Solved Problem with Rich Text Document program

Specs: xp pro, amd 64 2.2ghz 2gigram
I am a musician who uses the 'rich text document' program for lyrics to songs.
The margins are set to allow as much text on one page as possible but that
isn't the issue.
The issue is; I double space the lyrics so I can use the line between the lyric for (letter) chord
symbols over the word I want for the chord change.

example:

G D7
1. BENEATH THE CROSS OF JESUS, I GLADLY TAKE MY STAND
G
THE SHADOW OF A MIGHTY ROCK, WITHIN A WEARY LAND
C
A HOME WITHIN THE WILDERNESS, A REST UPON THE WAY
G D7
FROM THE BURNING OF THE NOONTIDE HEAT, AND BURNING OF
G G+
THE DAY.
everything looks good in print review but when I print it out the chord symbols
don't match the word beneath by 2 to sometimes 4 spaces.
Is this something between the text and the printer or somehow am I not using R.T.D.
correctly?
Thanks for your time.

It might be because your using a font with a variable width. In other words, an i is going to be narrower then other letters, and letters like w or m are going to be wider. Try changing it to a fixed width font like courier.

Thanks for your suggestion but the courier font just isn't going to work well.

Lucida console is darker hence better contrast against white paper so I think it will work.
Thanks much:)

Lucinda Console if you are using wordpad might be another fixed.
