...THE GOOD BOOK SONG... by The Mainstreet Singers
------------------------..........................

*from 'A Mighty Wind Original Soundtrack' (2003)*


*CAPO 4th FRET*

(Original Key: B)


Intro:

G  D, G  D (n.C)

G   D     G    D
 Oh yeah, yeah yeah.

Verse 1:

    D (n.C)
Now God said to Noah: "I don't want no sinnin'",
 G  D     G    D
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).
           D (n.C)
"I've been telling you this since 'In the beginnin'",
 G  D     G    D
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).
           D (n.C)
"You gotta round up your sons and all of their women",
 G  D     G    D
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).

                E7                  A
"Because you're going on a big boat ride.
    D                      G
Now gather all the animals by the pair,
E7                        A
 Build a big ship about a million square,
    F#7                 Bm    A  G
And put all the animals right in there,
           A          D
And sail a-way on the tide".

Bridge 1:

    C       G        E7         A
But what if Noah had just said "No sir"?
          G        D        G     D
Well we'd all have fins and scaly skins,
     G               D        G            D
We'd breathe through gills in-stead of nos-trils,
         E7                       A
And we'd eat fish food instead of vitamin pills.

Chorus 1:

     G              A
It's scary but it's true,
   G           D          G           D
So do what the good book, do what the good book,
G            A         D
 Do what the good book tells you to.

 G  D     G    D    (n.C)
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).

*KEY CHANGE*
------------

Verse 2:

 A  E     A    E
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).

    E (n.C)
Now God said to David: "do you hear that drummin'?"
 A  E     A    E
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).
           E (n.C)
"You gotta great big Philistine army comin'".
 A  E     A    E
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).
           E (n.C)
"You wanna oil up your sling and really get it hummin'",
 A  E     A    E
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).
             F#7                    B
"Because you gotta take the big you down".

     E           A
Well David got a dose of frights,
       F#7                      B
But he wanted to be King of the Israelites,
      G#7             C#m      B   A
So he put old Goliath right in his sights,
                   B          E
And he bounced one off of his crown.

Bridge 2:

    D       A         F#7        B
But what if David had whined and wavered?
     A         E         A          E
We'd live like slaves to Philistine knaves,
    A            E      A       E
Our bosses would all be 30 feet tall,
     A          E              A    E
We'd wash their clothes with a fire hose,
         F#7                    B
And we'd sleep in the cracks be-tween their toes...

Chorus 2:

     A              B        G#7      C#
It's scary but it's true and if I was you;
    B           F#         B           F#
I'd do what the good book, do what the good book,
B            C#        F#
 Do what the good book tells me to.

 B  F#    B    F#
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).

B            C#        F#
 Do what the good book tells me to.

 B  F#    B    F#
(Oh yeah, yeah yeah).

B            C#                    F#
 Do what the good book te...lls me to.
