Unanswered Prayers (Garth Brooks) - STING 21113   (Thorsten Hubmann)

 

(Opener): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

Just the other night, at a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into, my old high school flame
And as I introduced them, the past came back to me
I couldnít help but think of
Ė do an ALLEMANDE LEFT and WEAVE
Sometimes I thank God, for unanswered prayers

 Ė SWING your lady round and PROMENADE her back home
Just because he doesnít answer doesnít mean he donít care
Some of Godís greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers

 

 

(Figure): HEADS SQUARE THRU Four hands round and go - Find the corner lady and you do a DO SA DO

SWING THRU and now let the BOYS RUN right BEND THE LINE and do the RIGHT AND LEFT THRU

FLUTTERWHEEL all along, SLIDE THRU and then - SWING the Corner girl and PROMENADE her again

Just because he doesnít answer doesnít mean he donít care
Some of Godís greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers

 

 

(Middle Break): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

She was the one, that Iíd wanted for all times
Each night Iíd spend prayiní, that God would make her mine
And if heíd only grant me, this wish I wished back then
Iíd never ask for anything
- ALLEMANDE LEFT and WEAVE

Sometimes I thank God, for unanswered prayers

Remember when youíre talkiní to the man upstairs
Just because he doesnít answer doesnít mean he donít care
Some of Godís greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers

 

 

(Closer): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

She wasnít quite the angel, I remembered in my dreams
I could tell that time had changed me

                                                - in her eyes too it seemed
Tried to talk about the old days

                                   - there wasnít much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what heís doiní

 Ė ALLEMANDE LEFT and WEAVE THE RING
And as she walked away, I looked at my wife,
Then and there I thanked the good Lord

††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††- for the gifts in my life
Just because he doesnít answer

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††- doesnít mean he donít care
Some of Godís greatest gifts Ö

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

 

Just the other night, at a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into, my old high school flame
And as I introduced them, the past came back to me
And I couldnít help but think of, the way things used to be

 

She was the one, that Iíd wanted for all times
And each night Iíd spend prayiní, that God would make her mine
And if heíd only grant me, this wish I wished back then
Iíd never ask for anything again

 

Sometimes I thank God, for unanswered prayers
Remember when youíre talkiní to the man upstairs
That just because he doesnít answer doesnít mean he donít care
Some of Godís greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers

 

She wasnít quite the angel, that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me, in her eyes too it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days, there wasnít much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what heís doiní after all

 

And as she walked away, and I looked at my wife
And then and there I thanked the good Lord, for the gifts in my life

 

Some of Godís greatest gifts Öare unanswered,
Some of Godís greatest gifts Öare all too often unanswered...
Some of Godís greatest gifts Öare unanswered prayers
