THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER


CAPO: 2nd FRET/KEY: A/PLAY: G
[G] Here's a [G7] sad, but true [C] story - from the Bible it [G] came
Was a chosen dis-[D] ciple - tho' I mention no [G] name
He plan-[G7] ed with the [C] counsel - a pact reached that [G] day
Thirty Pieces Of [D] Silver - was the price they would [G] pay.

CHORUS
[G] Thirty [G7] Pieces Of [C] Silver - thirty shekels of [G] shame
Was the price paid for [D] Jesus - on the cross He was [G] slain
Betray-[G7] ed and for-[C] saken - unloved and un-[G] claimed
In anger they [D] pierced Him - but He died not in [G] vain.

While there on the hilllside - the multitudes came
And found our dear Saviour - then they took Him away
They smote Him and mocked Him - for the crown 'round His head
And His rainment of purple - showed the blood stains of red.

CHORUS

Far off in the mountains - with face toward the sun
Judas begged mercy - for what he had done
He gave back the silver - for his heart filled with strife
And there in the mountains - he took his own life.

CHORUS
