 Hello Jesus,
Em              Bm
 Jesus children,

 Jesus loves you,

 Jesus children.

 Hello children, Jesus loves you, of A-meri-ca.

Em               B7
 Are you hearing;
Em                Bm
 What he's saying?
Em               B7
 Are you feeling;
Em                   Bm
 What you're praying?

Dm7      G7                Cmaj7            B7     Em    B7, Em
 Are you hearing, praying, feeling what you say in-side?

Chorus 1:

             Em         A7    Dm7    Cmaj7  B7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Em           A7      Dm7   Cmaj7  B7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...

 Tell me holy,
Em           Bm
 Holy roller,
Em                B7
 Are you standing;
Em               Bm
 Like a soldier?

Dm7       G7          Cmaj7          B7     Em    B7  Em, Bm
 Are you standing for everything you talk a-bout?      (Say);

Em              B7
 Transcendental,
Em          Bm
 Meditation,
Em               B7
 Speaks of inner,
Em            Bm
 Preservation.

Dm7       G7          Cmaj7            B7       Em    B7, Em
 Transcen-dental medi-tation gives you peace of mind.

Chorus 2:

             Em         A7    Dm7    Cmaj7  B7
You'd better tell, your story fast...

And if you lie, it will come to pass...

Tell 'em; don't lie to 'em. Tell 'em Jesus.

Verse 3:

Bm               F#7
  Tell me junkie;
Bm               F#m
  If you're able,
Bm                           F#7
  Are you playing your cards,
Bm              F#m
  On the table?

Am7       D7             Gmaj7          F#7     Bm    F#7, Bm  F#m
  Are you happy when you stick a needle in your vein?

Bm              F#7
  Jesus died on,
Bm              F#m
  Cross for you,
Bm             F#7
  Mary is just,
Bm               F#m
  Looking at you.

Am7      D7   Gmaj7 F#7
  Mother Mary feels,
        Bm   F#7      Bm
So much pain, looking at him.

Chorus 3:

             Bm         E7    Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Bm           E7      Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...

             Bm         E7    Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Bm           E7      Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...
