Wouldn't Take Nothin' for My Journey


Intro: G, C, F, C,
Chorus:

Well, I (C) wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now,
(F) I'm gonna make it to Heaven somehow,
(C) Though the Devil tempts me and tries to turn me (G) around.
He's (C) offered everything that's got a name,
All the (F) wealth I want and worldly fame,
But if I (C) could still I wouldn't take (G) nothin' for my journey (C) now.
Well I (C) started out travellin' for the (G) Lord many years (C) ago, (F) (C)
I (C) had a lot of heartaches, (G) met a lot of grief and (C) woe. (C7)
But (F) when I would stumble, then I would humble (C) down, (Am)
An' I can (C) say thank the Lord, I wouldn't (G) take nothin' for my journey now. (C)
Chorus
(A)  Well there's (D) nothin' in the world that'll (A) ever take the place of God's (D) love,
All the silver and gold could (A) never buy a mighty touch from (D) above. (D7)
But when my (G) soul needs a healin' and I being to feelin' His (D) power, (Bm)
I can (D) say thank the Lord, I wouldn't (A) take nothin' for my journey now.
2nd Chorus:

(A) Well, I (D) wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now,
(G) I'm gonna make it to Heaven somehow,
(D) Though the Devil tempts me and tries to turn me (A) around.
He's (D) offered everything that's got a name,
All the (G) wealth I want and worldly fame,
But if I could still I wouldn't take (A) nothin' for my journey (D) now. (G)
But if I (D) could still I wouldn't take (A) nothin' for my journey (D) now. (G)
But if I (D) could still I wouldn't take (A) nothin' for my journey (D) now. (G) (D)
