Intro: F#


Verse 1:
F#
Jesus and Mary walkin' hand in hand
          Ab
Down the shores of the Galilee fishermen
          B
Telling a story about the future
        C#                    F#
In the present day kingdom come

F#
Mary said Jesus will I be okay?
         Ab
I got a feelin' when you leave that things are gonna change
B                                    C#                   F#
Everybody that I know don't seem to treat me as good as you

F#
He skipped a stone into the sea
             Ab
But then he laughed and shaked his head 
 
turned around in time to see 
          B
that the eyes of his beloved were 
      C#                        F#
just fillin' up with child's tears


Chorus 1:
C#
He said baby don't you worry
         B                   F#
about a thing that comes to pass 
Ab
You got a seed of heaven planted
C#                   F#
Deep inside of your soul

C#
And if you need somethin'
         B             F#
All you have to do is ask
  Ab                 C#
And I'll know, I'll know


Verse 2:
F#
Later that week up in Jerusalem
                Ab
They caught a dinner and a show after the setting sun
                  B
Then climbed the hillside just in time to see
     C#                  F#
The moon rise full and red

F#
Jesus said Mary will I be okay?
          Ab
I got a feeling somethin's happenin' just today
   B
I overheard a group of fellas 
         C#                      F#
Talkin' how they're gonna do me in

F#
She picked a fig off of the tree
                        Ab
Their lives together flashed before her eyes
             
She turned around in time to see 
          B
That the eyes of her beloved were
       C#                       F#
Just filling up with child's tears


Chorus 2:
C#
She said baby don't you worry
         B                   F#
About a thing that comes to pass
             Ab                     C#
You are the seed of heaven planted deep 
               F#
Inside this world

C#
And if you need somethin'
         B             F#
All you have to do is ask
    Ab         C#   
And I'll go, I'll go


Verse 3:
F#
Later that week after the burial
            Ab
All of the brothers and the sisters

Went back to their homes
            B
But little Mary with the vigil was crying
C#                           F#
At the grave of her best friend

F#
Why do you weep as if I'm dead?
                      Ab
The voice behind her cut right through the air
             B
She turned around and saw the friend
          B                           C#
Running back into his arms they just laughed
                      F#
She kissed his scars smilin'


Chorus 3:
C#
He said baby don't you worry
         B                   F#
About a thing that comes to pass
           Ab                      C#
You got a seed of heaven planted deep 
              F#
inside your soul

C#
And if you need somethin'
         B             F#
All you have to do is ask
     Ab          C#
And I'll know, I'll know

F#
Jesus and Mary walking hand in hand 
          Ab
Down the shore of the Galilee fishermen
             B
Tellin' the story about the future
         C#                 F#
In the present day kingdom come


There you are. Enjoy.
