All I did was take what he said and put it to text.

Casting Crowns plays on Capo 4, but I play on Capo 3 for singing reasons.
G* = G chord with walking down to Em.
D* = D chord with Dsus4 thrown in there a couple times.

Intro: Em C G* Em C G

VERSE 1:

Em            C             G*
Ezekiel stared down into the valley

Em                    C             D*
Filled with dry bones baking in the sun

Em                   C           G
Remains that used to be a mighty army

C                         D                  Em
To him, it looked like their fighting days were done

VERSE 2:

Em          C              G*
But driven by a calling on his life

Em                     C              D*
He spoke God's words, the bones began to shake

Em                      C              G
He stared wide-eyed as the flesh began to form

C                 D
And as he prophesied to the wind

C
The soldiers began to wake

CHORUS:

G             Am            C
And the Lord sent His wind into the valley

Em                     C               D
And breathed the breath of life into their souls

G           Am             C
And raised them again a mighty army

D                 Em                   C
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again

C                                     Em
For they have been filled with the Spirit Wind

C G D Em C G D Em
Woah, woah, woah...

VERSE 3:

Em      C                       G*
A pastor stands before his congregation

Em            C            D*
Once a mighty army for the Lord
 
    Em              C               G
But now he stares into the lifeless eyes

C                   Am
Believers leading carnal lives
 
           D                     Em
He wonders what they're fighting for

VERSE 4:

Em          C              G*
But driven by a calling on his life

(F#)        Em                    C             D
He spoke God's word like he'd done a hundred times before

Em                 C          G
But this time he comes broken and weeping

C                 D
With tears of a broken heart

C
And he cries out to the Lord

Chorus

BRIDGE:

C  G    D          Em
Holy Spirit, breathe on me

C            G        D
Breathe Your life in me

[x4]

Chorus

Romans 10:13

About the artist behind Spirit Wind:

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.
