    Intro:  Main Progression x2


    G        Cadd9      D   (Cadd9)

       Hey Jesus it’s me

    G                 Cadd9       D   (Cadd9)
      I don’t usually talk to you

    G               Cadd9           D                      (Cadd9)
        But my baby’s gonna leave me and there’s something you must

    G        (Cadd9)       D   (Cadd9)


            Cadd9     D        Em   (Em9)
    I am not your faithful servant

                  Cadd9                          D                            Em   (Em9)
    I hang around sometimes with a bunch of your black sheep

                      F                    C                               Am7 (2)
    But if you make my baby stay, I’ll make it up to you

                       Am7    D        F#sus4  (F#m)  Em9 (2)   Dadd4/C (2)
    And that’s a promise I will keep




    G         Cadd9      D   (Cadd9)
        Hey Jesus it’s me

    G                          Cadd9                        D   (Cadd9)
         I’m the one who talked to you yesterday

    G                           Cadd9                   D  (Cadd9)
       And I asked you please please for a favor but my baby’s gone

        G    (Cadd9)                    D   (Cadd9)
    away,          went away anyway


              Cadd9         D         Em   (Em9)
    And I don’t really think it’s fair

                            Cadd9                 D                 Em   (Em9)
    You’ve got the power to make us all believe in you
                         F        C                Am7  (D7) (hold)

    And then we call you in our despair
                                      F#sus4  (F#m)  Em9 (2)   Dadd4/C (2)

    And you don’t come through

    G         Cadd9      D   (Cadd9)
       Hey Jesus it’s me--I’m sorry

    G                   Cadd9         D   (Cadd9)
         I don’t remember all I said

    G                   Cadd9      D          (Cadd9)
         I had a few, no, too many and they went straight to my

    G                 Cadd9                                          D   (Cadd9)

    head, and made me feel like I could argue with god


                                Cadd9      D                             Em                  (Em9)
    But you know it’s easy for you--You got friends all over the world

                         Cadd9         D                Em   (Em9)
    You had the whole world waiting for your birth

                  F       C        Am7 (hold)           (D7) (hold)
    But now I ain’t got nobody-- I don’t know what my life’s

     F#sus4  (F#m)  Em9 (2)   Dadd4/C (2)

    G                        Cadd9                D   (Cadd9)
        I’m not gonna call on you any more

    G                                     Cadd9             D   (Cadd9)
        I’m sure you’ve got a million things to do

    G   Cadd9                     D              (Cadd9)
    All          I was trying to do was to get through to

    G       Cadd9             D    (Cadd9)

    you, Get through to you


                             Cadd9    D                     Em   (Em9)
    Because when I die and I get up to your doors

                         Cadd9                     D           Em   (Em9)
    I don’t even know if you’re gonna let me in the place

              F                C                                Am7       (D7) (hold)
    How come I gotta die to get a chance to talk to you

                F#sus4  (F#m)  Em9 (2)   Dadd4/C (2)
    face to face?


    End on G
