The Young Man Chords

The Young Man Chords (Transposable):

 
Verse 1
C5
All on a Friday evening as the sun went down
C5
The body of a man who wore a thorn made crown
C5
Was carried to a graveyard in the fading light
C5
And laid with deep affection in a garden

Verse 2
C5
Up on the hill the shadow of his gallows fell
C5
And d as the sun descended lower still
C5
The ground was worn and bare where many feet had trod
C5
To watch the execution of the young man

Chorus
C5 [with choral chordings]
C G C G C F G C
And what of me so dis-tant from that far gone place
F C Dm C Dm G C Dm Am G
Still the wonder of that moment crosses and space
G C G C G C F G Am
With mystery and majesty none can explain
F C Dm C Dm C G C G Dm Dm-C
For it draws me to the story of the young ma-an

Verse 3
C F C
The next day being Sabbath was a day of rest

No longer messianic zeal consumed their hearts

Just sorrow for the killing of the young man

And I suppose some tears were shed 'til sleep came last

Then rising early morning once the Sabbath passed

A woman made her way to find the garden tomb
C F C C
To leave some oil and flowers for the young man

Verse 5
C F C
Now history tells of heavy stone to bar the way
G C F C F2 C
Was fixed by many soldiers on the open grave
C F C
For when she found it rolled aside an emptied tomb
C
She grieved the stolen body of the young man

Verse 6
C F C Dm C
A gardener called her by her name as she kneeled down
C F C
And asked her why she searched about the burial ground
C F C Dm C
And wiping bitter tears away with the dawn's first light
C Dm C C
She saw the risen glory of the young man
