A Little Story  Daniel Johnston














[C]There was this big Guy
And He [C7]had a great [F]idea.
He [C]built Himself a world
And He put people on [G]it.

But the [C]people they turned wicked,
[C7]And they soon [F]forgot
Who had [C]made their very being
And put them on their [G]planet.

So the [C]God He sent His very own Son,
His [C7]only holy [F]Son.
And He [C]sent Him to the world
'cause something had to be [G]done.
[C]His son walked around and He told the truth
[C7]Like the truth had never been [F]told.
He was [C]kind to the poor,
His home was the [G]road.

[C]Unlike any other heroes
[C7]Of which a song could be [F]sung,
He never [C]did bad to anyone.
He never did no [G]harm.

[C]But there were other people who weren't so nice
[C7]And they plotted to take His [F]life
And the [C]Man knew all about it
But He didn't even [G]hide.

[C]And they beat Him and they robbed Him
[C7]And they hung Him for bein' [F]good.
And they [C]laughed and made jokes
While they stood in his [G]blood.


[C]But there's a happy ending to the story.
[C7]I think you'll be glad to [F]know
He came [C]back to life in glory,
And up from the grave He [G]arose.

[C]So before you turn out your light,
[C7]Remember this one [F]Man
Who lived [C]comfortably in heaven
But gave it all up to hang on a [G]cross.

[C]Because He hung for you and me
[C7]And He came to set us [F]free.
'Cause his [C]Dad had a great idea
About the way things ought to [G]be.[C]
