Gods Song

Randy Newman

-----------------------------------------................


 Am
  Cain slew Abel;
Seth knew not why.
 Dm
  For if the.
Children of Israel,
 Am
Were to multi-ply;
 E7
Why must any of,
 AmE7Am
The child-ren die?
So he asked the Lord,
 E
  And the Lord said;

Chorus 1:

 AmE7
  Man means nothing,
 AmE7AmA7
He means less to me,  
 Dm
  Than the lowliest,
 A7
  Cactus flower,
 DmA7Dm
Or the humblest Yucca tree.

 AmE7
He chases round this desert,
 Am
'Cos he thinks,
 C7F7
That's where I'll be;
 AmE7AmE7
  That's why I love man-kind. 

 AmE7
  I recoil in horror,
 AmE7AmA7
From the foul-ness of thee.  
 DmA7
  From the squalor and the filth,
 DmA7Dm
  And the mise-ry.
 AmE7
How we laugh up in here in heaven,
 AmC7F7
At the prayers you offer me;
 AmE7AmE7
  That's why I love man-kind. 

Verse 2:

 Am
  The Christians and the Jews,
Were having a jamboree,
 Dm
  The Buddhists and the Hindu's,
 Am
Joined on satellite TV.
They picked their,
 E7
  Four greatest priests,
 AmE7Am
And they be-gan to speak;
They said;

 Am
  "Lord, a plague is on the world,
Lord, no man is free,
 Dm
The temples that we built to you,
 Am
Have tumbled into the sea.
 E7
Lord, if you won't take care of us;
 Am
Won't you please,
 E7Am
Please let us be?"
 AmE
And the Lord said,  
 CE
And the Lord said;  

Chorus 2:

 Am
  I burn down your cities,
 E7AmA7
How blind you must be.  
 DmA7
  I take from you your children,
And you say;
 DmA7Dm
  "How blessed are we".
 AmE7
  You all must be crazy,
 AmC7F7
To put your faith in me;

 AmE7Am
  That's why I love man-kind;
 Dm
You really need me,
 AmE7Am
  That's why I love man-kind.
