Big Tent Revival

This is a really cool song, message wise, this isn't exactly how it's
played on the record, but I haven't taken the time to transcribe it note
for note, given how long it takes me to import a single line on my Mac. 
If you want to know how to play these chords, as they may look
intimidating for some, or have corrections, E Mail me SChrist913@aol.com
I play this two ways, depending on my mood. The real song I believe, is
played with a capo at the 4th fret. 


  E (022100@1)          B/D# (x2544x@1)      C#m (x13321@4)         BThis (x2444x@1)here's a story about two sets of Joneses
     E (022100@1)     B/D# (x2544x@1) C#m (x13321@4)      BRothschild, (x2444x@1)Evelyn Reuben and Sue
    E (022100@1)      B/D# (x2544x@1)            C#m (x13321@4)   BJust (x2444x@1)for discussion, through random selection
        A/E (002220@1)      B (x2444x@1)         A/E (002220@1)     EWe've (022100@1)chosen two couples who haven't a clue

Rothschild was lucky to marry so wealthy
And Evelyn bought him a house on the beach
Reuben and Sue, they had nothin' but Jesus
And at night they would pray that He'd care for them each


          C#m (x13321@4)A/E (002220@1) EAnd (022100@1)the rains came down
       C#m (x13321@4)     A/E (002220@1)      E (022100@1)
And it blew the four walls down
         C#m (x13321@4)       A/E (002220@1)  E (022100@1) C#mAnd (x13321@4)the skies they rolled away
A/E (002220@1)        BOne (x2444x@1)set of Joneses
A/E (002220@1)               EWere (022100@1)standing that day

Evelyn's daddy was proud of young Rothschild
Worked the late hours to 
be number one
Just newlyweds, and their marriage got rocky
He's flying to Dallas, she's having a son

Reuben was holding Gideons Bible
When he screamed "It's a boy!" so that everyone heard
And the guys at the factory, took a collection...
And again, God provided for bills they'd incurred

CHORUS again

Amaj7 (x02120@1)                      ESo (022100@1)what is the point of my story?
Amaj7 (x02120@1)              EWhat (022100@1)am I trying to say?
      E (022100@1)           E/D# (021100@1)     C#m (x13321@4)           C#m/B
Well is your life built on the Rock of Christ Jesus
       BOr (x2444x@1)a sandy foundation you've managed to lay?

Well needless to say, Evelyn left her husband
And sued him for every penny he had
I truly wish that those two would find Jesus
Before things get worse than the already have


        A/E (002220@1)          BThere's (x2444x@1)two sets of Joneses
       A/E (002220@1)   B (x2444x@1)         EWhich (022100@1)one.....will.....you be?
