PRODIGAL â€" Casting Crowns
Tabbed by: Kengus

Ok, so this isn't dead on (at least not the intro), but sounds close
and good enough when playing the chords. The guitar is picking the whole
song through I think, but these chords work just as well. See what you
think. It could be in another tuning as well, may be half step down?

Standard tuning

INTRO, something like this


            C#m (x46650)        Asus2
Living on my own, thinking for myself
               E               Bsus4 (x24400)
Castles in the sand, temporary wealth
                      C#m                         Asus2
The walls are falling down, the storms are closing in
                         E                Bsus4
And tears have filled my eyes, here I am again

         C#m         Asus2     E    Bsus4
And I've held out as long as I can
         C#m           Asus2          E     Bsus4
Now I'm letting go and holding out my hand

C#m               Asus2     
   Daddy, here I am again
         E              Bsus4
Will You take me back tonight
C#m                          Asus2
   I went and made the world my friend
        E               Bsus4
And it left me high and dry
  Asus2               C#m
I drag Your name back through the mud
     Bsus4             F#m11 (244200)
That You first found me in
    Asus2        C#m
Not worthy to be called Your son
   Bsus4         F#m11
Is this to be my end
              C#m   Asus2
Daddy, here I am
      E    Bsus4
Here I am again

C#m  Asus2  E  Bsus4

VERSE2 (with drums, guitar picking in background)
Curse this morning sun
Drags me in to one more day
Of reaping what I've sown
Of living with my shame
Welcome to my world
And the life that I have made
Where one day you're a prince
The next day you're a slave

PRE-CHORUS (same as before)

About the artist behind Prodigal:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
