Verse 1:

Em           B7
 Hello Jesus,
Em              Bm
 Jesus children,
Em               B7
 Jesus loves you,
Em              Bm
 Jesus children.

Dm7    G7              Cmaj7           B7   Em  B7  Em, Bm
 Hello children, Jesus loves you, of A-meri-ca.

Em               B7
 Are you hearing;
Em                Bm
 What he's saying?
Em               B7
 Are you feeling;
Em                   Bm
 What you're praying?

Dm7      G7                Cmaj7            B7     Em    B7, Em
 Are you hearing, praying, feeling what you say in-side?

Chorus 1:

             Em         A7    Dm7    Cmaj7  B7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Em           A7      Dm7   Cmaj7  B7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...

Verse 2:

Em            B7
 Tell me holy,
Em           Bm
 Holy roller,
Em                B7
 Are you standing;
Em               Bm
 Like a soldier?

Dm7       G7          Cmaj7          B7     Em    B7  Em, Bm
 Are you standing for everything you talk a-bout?      (Say);

Em              B7
 Transcendental,
Em          Bm
 Meditation,
Em               B7
 Speaks of inner,
Em            Bm
 Preservation.

Dm7       G7          Cmaj7            B7       Em    B7, Em
 Transcen-dental medi-tation gives you peace of mind.

Chorus 2:

             Em         A7    Dm7    Cmaj7  B7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Em           A7      Dm7   Cmaj7  B7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...

Break:

Em
 Don't lie to 'em... don't you lie, don't lie to 'em.

*KEY CHANGE*

Bridge:

        Bm
Ooh, hu hu... uh uh uh...yeah.
Tell 'em; don't lie to 'em.
Tell 'em; don't lie to 'em. Tell 'em Jesus.

Verse 3:

Bm               F#7
  Tell me junkie;
Bm               F#m
  If you're able,
Bm                           F#7
  Are you playing your cards,
Bm              F#m
  On the table?

Am7       D7             Gmaj7          F#7     Bm    F#7, Bm  F#m
  Are you happy when you stick a needle in your vein?

Bm              F#7
  Jesus died on,
Bm              F#m
  Cross for you,
Bm             F#7
  Mary is just,
Bm               F#m
  Looking at you.

Am7      D7   Gmaj7 F#7
  Mother Mary feels,
        Bm   F#7      Bm
So much pain, looking at him.

Chorus 3:

             Bm         E7    Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Bm           E7      Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...

             Bm         E7    Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
You'd better tell, your story fast...
           Bm           E7      Am7   Gmaj7  F#7
And if you lie, it will come to pass...
