Intro: Bm7 Gmaj7
 
        Bm7                      Gmaj7
It’s so easy to lose the burden——take our eyes of the fields
Bm7                       Gmaj7
Settle into apathy and forget what the harvest yields
        C#m7                    (C#m7)
It’s so easy to think we’re finished with our labor for awhile
                      (C#m7)                       N.C.
Kick back and let somebody else go the extra mile
 
Au*   Cu   Dm Bb F/C         Dm         C  F      C      Dm
Jesus said go——into all the world, make disciples of all men
Au    Cu Dm Bb  F       C        F          G        A
We gotta go——to the highways, compel them to come in
 
CHORUS
   D              A      Bm     G     D          A        Bm
As long as there’s a tearful eye that cries alone at night
   D              A      Bm    G         G/F#         A
As long as there’s a weary soul ready to end the fight
   G             G/F#    A              Em7             D/F#      G
As long as there’s an aching heart that still has strength to beat
D            A        Bm    G
We gotta take this message
F    C            Dm  C Dm C
Back to the street
F            C        Dm   Bb  F
We gotta take this message
     C      Dm
Back to the street

        Bm                          Gmaj7
It’s so easy to stay untangled with everyone else’s life
Bm                                 Gmaj7
Don’t get involved with strangers——don’t get involved with strife
        Amaj7
It’s so easy to save your own life——resting on what you’ve done
    (Amaj7)
But Jesus would leave the ninety-nine——to try to save the one
 
         Amaj7                             (Amaj7)
It’s not easy to beat the system——it’s not easy to face the heat
    A   N.C.   B      A   N.C. B
But somebody’s got to take this message
G    A            Bm
Back to the street
 
   D              A      Bm     G     D          A        Bm
As long as there’s a tearful eye that cries alone at night
   D              A      Bm    G         G/F#         A
As long as there’s a weary soul ready to end the fight
   G             G/F#    A              Em7             D/F#      G
As long as there’s an aching heart that still has strength to beat
D            A        Bm    G
We gotta take this message
F    C            Dm  C Dm C
Back to the street
F            C        Dm   Bb  F
We gotta take this message
     C      Dm
Back to the street
