says the  author of the story
G  G/BbEm
G  G/BbEm

        G
I held  one hand in the fire
            G/Bb                 Em
And lifted  one hand towards the sky
         G
But the  busy world still turned
         G/Bb             Em
And the  angels passed me by

    D7                    C      G
Sometimes there seems to  be no  author of the story
       D7                 C     G
These  thoughts occur to  me on  this side of glory

Solo:  G

       G
And I  kissed the Lamb of God
        G/Bb              Em
And my  fingers found the wounds
         G
And the  angels moved the stone
       G/Bb                Em
And I  searched the vacant room

        D7         C         G
That's  how it all begins on  this side of glory
             D7            C                 G
"And you'll  see her shine again," Said the  author of the story

      G                  Gm
And I kissed the lamb of God
       Em
And my fingers found the wounds
        G                Gm
And the angels moved the stone
      Em
And I searched the vacant room
      G                  Gm
And I kissed the lamb of God
       Em
And my fingers found the wounds
        G                Gm
And the angels moved the stone
      Em                  G   G/BbEm
And I searched the vacant room
G   G/Bb  Em     G
