The Darkest Hour – Traditional (Yoakam)

G C G
The darkest hour is just before dawn.
D
The narrow way leads home.
G C G
Lay down your soul at Jesus’ feet.
> D G
The darkest hour is just before dawn.

G C
The saddest soul is thinking,
G D
Of a day that’s almost gone.
G C
Still darkness falls around us,
G D G
And we must journey on.

CHORUS

G C
Like a shepherd out on the mountain,
G D
A-watching his sheep down below,
G C
He’s coming back to claim us.
G D G
Will you be ready to go?

CHORUS
