I Love You This Much - Jimmy Wayne
Album: Jimmy Wayne
Writers: Jimmy Wayne/Chris Dubois/Don Sampson

Intro: D Dsus2-D G Asus A (x2)

D A/C# Bm A
He can't remember the times that he thought
G D/F# Em7 A
Does my daddy love me, probably not
D A/C# Bm A
That didn't stop him from wishing that he did
G D/F# Em7 Asus A
Didn't keep him from wanting or worshipping him

D A/C# Bm A
He guesses he saw him about once a year
G D/F# Em7 A
He could still feel the way he felt standing in tears
D A/C# Bm A
Stretching his arms out as far as they'd go
G D/F# Em7 A
Whispering, dad I want you to know

G D/F#
I love you this much and I'm waiting on you
Em7 A
To make up your mind, do you love me too?
G D/F#
How ever long it takes I'm never giving up
Em7 D/F# G
No matter what
I love you this much

(repeat intro progression once except after chorus 2)

D A/C# Bm A
He grew to hate him for what he had done
G D/F# Em A
Cause what kind of father could do that to his son
D A/C# Bm A
He said, damn you daddy the day that he died
G D/F# Em A
The man didn't blink but the little boy cried


Em7 D
Half way through the service while the choir sang a hymn
He looked up above the preacher and he sat and stared at him

D A/C# Bm A
He said, forgive me father when he realized
G D/F# Em7 A
That he hadn't been unloved or alone all his life
D A/C# Bm A
His arms were stretched out as far as they'd go
G D/F# Em7 A
Nailed to the cross for the whole world to know
