Pilate’s Lament (By John And Sheila Ludgate)

[Intro:] Am F C G Em - F C G Am

Am      F                C             G               Em
I don’t understand these people, their rules and their laws
    F           C                  G              Am
And who is this man, they claim he calls himself God
F         C       G             Em
Quiet but clever, I can find no wrong
         F                C                   G                 Am
But the sooner I let them have their way, the sooner they’ll be gone

  F          C                 G                 Em
I wish I was back in Rome, far from this peasant crowd
        F            C               G              Am 
At the centre of the world, with the beautiful, the proud
    F            C        G            Em
The emperor, the court, a chance to be seen
    F                  C                   G                 Am 
But until I’m done I’m stuck here, dealing with these no-win scenes


     G                     Am            G               Am 
So I wash my hands of this case, in this sad and strange land
         G               Am                Dm             Am
But I’ve somehow become guilty, this man’s blood is on my hands
            F             C             G               Em
Now I’m the ruler who did nothing, just let the deed be done
      Dm        Am                 G          Am
I’ve become the accused, history’s unforgiven one

[Instrumental:]  Verse Progression

      F                         C                    G             Em
These people have pushed me too far, I’ll make their victory their loss
     F                     C                G             Am
They want me to change the words that I’ve placed on that cross
  F           C                     G                Em
“King of the Jews”, was I driven by anger or by the divine
          F                 C                      G               Am
Well I’ve written what I’ve written, now we’ll all live with that line.

Repeat Chorus 
          F             C             G               Em
…I’m the ruler who did nothing, just let the deed be done
        Dm                  Am         G             Am
Now the stone’s been rolled away, and I’m the guilty one
