Capo 2

Am Em Em7  Am Em Em7  C D G

Well, it was battered and scarred
An the auctioneer felt
C                       G
It was hardly worth his while
To waste much time on the old violin
  C           Am7          D
But he held it up with a smile
It sure ain't much
But it's all we got left
C                           Am
I guess we ought to sell it too
G                                 D
Now who'll start the bid on this old violin
C             Am7              G 
Just one more and we'll be through

And then he cried

One, give me one dollar

Who'll make it two
Only two dollars

Who'll make it three
Three dollars twice
Now that's a good price
C                       G
But who's got a bid for me

Raise up your hand

And don't wait any longer
Am                   Am7
The auction's about to end
Who's got four

Just one dollar more
C         D         G
To bid on this old violin

Well the air was hot
And the people stood around
C                       G
As the sun was setting low
From the back of the crowd a gray-haired man
C               Am          D
Came forward, picked up the bow
G                          D
He wiped the dust from the old violin
C                    Am
And tightened up the strings
G                                  D
Then he played out a melody pure and sweet
C                       G
sweeter than the angels sing

And then the music stopped
Am                        C                   G
And the auctioneer with a voice that was quiet and low
Em                             C
He said What am I bid for this old violin
G                  D
Then he held it up with a bow

And then he cried out one give me one thousand,
Who’ll make it two only two thousand who’ll make it three,
Am7                                     D
Three thousand twice you know that’s a good price,
C                         G
Common who’s gonna bid for me?
                                               Am         Am7
And the people cried out what made the change we don’t understand,
Then the auctioneer stopped and he said with a smile,
C                       D         G
It was the touch of the Master’s hand

Now you know
Many a man with a life out of tune
C                            G
Is battered and scarred with sin
And he's auctioned cheap to a thankless world
C         Am        D
Much like that old violin
G                              D
Then the master comes and the foolish crowd
C    G        Am
They never understand
The worth of a soul
And the change that is wrought
C                       D            G
Just by one touch of the Master's hand
