Intro: 
Bm Em Bm A Bm
Bm  A Bm  A 
Bm  A Bm  A 

        Bm     A         Em          Bm      
 Well Brother John went down to the garden
       Bm       A        Bm
 On a long hot summer's day
     Bm         A              Em           Bm
 To watch that girl, he would hide in the shadows
         Bm         A     Bm
 As she worked the time away
           A                      D
 With her long black hair and her eyes of fire
        G                  F#sus4 F#
 And a body to drive men crazy
        Bm                       Em
 It was on that day there would be a change
         A                Bm A Bm A Bm
 In the world of Brother John

      Bm      A             Em          Bm
 She felt his eyes and she walked up beside him
        Bm         A      Bm
 And she took him by the hand
      Bm             A             Em         Bm
 She said, "Brother John, it's so hard to be holy
            Bm      A    Bm
 Would you like to be a man?
         A                       D
 I will meet you tonight at the monastery wall
             G                       F#sus4 F#
 If you're there we will find out together"
          Bm                      Em
 And the Devil said, "There's a place in Hell
          A               Bm 
 For the soul of Brother John"

G                 D        
 Hallelujah, temptation is here
A                     Bm D
 It's not a dream anymore
G                  D
 Hallelujah, it's finally here
            F#sus4                    F#
 I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting

Bm  A Bm  A 

        Bm     A        Em          Bm
 Well Brother John lay tossing and turning
         Bm         A           Bm
 In his bed in the heat of the night
     Bm        A           Em          Bm
 He heard his name and he went to the window
            Bm         A        Bm
 Where she was in the pale moonlight
         A                         D
 Oh the sins of the flesh are too much to deny
         G                  F#sus4 F#
 He was lost to her body forever
          Bm                   Em
 And the Devil laughed and the angels cried
          A               Bm
 For the soul of Brother John

G                 D        
 Hallelujah, temptation is here
A                     Bm D
 It's not a dream anymore
G                  D
 Hallelujah, it's finally here
            F#sus4                    F#
 I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting

Bm Em Bm A
Bm  A Bm  A

G                 D        
 Hallelujah, temptation is here
A                     Bm D
 It's not a dream anymore
G                  D
 Hallelujah, it's finally here
            F#sus4                    F#
 I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting!
