6th capo
G Em C D


G
Jesus was a man,

Em
Traveled through the land

C                       D
Hardworking man and brave.

G
He said to the rich,

Em
'Give your money to the poor'

         C          D              G                    
But they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

-----------
G
Jesus was a man, 

Em
A carpenter by hand

C                               D
His followers were true and brave.

G
But that dirty little coward, 

Em
Named Judas Iscarot, 

    C           D               G
Has laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

-----------
G
He went to the preacher, 

Em
He went to the sheriff

C                          D
And he told them all the same

G
Sell all your jewelry,

Em
And give it to the poor

      C          D               G 
They laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

-----------
G
When Jesus came to town,

Em
All the working folk around

C                      D
Believed what he did say.

G
But the bankers and the preachers, 

Em
They nailed him on the cross.

      C          D               G 
They laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

-----------
G
The People held their breath 

Em
when they heard about his death.

C                      D
And everybody wondered 'Why?'

G
It was the bitter land war,

Em
And the soldiers they hired,

     C           D             G
To nail Jesus Christ to the sky

----------
G
This song was written

Em
in New York City.

C                             D
A rich man, preacher, and slave.

G
If Jesus was to preach here,

Em
Would he preach in Galilee?

             C           D              G
Or would we lay Jesus Christ in his grave?

             C           D              G
Or would we lay Jesus Christ in his grave?
