Song of the Magi
by Anais Mitchell

capo 5

Am G F C G

verse:
Am
when we came
		    G
we came through the cold
	F
we came bearing gifts of gold
    C		     G
and frankincense and myrrh
		Am
and there were trumpets playing
	   G
there were angels looking down
     F
on a west bank town
C      G            Am       G
and he so loved the world!

chorus:
Am      G/B              Am
wore we then our warmest capes
        G/B		 Am
wore we then our walking shoes
Am  G/B		     Am        G/B
opened wide the city gates
Am             G
and let us through
F      C   G

verse:
a child is born
born in Bethlehem
born in a cattle pen
a child is born on the killing floor
and still he no crying makes
still as the air is he
lying so prayfully
there waiting for the war
welcome home, my child
your home is a checkpoint now
your home is a border town
welcome to the brawl
life ain't fair, my child
put your hands in the air, my child
slowly now, single file, now
C              G    (no extra Am and G here)
up against the wall

chorus:
wear we now our warmest coats
wear we now our walking shoes
open wide the gates of hope
and let us through

verse:
when we came
we came through the cold
we came bearing gifts of gold
and frankincense and myrrh
and there were shepherds praying
there were lions laying down
with the lambs in a west bank town
C	G	    Am             C
and he so loved the world!
