There's a key change toward the end of the song on the CD but I haven't
Two Out of Three
(D - G - D - Bm - D - A - D)
(D) I've been thinking back over my life,
And (G) some of the questions I've (D) had.
I've thought about living,
I've thought about (Bm) dying.
And (E) what makes me happy or (A) sad.
Well (D) most of my questions I've kept to myself,
Like, (G) "Why in the world was I (D) born?"
But the number one question I'd like to (Bm) ask,
(D) I'd like to (A) ask of the (D) Lord.
(D) Jesus how could You love me,
Oh sweet (G) Jesus how could You love (D) me.
Cause when I had a choice between good and (Bm) bad,
I (D) picked bad (A) two out of (D) three.
(D) What makes a man start looking around,
When he's (G) already got a good (D) wife.
What makes a man pour drink from a (Bm) bottle,
When he (E) knows it can cut like a (A) knife.
Tho' (D) some are called good,
Some are called bad,
We have (G) all been tempted and (D) charmed.
But all of us sinners,
The man in the (Bm) sandals will (D) welcome right (A) back in his (D) arms.
