Notes: This is an update (fix) of Chorded Version 6
 Effects I use:
-I use a Digitech GNX1
-Acoustic for intro
-Warm clean for verse
-Metallica distortion for everything else
(DC Talk just uses clean and distortion)
 -I would recommended 2 guitarists for this song if playing live.
 -Listen carefully to the song. You will here a difference from main riff and
chorus that is why I titled them differently


[Intro]
F                G#                        D#     c
What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak
F      	            G#	D#	    C
What will people do when they find that it's true?

[Verse]
F     C#     A#
Separated, I cut myself clean,
F           C#         A#
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
F         C#          A#
Been apprehended by a spiritual force
F                  C#             A#
And a grace that replaced all the me I've divorced

[Rap]
F                         C#
I saw a man with tattoo on his big fat belly
A#                D#		   C#
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
F 		            C#
It took me a while to catch what it said
A#                       D#
Cause I had to match the rhythm of his belly with my head
F   		  C#		        A#                D# C#
'Jesus Saves' is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
F				C#
He stood on a box in the middle of the city
A# 		         D#
And claimed he had a dream

[Chorus]
F	         G#           D#            D      C
What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak
F               G#      D#             A#    C
What will people do when they find that it's true?
F             G#            D#    D    C
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak
F           G#       D#         A#   C
Cause there ain't no disguising the truth

F5 (let ring)
There ain't no disguising the truth

No I ain’t into hiding the truth

[Verse]
Kamikaze my death is gain
I've been marked by my maker
A peculiar display
The high and lofty they see me as weak
Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek

[Rap]
There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn't too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
The Pharisee's tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak


[Repeat chorus]
F              G#    D#   D  C
I don’t mean to hide it

[Bridge]
(Use natural harmonics)
People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger

What will people think
What will people think
What will people do
What will people do
I don't really care
What else can I say
There ain't no disguising the truth
Jesus is the way
