Emily Ann Roberts – The Building Chords on Piano & Ukulele

These are The Building chords by Emily Ann Roberts on Piano, Ukulele, Guitar, and Keyboard.
[Intro]
   G  Am G

[Verse]
 G     Am        G

I can't help but wonder 
if these floorboard creaked
     C        G
the same in '42

               D           Em  
When my great grandpa his heart 
                Am7    
and soul into preachin' 
            D
the good news

           G       Am       G  
And these tattered old red hymn 
             C                G
books have caught a tear or two
             D               
'Cause it's hard to sing 'em, 
      Em                 
just as I am, without the
   Am7         Dsus4 D
 spirit movin' you
          Am7   G       C   
If those altars at the front 
        G   D
could testify I know they'd say
    Am7   G        C       G 
It never once got old hearing 
    D
a sinner call His name

[Chorus]
            C
I know the stained glass 
never saved a soul
          Am7              
And these pews ain't on the 
                   G
roll that's caaalled up yonder
            C
I know the pulpit's 
just a wooden stand
         Am7
But it's felt the power of God's hand
        G                D   
As His glory filled the place
               Em7
 with awe and wonder

   Em               Am7    
I know it's just a building, 
                   Dsus4 D
plain and simple white
              Am7          
But it's the building where
  D7               G    Am G
 Jesus changed my life

[Verse]
          G                        
It never claimed to be the biggest,
         C              G
 nobody ever called it cool
                   D        
But it's where my mama met my
   Em         Am7          D
 daddy at vacation bible school

               G       Am     
It's been the picture-perfect 
 G          C                G
dream of a thousand glowin' brides
                D              Em  
It's heard the weeping as the loved 
              Am7 
ones laid to rest 
               D
with sad goodbyes

[Chorus]
                C
And I know the stained 
glass never saved a soul
          Am7           
And these pews ain't on 
                       G
the roll that's called up yonder
            C
I know the pulpit's just 
a wooden stand
         Am7
But it's felt the power of God's hand
        G                D    
As His glory filled the place
              Em
 with awe and wonder
   D                Am7     
I know it's just a building, 
                  Dsus4 D
plain and simple white
              Am7          
But it's the building where
  D                G
 Jesus changed my life

[Bridge]
      C       Em
It's where I learned that
 Jesus hears my prayers
          B
And he's walkin' with me everywhere
        D                G  
And no matter what I've done 
         A
I know I'm loved

    Am7     Am   D
I'm always loved

           G           Am     G
I know it won't stand here forever
               C                  G
But I'll sure miss it when it's gone
         D           Em
And I'll be forever grateful
    Am        C         G
To call that church my home


[Chorus]
            C
I know the stained glass never
 saved a soul
           Am                   
And these pews ain't on the roll
               G
 that's calleeeed up yonder

            C
I know the pulpit's 
just a wooden stand
         Am7
But it's felt the power of God's hand
        G                D   
As His glory filled the place
               Em
 with awe and wonder
   D                Am     
I know it's just a building,
                   Dsus4 D
 plain and simple white

              Am7          
But it's the building where 
  D            Em
Jesus changed my life

[Outro]
          Am           
It's the building where 
  D                G
Jesus changed my life

[Outro]
G
