THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER

CAPO: 2nd FRET/KEY: A/PLAY: G
 GG7CG
  Here's a  sad, but true  story - from the Bible it  came
 DG
Was a chosen dis- ciple - tho' I mention no  name
 G7CG
He plan- ed with the  counsel - a pact reached that  day
 DG
Thirty Pieces Of  Silver - was the price they would  pay.

CHORUS
 GG7CG
  Thirty  Pieces Of  Silver - thirty shekels of  shame
 DG
Was the price paid for  Jesus - on the cross He was  slain
 G7CG
Betray- ed and for- saken - unloved and un- claimed
 DG
In anger they  pierced Him - but He died not in  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
