Nog even luisteren naar Larry Norman

I WISH WE'D ALL BEEN READY




THE OUTLAW




"I wish we'd all been ready" was samen met "The Outlaw" een van de bekendste songs van Larry Norman die afgelopen zondag overleed. Daarom heb ik beide liedjes nog eens opgezocht op Youtube.

Hieronder de lyrics van "The Outlaw", met de gitaarakkoorden ertussen.

INTRO: G G/C G G/C G G/C G G/C

Some [G]say He was an [G/C]outlaw, that He roamed across the [G]land
With a [D]band of unschooled ruffians and a [C]few old fishermen
No one [G]knew just where He [G/C]came from or exactly what He'd
[G]done
But they [D]said it must be something bad that [F]kept Him on the
[C]run.[G] [G/C] [G] [G/C]

Some [G]say He was a [G/C]poet that He'd stand upon the [G]hill
And his [D]voice could calm an angry crowd or [C]make the waves stand still
That He [G]spoke in many [G/C]parables that few could under-[G]stand
But the [D]people sat for hours just to [F]listen to this [C]man.[G]
[G/C] [G] [G/C]

Some [G]say He was a [G/C]sorcerer a man of myste-[G]ry
He could [D]walk upon the water. He could [C]make a blind man see.
That He [G]conjured wine at [G/C]weddings and did tricks with fish
and [G]bread.
That He [D]talked of being born again and raised [F]people from the
[C]dead.[G] [G/C] [G] [G/C]

1ST BREAK: G G/C G G/C D C G G/C G G/C D F C G

Some [G]say a poli-[G/C]tician who spoke of being [G]free
He was [D]followed by the masses on the [C]shores of Galilee
He spoke [G]out against corrup-[G/C]tion and He bowed to no de-
[G]cree
And they [D]feared His strength and power so they [F]nailed Him to a
[C]tree.[G] [G/C]

2ND BREAK: C6 D7 Em6 C G6 Em Am Am6 G

Some [G]say He was the [G/C]Son of God a man above all [G]men
But He [D]came to be a servant and to [C]set us free from sin
And [G]that's who I be-[G/C]lieve He was 'cause that's who I be-
[G]lieve
And I [D]think we should get ready 'cause it's [F]time for us to
[C]leave.[G]

ENDING: C6 D7 Em6 C G6 Em Am Am6 G
