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.
