How Many Kings - Downhere (live version chord/lyrics)

How Many Kings

as done by Downhere on SPIRIT 105.3 FM Live In Studio

see the performance of the song on youtube:



Notes: The 9 or so versions of this song on Ultimate Guitar are incomplete - still!
But now that has changed.
This is the complete version and it's accurate. There's been some good attempts on youtube for tutorials
and here on Ultimate Guitar but what I've seen - it's not quite right and/or incomplete.

[Verse 1]
G                                  
Follow the star to a place unexpected
G/E                              
Would you believe after all we’ve projected
Am7
A child in a manger
G                                
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
G/E                                        
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother's
Am7                                                                 D
shawl, just a child, is this who we’ve waited for?

How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
G/E
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
Am7                                                                D
How many greats have become the least for me?
G
How many Gods have poured out their hearts
G/E
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
Am7                                                           D
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

[Verse 2]
G                                    
Bringing our gifts for the newborn savior
G/E
All that we have whether costly or meek
Am7
Because we believe
G                                              
Gold for his honor and frankincense for his
G/E
pleasure and myrrh for the cross he’ll suffer
Am7                                                            D
Do you believe, is this who we’ve waited for?
                     backing vocal ---- (It’s who we’ve waited for)

How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?

How many greats have become the least for me?
G
How many gods have poured out their hearts
G/E
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
Am7                                                           D
How many fathers gave up their sons for me? - only One did that for
