Words and Music by Keith Green
on The Prodigal Son by Keith Green

[Verse 1]

NC    Am F          Am                   F
Oh my son, you were born in a world that hates you
      Am                     F
And I swear I will never forsake you
     C          G      F
But there was a Father centuries ago
    C             G         F D      F G
Who watched his beloved Son die, oh, die

[Verse 2]

      Am F      Am           F
Oh my son, I am weak and I'm trembling
        Am                  F
For the Lord I am always remembering
   C             G              F
Oh what a strong Shepherd holds you in his arms
      C             G            F D                    F G
He'll break you and make you his own, and then take you home

[Chorus]

    C                                   F             G
But if I could I would protect you from what you will see
     C                                      F          Fm
This world may promise love and beauty, but it lied to me
           C                     D
And I will show you, if you will listen
           F      G            C
And I will promise to listen, too

[Bridge]
   F                                C
Oh yes, there are some who love the lies
                           F
They will kill you if they can
                                 C
Though you speak the truth with love
                            F
They will hate you like the man Jesus
    Em                     F                       G
Although he was God, he allowed himself broken for you

       F                       G
Oh, allowed himself broken for you

[Chorus]
    C                                   F             G
And if I could I would protect you from what you will see
     C                                   F            Fm
This world just might seem so alive, but it's dead to me
           C                      D
And I will teach you, if you will hear me
           F                    C
And I will promise to hear you, too
       F   G
Yes, I do

[Verse 3]

      Am F Am             F
Oh my son, I am only your brother
      Am                       F
For a sister, God gave me your mother
     C          G      F
But just like a mother so long ago
       C           G         F    D
Had to watch her beloved son die, die
                F              G  Am
Oh son, we will try to let you go
