[Verse 1]
C                              G
 I grew up scared of my father..
F
 His words were known to draw blood
C                             G
 I know that nobody's perfect..
F
 But I never questioned his love

[Pre-Chorus]
G                        Am             
 When he cursed the television
G                            C
 And that god damn rainbow parade
G                          Am
 I wrapped my wounds in religion
G                             Am
 That night I learned how to pray

[Chorus]
       C                                        Am
If you poisoned the apple why plant the tree?.....
    G         C
Why plant the tree?
           C                                        Am
If there's one in the city you're willing to keep.....
    G     C
Let it be me
          C          G
Let it be me, Lord....
       F            
Let it be me
          C          G
Let it be me, Lord....
       F
Let it be me

[Verse 2]
C                                  G
 I'm learning to love the progress..
F
 Get more faith with every inch
C                                       G    F
 You're making peace with the thought of growing out of more than your skin
[Pre-Chorus]
G                             Am
 What was once out of the question
C                        C
 now gets met a quarter way
G                     Am
 It might not be a rainbow
G                             Am
 but at least it's more than grey

[Chorus]
       C                                        Am
If you poisoned the apple why plant the tree?.....
    G         C
Why plant the tree?
           C                                        Am
If there's one in the city you're willing to keep.....
    G     C
Let it be me
          C          G
Let it be me, Lord....
       F            
Let it be me
          C          G
Let it be me, Lord....
       F
Let it be me

[Bridge]
          G                        Am
Let it be me that you treat like a daughter
          G                    C
Let it be me when you give me away
          G                     Am
Let it be you who's proud of me sort of
       G                                C
'Cause blood is blood at the end of the day

[Chorus]
       C                                        Am
If you poisoned the apple why plant the tree?.....
    G         C
Why plant the tree?
           C                                        Am
If there's one in the city you're willing to keep.....
    G     C
Let it be me
          C          G
Let it be me, Lord....
       F            
Let it be me
          C          G
Let it be me, Lord....
       F
Let it be me
