Capo 3
Intro    F F F G

F                                     F               G 
We'd see him in the distance on the trail along the rim
      F               F                G
His silver head against the mountain sky
F                                     F                  Dm
And Grandmas face would open up when she saw that it was him
      F                    G               F
And she'd say Daddy grab a chair its Mordecai
F                                         F                   G
And it seemed to me he brought a country store there on his back
      F               F               G
As he layed it all before us on the ground
F                                     F                   Dm
And I knew he'd finally reach into that ragged old back pack
        F                 G              F
For the candy that he always brought around


Chorus

F
He Said
   G                             F                        
My Papa was a wandering Jew and it's my fate to be one too
  F                                     G
I'll roam these mountain trails until I die
G                                F                                    
Perhaps one day I'll see my home and then he smiled and turned to go
F                G                F
And we all said goodbye to Mordecai

One evening when he stayed with us I saw him at his prayers
As the last light trickled through the cabin door
And he stood before the little yellow candle burning there
Softly speaking words I'd never heard before
And I told him how my Grandma said it troubled her mind so
Such a fine man wasn't washed in the blood of the lamb
He smiled and said "Tell Grandma if it pleases her to know
That She and I both pray to the God of Abraham"

Chorus

It's been so long now since I've left that hillside far behind
For a place I've never truly called my home
And more and more these days I see him walking in my mind
Through the misty mountain distance all alone

Mordecai was a wandering Jew, in my own way I am one too
I hope to make it home before I die
And if I should ever find my way I'll light a candle at his grave
And say one more goodbye to Mordecai
