ON THE ROAD TO CALVARY by Richie Havens 6th trac on Wishing Well CD
A       Amaj7                Dsus2       A
I saw St.Christopher walking downtown on main,
A          Amaj7           Dsus2       E,E4,E7
with Black Madonna fingers holding the flame,
A        Amaj7      Dsus2            A 
I saw an eagle rise,right out of the blue
A         Amaj7     Dsus2             A
I heard a car crash,it reminded me of you.

A       Amaj7          Dsus2      A
I saw a baby starve in South Africa,
A         Amaj7,Dsus2                      E,E4,E7
too weak to cry,her tears rolled down into straw.
A        Amaj7        Dsus2     A
I saw an orphan give a vagabond try,
A            Amaj7  Dsus2  A   
just at that moment I realized.

A        C#m,D                  A
You carry me across the smiling river,
A          C#m D                E,E4,E7 
You lift me up above the raging sea,
A            C#m  D                  A
You bring me home this love that you deliver,
A           C#m
straight to my back porch 
D                  A
on the road to Calvary.

A        Amaj7             Dsus2        A
I seen a rich man with his bracelets of gold.
A             Amaj7        Dsus2     E,E4,E7
Four cars and a yacht and a mistress untold.
A             Amaj7         Dsus2        A
Somewhere the restless wind blows out to sea,
A               Amaj7          Dsus2       A
somewhere there is a place for you and for me.
A         C#m,D                 A
You carry me across the smiling river,
A          C#m,D                E,E4,E7
you lift me up above the raging sea,
A            C#m  D                  A
you bring me home this love that you deliver.
A              C#m
Straight to my back porch
       D           A
on the road to Calvary.
A              C#m
Straight to my back porch
D                  A
on the road to calvary.
A         Amaj7     Dsus2            A
So if you wondering where I was last night,
A           Amaj7         Dsus2           E,E4,E7
well, Black Madonna, yea, She gave me the light.
A                Amaj7     Dsus2          A 
I guess it’s not much more that I have to say,
A           Amaj7        Dsus2            A
Just tell St.Christopher we’re all on our way,
A      Amaj7        Dsus2            A  
tell St.Christopher we’re all on our way.
A                Em6/C# A
We’re all on our way.
