Virgil and the Holy Ghost  Paul Brandt

Intro D A G D A
[D]Me and Virgil best of friend
[A]brothers 'til the very end
made a p[G]act one sunny afternoon
down [D]by cold pepper c[A]reek
[D]Fishing holes, skippin' rocks
[A]down the railroad tracks we'd talk
about g[G]irls and cars and hopes and dreams
the [D]way our lives would [A]be
and we s[Bm]wore we'd ne[A]ver c[G]hange
and it would a[Bm]lways b[A]e the s[G]ame.
[D]Virgil met the Holy Ghost
a [A]little younger than most
at the [G]gilappi pentacostal
tent [D]revival halter [A]call
E[D]veryone in town was there that day
V[A]irgil gave his soul away
they were[G] praising as I waited
ou[D]tside the gospel [A]hall
And we [Bm]swore we'd n[A]ever ch[G]ange
but it would n[Bm]ever b[A]e the [G]same
Cause it was l[D]ater on that year
the winter [A]that our mama died
when I told [Bm]Virgil I don't wanna hear
about[G] love and peace inside
cause if this [D]God you know is good
how can [A]he allow the pain
life's been [Bm]hard enough
so why would I want [G]to be born agai[D]n [A] [Bm] [G] [D] [A] [Bm] [G]
The other n[D]ight me and Virgil spoke
he t[A]ravels with the Holy Ghost
h[G]olding tent revivals
he's [D]out to seek and s[A]ave
[D]Virgil says he's been set free
by J[A]esus dying on the tree
but [G]I'm not sure what I believe
my [D]questions still [A]remain
Virgil [Bm]says that w[A]hen he p[G]rays
he asks the [Bm]Lord that I[A]'d be s[G]aved
I guess [Bm]some things ne[A]ver c[G]hange
[D] [A] [Bm] [G] [A] [D]
