Wayne Watson – Touch Of The Masters Hand chords

Capo 2

Am Em Em7  Am Em Em7  C D G

GWell, it was battered and scarred
DAn the auctioneer felt
C GIt was hardly worth his while
DTo waste much time on the old violin
C Am7 DBut he held it up with a smile
GIt sure ain't much
DBut it's all we got left
C AmI guess we ought to sell it too
G DNow who'll start the bid on this old violin
C Am7 G Just one more and we'll be through
GAnd then he cried
One, give me one dollar Who'll make it two
AmOnly two dollars
Who'll make it three
Am7Three dollars twice
DNow that's a good price
C GBut who's got a bid for me
Raise up your hand And don't wait any longer
Am Am7The auction's about to end
DWho's got four
Just one dollar more
C D GTo bid on this old violin
GWell the air was hot
DAnd the people stood around
C GAs the sun was setting low
DFrom the back of the crowd a gray-haired man
C Am DCame forward, picked up the bow
G DHe wiped the dust from the old violin
C AmAnd tightened up the strings
G DThen he played out a melody pure and sweet
C Gsweeter than the angels sing
DAnd then the music stopped
Am C GAnd the auctioneer with a voice that was quiet and low
Em CHe said What am I bid for this old violin
G DThen he held it up with a bow
GAnd then he cried out one give me one thousand,
AmWho’ll make it two only two thousand who’ll make it three,
Am7 DThree thousand twice you know that’s a good price,
C GCommon who’s gonna bid for me?
Am Am7And the people cried out what made the change we don’t understand,
DThen the auctioneer stopped and he said with a smile,
C D GIt was the touch of the Master’s hand
GNow you know
DMany a man with a life out of tune
C GIs battered and scarred with sin
DAnd he's auctioned cheap to a thankless world
C Am DMuch like that old violin
G DThen the master comes and the foolish crowd
C G AmThey never understand
GThe worth of a soul
DAnd the change that is wrought
C D GJust by one touch of the Master's hand
