Capo 3

Intro:

C   G/B   Am   G   F   F-G-Am-G/B
C   G/B   Am   G   F   Dsus-D   F


Verse 1:

C   G/B      Am       G       F
He  was her man; she was his wife
     F    G  Am    G/B      C
And late one win – ter    night
    G/B      Am    G   F
He knelt by  her,  as she gave birth
                   DsusD          F
But it wasn’t his child;    it wasn’t his child
C    G/B      Am       G     F
Yet still he took Him as his own
     F  G   Am     G/B   C
And as he watched  Him grow
     G/B        Am   G     F
It brought him joy; he loved that Boy
               DsusD                   F       G
But it wasn’t his       child; it wasn’t his child


Chorus 1:

Am          G               F                   Am   G
And like a father, he was strong, and kind and good
F       C               G
And I believe he did his best
Am         G                 F             Am
It wasn’t easy for him, but he did all he could
F             C                 G
His Son was different from the rest
              F                 DsusD    F
It wasn’t his child; it wasn’t his   child


Verse 2:

C    G/B      Am   G       F
And when the Boy became a Man
    F    G  Am      G/B    C
He took His fa  -  ther’s hand
C    G/B      Am         G       F
And soon the world would all know why
             DsusD             F        G
It wasn’t his child;   it wasn’t his child


Chorus 2:

Am             G              F                   Am   G
And like His father, He was strong, and kind and good
F       C               G
And I believe He did His best
Am         G                 F            Am
It wasn’t easy for Him, but He did all He could
        Am           G       F
He grew up with His hands in wood
        Am            G        F
And He died with His hands in wood
        Am         G         Dsus - D
He was God’s child;  He was God’s     child


Coda:

C  G/B     Am        G       F
He was her man; she was his wife
      F   G   Am     G/B    C
And late one win  -  ter   night
    G/B     Am      G     F
He knelt by her, as she gave birth
                  DsusD          F          G  Am
But it wasn’t his child,    it was God’s child
