Song: Jesus Shaves
Performed by: The Roches
Written by: Paranoid Larry
Album: Moonswept

----- ----- -----

This is an acoustic adaptation.  What this means is that it does not follow 
the recording line by line.  Instead, it is meant to be played as written 
below, with one person singing the melody.  Should somebody decide to tab 
the much more complex version as per The Roches, I hope this is a good 
starting point.

It may be noted, however, that the chords written below ARE in the same key 
as the recording.  In addition, the chords have been carefully placed above 
the syllables in which they make the most sense to be emphasized.

      G             C          G
Jesus shaves, joins corporate America,
          G    D         G
Gets laid off, grows his beard back
         G            C     G
Stays up late, sees a TV commercial
              G       C       G
About being a welder, makes a phone call.

      G       C          G
Jesus shaves, goes on an interview,
          G                D        G
Does real well, he's got a way with people
          G        C          G
Two years on, he's still an apprentice,
            G          C    G
But not for long, it's graduation.

      G       C             G
Jesus shaves, puts his best suit on,
          G         D          G
Gets a certificate, makes it official,
           G       C           G
Now he's a welder, wears a big helmet,
            G         C     G
And twice a week now, Jesus shaves.

D               D        C    G
Blessed are the ones who make peace,
D               D        C      G
Blessed are the ones who scrape by,
D               D           C    G
Blessed are the ones living holy lives,
    C             D              G
And here's to the rest of us who try.

      G         C      G
Jesus shaves on Sunday morning,
              G             D        G
Decides to go fishing after going to church,
           G           C        G
It's wintertime, so he walks on water,
                   G        C          G
Digs a hole in the ice, and fishes for perch.

      G          C              G
Jesus shaves the scales off the fishes,
             G          D         G
Has a few fillets and a couple of brewskies,
                 G          C       G
Thinks about the girl, Magdelena in payroll,
                  G             C       G
Decides that he's gonna ask her out for dinner.

      G          C       G
Jesus shaves for work on Monday,
            G       D           G
Goes to the office, gathers his courage,
               G         C              G
He's still not sure just how he's gonna ask her,
                  G            C              G
Walks over to her desk, sees a picture of her boyfriend.

D               D        C    G
Blessed are the ones who make peace,
D               D        C      G
Blessed are the ones who scrape by,
D               D           C    G
Blessed are the ones living holy lives,
    C             D              G
And here's to the rest of us who try.

             G           C        G
She says "Hello, how are you this morning?"
               G              D       G
He asks if she knows if it'll snow or rain,
                G              C              G
She notices him looking at the picture on her desktop,
                  G          C      G
She says it's her cousin who passed away.

                G             C            G
He says "That's great!" - she looks at him funny,
                  G               D         G
He says "I didn't mean that," she says it's okay,
             G                     C     G
And then she smiles, and they both start laughing,
               G              C     G
That's when he knows it's his lucky day.

      G       C              G
Jesus shaves, smiling in the mirror,
             G                D     G
Magdelena is saying that they gotta hurry,
                    G             C             G
They'll be late for work, and the school bus is coming,
                         G           C     G
But their daughter likes watching as Jesus shaves.

D               D        C    G
Blessed are the ones who make peace,
D               D        C      G
Blessed are the ones who scrape by,
D               D           C    G
Blessed are the ones living holy lives,
    C             D              G
And here's to the rest of us who try.

C             D              G
Here's to the rest of us who try.
