VERSE 1
A chord diagramC majorC+2               A chord diagramFF        A chord diagramG/BG/B
We rode into town the other day,
A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramC/EC/E         A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramG+G
    Just me and my daddy.
A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramFF       A chord diagramG/BG/B
He said I'd finally reached the age
A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramG minorGm  A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramFF        A chord diagramC/EC/E
And I could ride next to him on a horse
A chord diagramDmDm                      A chord diagramG/BG/B
That of course was not quite as wide
A chord diagramC/EC/E        A chord diagramFF         A chord diagramG/BG/B    A chord diagramC majorC
We heard a crowd of people shouting,
A chord diagramC/EC/E         A chord diagramFF         A chord diagramG/BG/B
And so we stopped to find out why.
A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramG minorGm  A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramFF           A chord diagramC/EC/E
There was that man that my dad said he loved
A chord diagramDmDm                             [A chord diagramGsusGsus A chord diagramF minorFm A chord diagramBb/DBb/D]
But today there was fear in his eyes.


CHORUS
A chord diagramEb MajorEb                  A chord diagramBb/DBb/D
So I said, "Daddy why are they screaming?
A chord diagramC minorCm                    A chord diagramEb/BbEb/Bb         A chord diagramEb/GEb/G
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
A chord diagramAbAb                        A chord diagramEb/GEb/G
Why is he dressed in that bright purple robe?
A chord diagramF minorFm                            A chord diagramAbAb            A chord diagramBb/DBb/D
I'll bet that crown hurts him more than he shows.
A chord diagramEb MajorEb                    A chord diagramBb/DBb/D
Daddy, please, can't you do something?
A chord diagramC minorCm               A chord diagramEb/GEb/G        A chord diagramF/AF/A
He looks as though he's gonna cry.
A chord diagramF minorFm                       A chord diagramEb/GEb/G
You said he was stronger than all of those guys.
A chord diagramAbAb           A chord diagramG/BG/B         A chord diagramC minorCm       A chord diagramEb/BbEb/Bb
Daddy please tell me why,
A chord diagramF minorFm       A chord diagramBb majorBb           A chord diagramEb MajorEb     [ A chord diagramDmDm A chord diagramG+G ]
Why does everyone want him to die "

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.
A chord diagramAbAb        A chord diagramG/BG/B    A chord diagramC minorCm  A chord diagramEb/BbEb/Bb      A chord diagramF minorFm      A chord diagramEb/GEb/G   A chord diagramF/AF/A
Father remind me why, why does everyone want me to die
A chord diagramC/DC/D       A chord diagramG minorGm         A chord diagramF/AF/A        A chord diagramG/BG/B   [A chord diagramBb/CBb/C  A chord diagramBb/DBb/D  A chord diagramC/EC/E]
Oh, when will I understand why?


CHORUS 3
A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramE minorEm        A chord diagramA augmentedA
My precious Son, I hear them screaming,
A chord diagramDmDm                        A chord diagramF/CF/C
and I'm watching the face of the enemy beaming.
A chord diagramBb majorBb                         A chord diagramDmDm
But soon I will clothe You in robes of my own.
A chord diagramG minorGm                        A chord diagramBb/DBb/D
Jesus, this hurts Me much more than You know.
A chord diagramC/EC/E           A chord diagramFF               A chord diagramEdimEdim
But this dark hour I must do  nothing
A chord diagramA7A7           A chord diagramDmDm           A chord diagramF/CF/C      A chord diagramG+G
Though I've heard Your unbearable cry.
A chord diagramG minorGm                          A chord diagramF/AF/A
The pow'r in Your blood destroys all of the lies.
A chord diagramBb majorBb                           A chord diagramDmDm
Soon You'll see past their unmerciful eyes.
A chord diagramG minorGm               A chord diagramBb/FBb/F   A chord diagramEdimEdim       A chord diagramA7A7
Look there below, see the child
A chord diagramDmDm                A chord diagramG7G7
Trembling by her father's side.
A chord diagramG minorGm                 A chord diagramF/AF/A        A chord diagramBb majorBb
Now I can tell You why,
A chord diagramBb/DBb/D       A chord diagramC7C7          A chord diagramDmDm      [A chord diagramBb majorBb]      [A chord diagramDmDm  A chord diagramF/AF/A]
She is why You must die.
