Jesus Christ
By Woody Guthrie


Verse 1:

G                           C                    
Jesus Christ was a man that traveled through the land
G                    D
Hard working man and brave
G                               C            
He said to the rich, "Give your goods to the poor."
        G          D             G
So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave


Chorus:

     C                  G
Yes, Jesus was a man, a carpenter by hand
                       D
His followers true and brave
G                       C            
One dirty coward called Judas Iscariot
    G         D            G
Has laid poor Jesus in his grave


Verse 2:

G                           C                    
He went to the preacher, he went to the sheriff
G                    D
Told them all the same
G                               C            
Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the Poor
        G          D             G
So, they laid Jesus Christ in his grave


Verse 3:

G                           C                    
When Jesus come to town, the working folks around
G                    D
Believed what he did say
G                               C            
The bankers and the preachers they nailed him on a cross
        G          D             G
And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave


Verse 4:

G                           C                    
Now, the working people, follered him around
G                    D
Sing and shouted "Gay"
G                               C            
But the Cops and the soldiers, nailed him in the air
        G          D             G
And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave


Verse 5:

G                           C                    
Well the people held their breath when they heard about his death
G                    D
Everybody wondered why
G                               C            
It  was the landlord and the soldiers that he hired
        G          D             G
That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky


Verse 6:

G                           C                    
This song was made in New York City
G                    D
Of rich mans, and preachers, and slaves
G                               C            
If Jesus was to preach like he preached in Galillee
        G          D             G
They would lay Jesus Christ in his grave


Chorus:

     C                  G
Yes, Jesus was a man, and a carpenter by hand
                       D
His followers true and brave
G                       C            
One dirty coward called Judas Iscariot
    G         D            G
Has laid poor Jesus in his grave
