This transcription is not my own work; it was contributed to the site by another derek webb fan.

I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me. I haven't reviewed or editted them, so no guarantees about accuracy, but I'm sure people will find them useful. If you have transcribed a Caedmon's Call or derek webb song that's not already on this site, please feel free to send it in to be shared here.


Love Is Not Against The Law
Derek Webb - Mockingbird
Transcribed by John Huss

Politics or love
Can make you blind or make you see
Make you a slave or make you free
Am/G                      F
     But only one does it all

And it's giving up your life
For the ones you hate the most
It's giving them your gown
When they've taken your clothes

     C        Am   Em   F
It's learning to admit
            C     Am      G            F
When you've had a hand in setting them up
   G/B           F/C
In knocking them down

C       F
Love is not against the law
Am      D7
Love is not against the law
C       G     F    C
  Love, love, love

Are we defending life
When we just pick and choose
Lives acceptable to lose
And which ones to defend

‘Cause you cannot choose your friends
But you choose your enemies
And what if they were one
One and the same

Could you find a way
To love them both the same
To give them your name
