A Little Story

Daniel Johnston

 C
 There was this big Guy
 C7F
And He had a great idea.
 C
He built Himself a world
 G
And He put people on it.

 C
But the people they turned wicked,
 C7F
 And they soon forgot
 C
Who had made their very being
 G
And put them on their planet.

 C
So the God He sent His very own Son,
 C7F
His only holy Son.
 C
And He sent Him to the world
 G
'cause something had to be done.
 C
 His son walked around and He told the truth
 C7F
 Like the truth had never been told.
 C
He was kind to the poor,
 G
His home was the road.

 C
 Unlike any other heroes
 C7F
 Of which a song could be sung,
 C
He never did bad to anyone.
 G
He never did no harm.

 C
 But there were other people who weren't so nice
 C7F
 And they plotted to take His life
 C
And the Man knew all about it
 G
But He didn't even hide.

 C
 And they beat Him and they robbed Him
 C7F
 And they hung Him for bein' good.
 C
And they laughed and made jokes
 G
While they stood in his blood.

 C
 But there's a happy ending to the story.
 C7F
 I think you'll be glad to know
 C
He came back to life in glory,
 G
And up from the grave He arose.

 C
 So before you turn out your light,
 C7F
 Remember this one Man
 C
Who lived comfortably in heaven
 G
But gave it all up to hang on a cross.

 C
 Because He hung for you and me
 C7F
 And He came to set us free.
 C
'Cause his Dad had a great idea
 GC
About the way things ought to be.
