Judas:   My God!  I saw him - he looked three-quarters dead!
------   And he was so bad I had to turn my head
         You beat him so hard that he was bent and lame
         And I know who everybody's gonna blame
         I don't believe he knows I acted for our good
             Eb                             F 
         I'd save to him all this suffering if I could
         D7      G7       C7  F7      D7   G7     C7   F7 
         Don't believe... our good... save him... if I could...

Priest 3:   Cut the confessions forget the excuses
---------     Bb         C                F             Bb
            I don't understand why you're filled with remorse
            Gm              D             D7          Gm
            All that you've said has come true with a vengeance
                Bb          C                D7               FmG
            The mob turned against him - you backed the right horse

Caiaphas:   What you have done will be saving of Israel
---------   You'll be remembered forever for this
            And not only that you've been paid for your efforts
            Pretty good wages for one little kiss

         Eb                        Bb
Judas:   Christ!  I know you can't hear me
------       Ab7    Gm           D         Eb
         But I only did what you wanted me to
         Eb                        Bb
         Christ!  I'd sell out the nation
             Ab7         Gm               D         Bb
         For I have been saddled with the murder of you

         I have been splattered with innocent blood,
         I shall be dragged through the slime and the mud.
         I have been splattered with innocent blood,
         I shall be dragged through the slime and the... 
         slime and the... slime and the mud!

            G C     G           C    G  
            I don't know how to love him
            C                   G/D   D  
            I don't know why he moves me
                   G/B  D              G    D
            He's a man  -  he's just a man
                  Bm    Em           Bm       Em        
            He is not a King - he is just the same
            C    G/B  Am  C/G  G/D   D
              As any- one I    know
            C  G/B    Am G
            He scares me so
            C7                 B7                  Em
            When he's cold and dead will he let me be?
                    Em/D                  C                      G    F 
            Does he love, does he love me too?  Does he care for me?

 [music like "Heaven On Their Minds" but in G with "hendrix" G]

         My mind is in darkness now - My God, I'm sick
         I've been used and you knew ah, all the time
         God!  I'll never ever knows why you chose me for your crime... 
         Your foul bloody crime
         You have murdered me!  You have murdered me! Murdered me! Murdered me!
         Murdered me! Murdered me!

Voice of Judas:
       E                         G7
       Everytime I look at you I don't understand
       A7                                 E7
       Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
       You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned
       Why'd you choose such a backward time and such a strange land?
       If you'd come today you would have reached a whole nation
       Israel in 4 B.C. had no mass communication

Girls: Don't you get me wrong, Don't you get me wrong now {2 times}
Judas: Don't you get me wrong {4 times}

Girls: Only want to know, Only want to know now {2 times} 
Judas: Only want to know {4 times}

         Jesus Christ Superstar
         Do you think you're what they say you are?

Voice of Judas:

       Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
       Who d'you think besides your self's the pick of the crop?
       Buddha was he where it's at? Is he where you are?
       Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?
       Did you mean to die like that?  Was that a mistake or
       Did you know your messy death would be a record-breaker?

Girls: Don't you get me wrong, Don't you get me wrong now {2 times}
Judas: Don't you get me wrong {4 times}

Girls: Only want to know, Only want to know now {2 times} 
Judas: Only want to know {4 times}

Choir:   Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ

         Jesus Christ Superstar

4-4 The Crucifixion
-----------------------
Jesus:   God forgive them - they don't know what they're doing
------   Who is my mother?  Where is my mother?
         My God My God why have you forgotten me?
         Oh God, I'm thirsty...
         It is finished...
         Father into your hands I commend my spirit!
