[Verse 1]
G
Well, it was battered and scarred
Bm
An the auctioneer felt
C                       D
It was hardly worth his while
 G                         Bm
To waste much time on the old violin
  C                        D
But he held it up with a smile
G
It sure ain't much
Bm
But it's all we got left
C                           D
I guess we ought to sell it too
G                                 Bm
Now who'll start the bid on this old violin
C                              G
Just one more and we'll be through

G
And then he cried

[Chorus]
G
One, give me one dollar
Bm
Who'll make it two
C
Only two dollars

Who'll make it three
D
Three dollars twice
D
Now that's a good price
C                       G
But who's got a bid for me

Raise up your hand
           Bm
And don't wait any longer
C
The auction's about to end
D
Who's got four

Just one dollar more
C         D         G
To bid on this old violin

[Verse 2]
G
Well the air was hot
Bm
And the people stood around
C                       G
As the sun was setting low
                             Bm
From the back of the crowd a gray-haired man

C                           D
Came forward, picked up the bow
G                          Bm
He wiped the dust from the old violin
C                    D
And tightened up the strings
G                           Bm
Then he played out a melody pure and sweet
C                       G
sweeter than the angels sing

D
And then the music stopped
C                          G
And the auctioneer with a voice that was quiet and low
        D                            Bm
He said What am I bid for this old violin
        C                  D   E  Esus
Then he held it up with a bow

[Chorus 2]
                      A
And then he cried out one give me one thousand,
C#m                            D
Who’ll make it two only two thousand who’ll make it three,
E
Three thousand twice you know that’s a good price,
D                         A
Common who’s gonna bid for me?
                              C#m             D
And the people cried out what made the change we don’t understand,
       E
Then the auctioneer stopped and he said with a smile,
D                       Dmaj7    A
It was the touch of the Master’s hand

[Verse 3]
A
Now you know
                  C#m
Many a man with a life out of tune
D                            A
Is battered and scarred with sin
                                   C#m
And he's auctioned cheap to a thankless world
D                   E
Much like that old violin
A                              C#m
Then the master comes and the foolish crowd
D           E
They never understand
A
The worth of a soul
C#m
And the change that is wrought
           D        Dmaj7          A     C#m
Just by one touch of the Master's hand
C#m         D            Dmaj7     A   E   Esus  A
The saving touch of the Master’s hand
