           Dm             F           G
My mind is clearer now at last all to well
      F            G             Dm
I can see where we all soon will be
       Dm             F             G
If you strip away the myth from the man
         F            G             Dm
You will see where we all soon will be

              Dm                     Em
Jesus! You've started to believe the things they say of you
    F                      G                  Dm
You really do believe this talk of God is true
    Dm                            Em
And all the good you've done will soon get swept away
F                           G                      Dm
You've begun to matter more than the things you say

Dm                   F
Listen Jesus I don't like what I see
Dm                    G
All I ask is that you listen to me
Bb           C                             F        A
And remember I've been your right-hand man all along
         Dm                  Bb
You have set them all on fire
                   F
They think they've found the new Messiah
            D/A                A+   A     Bb   Dm7
And they'll hurt you when they find their wrong

Dm                   F
I remember when this whole thing began
Dm                     G
No talk of God then we called you a man
Bb             C                     F          A
And believe me my admiration for you hasn't died
          Dm                Bb
But ev'ry word you say today
             F
Gets twisted 'round some other way
            D/A              A+    A      Bb  Dm7
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied

[in 7/8]
Bb            F          Gm                   Dm
Nazareth your famous son should have stayed a great unknown
Gm              Dm/A         A              Dm
Like his father carving wood he'd have made good
Bb                F            Gm                Dm
Tables chairs and oaken chests would have suited Jesus best
Gm                 Dm/A         A           Dm
He'd have caused nobody harm -- no one alarm

back to 4/4]
Dm                  F
Listen Jesus do you care for your race?
Dm                    G
Don't you see we must keep in our place?
Bb                 C                          F           A
We are occupied -- have you forgotten how put down we are?
     Dm                     Bb
I am frightened by the crowd
           F
For we are getting much too loud
            Dm/A           A+  A  Bb Dm7
And they'll crush us if we go too far

[back to 7/8, instrumental break repeating previous 7/8 bridge]

[back to 4/4]
Dm                  F
Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Dm                     G
Please remember that I want us to live
Bb                      C                      F         A
But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hour
         Dm                 Bb
All your followers are blind
         F
Too much heaven on their minds
       Dm/A          A+   A   Bb
It was beautiful but now it's sour
         Dm       Bbmaj7
Yes it's all gone sour...

And we want you to sleep well tonight
A Bsus  E                  A   B E
Let the world turn without you tonight
A Bsus E            Am       Em            Am Bm E
If we try we'll get by so forget about all us tonight

Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine

[Judas]
Em                  D       C                   D
Woman your fine ointment -- brand new and expensive
Em              C     D       Em
could have been saved for the poor
Em                 D      C                     D
Why has it been wasted -- we could have raised maybe
Em                   C    D    Em
Three hundred silver pieces or more
Am             D       G                C
People who are hungry, people who are starving

Matter more than your feet and hair

[Mary]

Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and annoint you
C#m                         A
Myrrh for your hot forehead oh

Don't you know everything's alright yes everything's fine
A Bsus   E            A   B      E
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
A Bsus  E            A    B   E
For the fire in your head and feet
A Bsus     E                Am         Em                Am  Bm  E
Close your eyes, close your eyes and relax, think of nothing tonight
               A      B    E            A  B
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine

[Jesus]
Em                   D   C                 D
Surely you're not saying we have the resources
Em               C    D     Em
to save the poor from their lot?
Em                   D     C                  D
There will be poor always, pathetically struggling
Em               C      D      Em
Look at the good things you've got!
Am                     D
Think! while you still have me
G                     C
Move! while you still see me
B
You'll be lost
          Bsus  B
You'll be so so sorry
Bsus     B   Bsus
When I'm gone

[Mary]
E                             B7
Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and annoint you
C#m                         A
Myrrh for your hot forehead oh
          B7   E              A     B   E
Don't you know everything's alright yes everything's fine
A Bsus   E            A   B      E
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
A Bsus  E            A    B   E
For the fire in your head and feet
A Bsus     E                Am         Em                Am  Bm
Close your eyes, close your eyes and relax, think of nothing tonight

Close your eyes, close your eyes and relax (repeat, repeat, et al)

PILATE'S DREAM (Pilate)

[4/4]
  Bbm       Ebm       Ab7
I dreamed I met a Galilean
  Bbm             Cb
A most amazing man
  F7        F7+      Gb              Ebm6
He had that look you very rarely find
    F7               Bbm
The haunting, hunted kind

  Bbm          Ebm          Ab7
I asked him to say what had happened
Bbm              Cb
How it all began
  F7      F7+     Gb               Ebm6
I asked again, he never said a word
  F7            Bbm
As if he hadn't heard

Bb           Bb7
And next the room was full
   Ebm               Ab
of wild and angry men
               Ab7
they seemed to hate this man
     Db (tacet)
they fell on him and then
F7 (tacet)
they disappeared again

Bbm        Ebm             Ab7
Then I saw thousands of millions
Bbm                Cb
crying for this man
    F7                Gb                Ebm6
And then I heard them mentioning my name
    F7             Bbm
And leaving me the blame
