A chord diagramAA wino we called Charley had a picture
                                      G# chord diagramG#G#
That he wore around his neck upon a chain
          C# chord diagramC#C#              F# chord diagramF#F#                 C# chord diagramC#C#
But you couldn't see the face in Charley's picture
                            G# chord diagramG#G#          C# chord diagramC#C#
Just long brown hair and a poem in the frame

C# chord diagramC#C#                    F# chord diagramF#F#                  C# chord diagramC#C#
We tried and tried to see old Charley's picture
                                         G# chord diagramG#G#
But we couldn't even tempt him with the wine
      C# chord diagramC#C#                  F# chord diagramF#F#               C# chord diagramC#C#
His shaking hands would tightly grip the picture
                     G# chord diagramG#G#            C# chord diagramC#C#
And he'd recite the poem one more time

C# chord diagramC#C#                         F# chord diagramF#F#         C# chord diagramC#C#
You grace this frame the picture of affection
                                    G# chord diagramG#G#
While I'm the perfect picture of disgrace
     C# chord diagramC#C#                  F# chord diagramF#F#              C# chord diagramC#C#
And upon your name I'll swear until I'm worthy
                     G# chord diagramG#G#             C chord diagramCC   A chord diagramAA
I forbid my eyes to look upon your face

Old Charley froze to death one Sunday morning
                                       A chord diagramAA
We found him and I guess you know the rest
      D chord diagramDD                G chord diagramGG              D chord diagramDD
Some-one removed the poem from his picture
                             A chord diagramAA               D chord diagramDD
And the chilling truth lay framed upon his chest

(Spoken ? Same Chord Progression as above)

As I knelt beside his body the picture

Lay there before my anxious eyes

And with trembling lips I whispered the words of Charley's poem

As I stared into the face of Jesus Christ

D chord diagramDD                          G chord diagramGG          D chord diagramDD
You grace this frame the picture of affection
                                    A chord diagramAA
While I'm the perfect picture of disgrace
                          G chord diagramGG               D chord diagramDD
And upon your name I'll swear until I'm worthy
                     A chord diagramAA              D chord diagramDD
I forbid my eyes to look upon your face
