Edwin McCain - Good enough to play





Intro - E - B - A - B = 2x's


C#m = x46654
G# = x31110




(verse 1)
E                                     C#m
When footsteps from that Sunday march faded out into the dark
      A                          Bsus-B
The melody blows in to ease the pain
     E                                   C#m
Two thousand years and we're still here fighting over the same old fear
      A                                   Bsus
The muddy steps of hate can't stand this rain



(chorus)
     C#m                       B
I'll stand up on this stage as if it was my altar
     G#                         C#m                         
I'll face down all this rage and no, I will not falter
         A                            B
Say I'm good enough to play but not good enough to stay
         E - B - A - B - E - B - A - E
In your heart




(verse 2)
E                                      C#m
The mat on the floor says welcome, the sign on the door says no
            A                            Bsus            B
Says 'No coloreds allowed unless you're playing in the show'
     E                                  C#m
Well I've never seen a color except the ones up in the sky
        A                        Bsus           B
When I see this kind of hatred I die a little inside



(chorus)
     C#m                       B
I'll stand up on this stage as if it was my altar
     G#                          C#m                         
I'll face down all this rage and no, I will not falter
         A                            B
Say I'm good enough to play but not good enough to stay
             G#                         C#m
And when you finish your song boy you've got to be on your way
         A                          Bsus            B
If I'm good enough to play then I'm good enough to stay
          E - B - A - B - E - B - A - B
In your heart



(verse 3)
E                                   C#m
This one's for the Godfather, Duke, Ella, and the Count
         A                                     Bsus
And for all those who fought their way here no matter the amount
   E                                       C#m
For all of God's children walking through dumpsters in the back
         A                                 Bsus                    B
Had to finish their show and leave just because their skin was black



(ending chorus)
     C#m                       B
They stood up on the stage as if it was their altar
      G#                         C#m 
They faced down all the rage and no, they did not falter
          A                           Bsus            B
They were good enough to play but not good enough to stay
                G#                          C#m
And when they finished their songs boy they had to be on their way
           A                         Bsus                  B     
They were good enough to play and somehow they've always stayed
          E - B - A - B - E - B - A - B
In our hearts
            A                             B
And if I'm good enough to play then we've got to find the space
          E 
In our hearts



Outro - E - B - A - B - E

I love this song,but it's a little out of my vocal range, could one of you extremely talented musicians transpose this a key lower for me? I'm not sure about the Am7, would that be a F#m, and what would the Dm be?(B7)and while were at it, what would the Fm7 be???
