#1.

          C                 Am
He took a hundred pounds of clay..
            Dm7         G7
and then He said, 'Hey, listen.'
          C                Am
I'm gonna fix this-a world today..
          Dm7         G7
because I know what's missin'.
        F                      G7
Then He rolled his big sleeves up..
      F               G7
and a brand-new world began.
   C         Am          Dm7     G7           C
He created a woman and a-lots of lovin' for a man,
        Am          F    G7
whoa-oh-oh, yes, he did..

#2.
            C                 Am
With just a hundred pounds of clay..
           Dm7        G7
He made my life worth livin'.
           C               Am
And I will thank Him every day..
          Dm7         G7
for every kiss you're givin'.
         F               G7
And I'll thank Him every night..
        F                 G7
for the arms that hold me tight.
       C      Am       Dm7    G7                C
And He did it all with just a hundred pounds of clay..
        Am                    C         
yes, He did, whoa-oh, yes, He did.


BRIDGE:
C                                    C#dim
Now can'tcha just see Him a-walkin' 'round and 'round,
Dm7                 G7
pickin' the clay up off the ground?
C                  C#dim
Doin' just what He should do,
   Dm7           G7
to make a livin' dream like you..

#3.
   F                      G7
He rolled His big sleeves up..
      F               G7
and a brand new world began.
   C         Am          Dm7     G7           C
He created a woman and a-lots of lovin' for a man.
        Am          F
whoa-oh-oh, yes, He did..

OUTRO:
F           G7                C

This can be made 'much' easier to play by transposing it -1 and just capoing the first fret. Happy playing.
