Just listening to Joan Baez' new album "Day After Tomorrow".

Anybody know the words and guitar chords to "God is God"?
It's hard to make out all the words on the disc.

Thanks

God Don't Never Change? Any words will do. Have chords. And a lotta words. Not hers... Some mine.

If she has a clip online, gimme a link so I can hear if it's the same song.

Is this the one? written by (Steve Earle)


GOD IS GOD
(Steve Earle)

I believe in prophecy.
Some folks see things not everybody can see.
And, once in a while, they pass the secret along to you and me.

And I believe in miracles.
Something sacred burning in every bush and tree.
We can all learn to sing the songs the angels sing.

Yeah, I believe in God, and God ain't me.

I've traveled around the world,
Stood on mighty mountains and gazed across the wilderness.
Never seen a line in the sand or a diamond in the dust.

And as our fate unfurls,
Every day that passes I'm sure about a little bit less.
Even my money keeps telling me it's God I need to trust.

And I believe in God, but God ain't us.

God, in my little understanding, don't care what name I call.
Whether or not I believe doesn't matter at all.

I receive the blessings.
That every day on Earth's another chance to get it right.
Let this little light of mine shine and rage against the night.

Just another lesson
Maybe someone's watching and wondering what I got.
Maybe this is why I'm here on Earth, and maybe not.
Chorus:
But I believe in God, and God is God.

Stu,
that link is for Stephen Curtis Chapman's song "God Is God."   It's a nice song, but quite a different one from the Steve Earle song of the same title.

Thanks RamblinStu, unfortunately it's not the right one. There seems to be 2 songs around with the exact same title "God is God", your link leads us to the song by Steven Curtis Chapman, whereas I was looking for the one written by Steve Earle.
Sorry my mistake: I did not post either the lyrics nor the right link.
The one I am talking about begins with

"I believe in prophecy.
Some folks see things not everybody can see.
And,once in a while,they pass the secret along to you and me.

Yeah, I believe in God, and God ain't me."

Here are Earle's lyrics.   Someone can probably post the chords.

It's OK, Stu.   When I first clicked your link and it took me to that YouTube, I was thinking, "Wow! Steven Curtis Chapman doing a Steve Earle song!! Maybe there's hope for some sort of meeting of the minds yet!!"

LOL

well if you follow Steve Earle much he usually uses the old standard of simple 3 chords.    such as C, F, C, Gm.   he will use a lot of hammer on. Through the years he has always amazed me at how much great music he can produce from simple chord arrangement.
