========================

Here are the chords. The recorded version by The Stanley Brothers
has the song in the key of F#, but with the capo on the 4th fret,
you can just play D, G, and A.

Capo on the 4th fret.

Verse 1
It's a [D]story so unkind in the H[G]oly Book we [D]find,
And it tells how Jesus stood alone one d[A]ay.
False acc[D]used and there condemned,
Yet they [G]found no fault with [D]Him.
The man who wore the s[A]carlet purple [D]ro[G]be[D].

Chorus:
[D]Purple robe my Savior wore, oh the[G] shame for me He[D] bore,
As He stood alone forsaken, on that [A]day.
And they [D]placed upon His head, piercing t[G]horns of blood stained [D]red.
His raiment was a sc[A]arlet purple r[D]ob[G]e.[D]

Verse 2:
In the c[D]ommon judgement hall, He was [G]mocked and scorned by [D]all.
And the tears of sorrow fell upon His ch[A]eek,
Soldiers [D]of the wicked man, smote Him [G]with their evil [D]hand
The man who wore the s[A]carlet purple [D]ro[G]be[D].

Verse 3:
Words of [D]truth that day were plain, from the [G]lips of Pilate c[D]ame.
In this man I find no reason He should [A]die.
But the m[D]ultitude then cried, "Let Him [G]now be cruci[D]fied,"
The Man who wore the s[A]carlet purple [D]ro[G]be[D].
