How To Play I Want To Be Where You Are

I Just Want To Be Where You Are: LadyDpiano
Wisteria Flower Tunnel in Japan


 A beautiful worship song that I  have loved to play with the worship team in the past, is a song by Don Moen called,  I want To Be Where You Are. It was written in 1989 and it's in the Key of G with 4/4 time signature. Here's the chord chart that I found in my music library.


Verse 1 

G              Am7                        G2/B  C
I just want to be where you are

                D                 C/G  G  
Dwelling daily in Your presence

Em7                   Am7                 G2/B   C
I don’t want to worship from afar

                  D                              G  C/G  D/G  G
Draw me near to where You are

 Verse 2 

                    Am7                     G2/B  C

                D                 C/G  G  
In Your dwelling place forever

Em7                  Am7                          G2/B   C
Take me to the place where You are

                      D                            G  C/G  D/G  G

I want to be where You are

                            D/G  G    D/E
Dwelling in Your presence

Em                       Am7    C/D
Feasting at Your table

        D                    D/E   Em
Surrounded by Your glo - ry

     D    D/C       C     C/D
In Your pre  -  sence

                         G       Bm/F#        Em   Gmaj7/D
That’s where I always want to be

C         D          Eb        F                       G

 Bridge

O my    God

                       Am                         C/D  D/C
You are my strength and my song

        Bm                        Em
And when I’m in Your presence 

                    Am                           C/D
Though I’m weak You’re always strong

I just want to be, I just want to be with You



I'm sure you can play the song from the chord chart but I thought I'd post some slash chords and share with you how I play the song. There's a lot of third intervals in the melody to give the song that added harmony because the words are so beautiful to sing and listen to.
