The Christian Life

           D          A            D                                                     My buddies tell me that I should have waited D            A         E              A They say I'm missing a whole world of fun D           A             D           G But I still love them and I sing with pride    D       A         D I like the Christian life   A                         G              D I won't lose a friend while heeding  God's call     A                    G            A For what is a friend who wants you to fall D           A            D           G Others find pleasures in things I despise   D        A         D I like the Christian life SOLO D          A             D My buddies shun me since I turned to Jesus              A         E              A They say I'm missing a whole world of fun D          A        D           G I live without them walking the line    D       A         D I like the Christian life   A                         G              D I won't lose a friend while heeding  God's call      A                   G            A For what is a friend who wants you to fall D           A            D            G Others find pleasures in things I despise   D        A         D I like the Christian life
