VERSE 2 (same chords as VERSE 1) Later that day the sky grew cloudy And Daddy said I should go inside. Somehow he knew things could get stormy. Boy, was he right! But I could not keep from wonderin' If there was something he had to hide So after he left I had to find out. I was not afraid of getting lost. So I followed the crowds to a hill where I knew men had been killed, And I heard a voice call from the cross CHORUS 2 (same chords except where noted) And he said, "Father why are they screaming? Why are the faces of some of them beaming? Why are they casting their lots for my robe? This crown of thorns hurts me more than it shows. Father, please, can't You do something? I know that You must hear my cry. I thought I could handle a cross of this size.

G minorGm Bb/FBb/F EdimEdim A7A7 Look there below, see the child DmDm G7G7 Trembling by her father's side. G minorGm F/AF/A Bb majorBb Now I can tell You why, Bb/DBb/D C7C7 DmDm [Bb majorBb] [DmDm F/AF/A] She is why You must die. [Bb majorBb C/EC/E] [D MajorD]
