HEAVEN ON THEIR MINDS (Judas)

           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
            Dm                  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
            Dm                A            Bb
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              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           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       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       Bb
It was beautiful but now it's sour
         Dm       Bbmaj7
Yes it's all gone sour...

------                                 D
         Don't you mind about the future,
                                    A
         Don't you try to think ahead
                                  D
         Save tomorrow for tomorrow,
                                A7
         Think about today instead
            A7                                            D7
Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ? ETC.

Jesus:   I could give you facts and figures -
------   I could give you plans and forecasts
         Even tell you where I'm going -

Apostles:   When do we ride into Jerusalem ?

         A(stop)
Jesus:   Why should you want to know ?
                                        D
------   Why are you obsessed with fighting
                                      A
         Times and fates you can't defy  ?
                                        D
         If you knew the path we're riding
                                        A
         You'd understand it less than I  !

Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?

Mary M. :   Let me try to cool down your face a bit ...

Jesus:   A                                                       D
------   Mary that is good - while you prattle through your supper
         D                          A
         Where and when and who and how
         A                           D
         She alone has tried to give me
         A                            D
         What I need right here and now !

Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?

         G                             C     Cm
Judas:   It seems to me a strange thing mystifying
------           G               C                              G
         That a man like you can waste his time on women of her kind !
         G                         C    CM
         Yes I can understand that she amuses,

             G                   C                                G
         But to let her stroke you, kiss your hair is hardly in your line.

                      F    C              G
        It's not that I object to her profession
                 F              C          F                 G
        But she doesn't fit in well with what you teach and say
                    F            C         G
        It doesn't help us if you're inconsistent
                   F              C       F           G
        They only need a small excuse to put us all away

         Ab      Bb  Fm
Jesus:   Who are you   to criticize her?
------   Who are you   to despise her?
         Ab         Bb    Fm
         Leave her, Leave her, let her be now
         Ab         Bb    Fm
         Leave her, Leave her, she's with me now
         C  Bbm Abm  Gm    Fm     C  Bbm Abm  Gm    Fm
         If your slate is clean - then you can throw stones
         C  Bbm Abm  Gm    Fm     C  Bbm Abm  Gm    Fm
         If your slate is not -   then leave her alone


      Cm                               Fm                       Bbm
      I'm amazed that men like you can be so shallow, thick and slow
      Bbm7                            G                           C
      There's not a man among you who knows or cares if I come or go
      Ab        Bb  Fm
All   No you're wro-ong!   You're very wrong! (4x)
      Cm  Bbm  Cm   Bbm  Cm   Cm  Bbm  Cm Bbm   Cm

Woman your fine ointment -- brand new and expensive
Em              C     D       Em

to save the poor from their lot?
Em                   D     C                  D

Judas:   My God!  I saw him - he looked three-quarters dead!
------   And he was so bad I had to turn my head
         You beat him so hard that he was bent and lame
         And I know who everybody's gonna blame
         I don't believe he knows I acted for our good
         Eb
         I'd save to him all this suffering if I could
         D7      G7       C7  F7      D7   G7     C7   F7
         Don't believe... our good... save him... if I could...

            Gm              D             D7          Gm

                Bb          C                D7                Gm
            The mob turned against him - you backed the right horse
            Gm          D              D7           Gm

               Bb         C        D7          Gm
            Pretty good wages for one little kiss
         Eb                        Bb
Judas:   Christ!  I know you can't hear me

         But I only did what you wanted me to
         Eb                        Bb
         Christ!  I'd sell out the nation
             Ab7         Gm               D         Gm
         For I have been saddled with the murder of you

         Gm          D               D7          Gm
         I have been splattered with innocent blood,

         I shall be dragged through the slime and the mud.
         Gm          D     D7                 Gm
         I have been splattered with innocent blood,
          Bb            C              D7
         I shall be dragged through the slime and the...
         D7               D7            Gm
         slime and the... slime and the mud!

            G                    C    G
            I don't know how to love him
            C                   G/D   D
            I don't know why he moves me
                   G    D              G    D
            He's a man  -  he's just a man
                  Bm    Em           Bm       Em
            He is not a King - he is just the same
            C    G  Am  G      D
              As any- one I    know
            D            G
            He scares me so
               C7                    B7                  Em
               When he's cold and dead will he let me be?
                Em                     C                    G    F
                Does he love, does he love me too?  Does he care for me?

 [music like "Heaven On Their Minds"]

         My mind is in darkness now - My God, I'm sick
         I've been used and you knew ah, all the time
         God!  I'll never ever knows why you chose me for your crime...
         Your foul bloody crime
         You have murdered me!  You have murdered me! Murdered me! Murdered me!
         Murdered me! Murdered me!

First and foremost, you get five stars for pulling all of this together. Looking forward to going through all of this, especially since some are arranged differently than what I've played. Great work!
