This really isn't a hard song. Here are some chords that may help out:

"Balm In Gilead" by: Karen Clark-Sheard
Key G  LH/RH

Verse:

A / C-E-G  There is a balm in Gilead,
E / A-D-F#
(repeat 2x)

A / C-E-G  there is a balm in Gilead,
E / G#-B#-D-G
(repeat)


Pre-vamp:

G / A-D-G  oh, oh,
C / Bb-E-G  oh,
B / A-D#-G  oh,
C# / B-E-G  there
C / A-D-G  is
B / A-D-F#  a balm
E / D-F#-A  in
A / C-E-G  Gi-
B / B-D-G  le
C / C-E-G  ad,
D / C-E-G  or  D / F#-A#-C-F
D / C-E-G  or  D / F#-A#-C-F

Vamp:

there is a
G / A-D-G  balm,
Bb / Ab-C-D-G
C / Bb-D-E-G
oh, oh, oh
G / A-D-G  there
is a
B / A-D-Eb-G  balm,
C / Bb-D-E-G
there is a
G / A-D-G  balm,
Bb / Ab-C-D-G
C / Bb-D-E-G
oh,  oh, oh
D / C-F-G  there is a
C# / B-Eb-F-G  balm,
C / Bb-D-E-G
E / G#-B#-D-G


Bridge:

G / C-F-A
C / B-E-G  Jesus
A / C-E-G  is the
B / A-D-F#  balm in
E / A-D-F#  Gilead,
G / C-F-A  He's a
C / B-E-G  healer,
A / C-E-G
B / A-D#-G  Jesus is the balm,
(repeat)

When the song gets to the vamp and starts modulating, the modulation chord is the 4th chord in the RH with the 5th in the bass of the new key. Then just learn the vamp chords in the new key. Example:

Modulation to Ab:  Eb / Db-F-Ab
Modulation to A:  E / D-F#-A
etc.


Take what you can from this and use it to learn other songs and help your progress in music. God bless!!!
