         F#m7      E       F#m7............

F#m7                                                     D

F#m7                                           D
Woman hold her head and cry, explaining to
C#m         E         D                     C#m    F#m7
her was a passerby, who saw the woman cry.......wondering
F#m7                                         D
How can she work it out, now she knows that the
C#m7     E       D                     C#m   F#m7
wages of sin is death, oh gift of Jah is life (life).........she cried

A      Bm7   C#m7  Bm7                          A             Bm7
Oh,   oh,      I         know,    Johnny was a good man,
C#m7  Bm7                         A               Bm7
C#m7   Bm7
I          know,  Johnny was a good, good, good, good, good, ooo oh
A          Bm7   C#m7      Bm7       F#m7.............
She cried,           She cried-------

Woman hold her head and cry, cause her son had been
Shot down in the street and die, just because of the system

Woman hold her head and cry, comforting her I was
Passing by, she complained, then she cried......she cried

(repeat chorus as above)

Thanks, Bob.
