Song of Solomon The Statler Brothers
[F] [F] [F]
[F]The Lord appeared to Solomon
And asked him in his [C]dream
Just what would you [C]want
If I would grant you any[F]thing
[F]King Solomon said to the Lord
On riches I won't d[C]well
Just grant to me the[C] wisdom Lord
To lead Your people [F]well
[F]When he woke the Lord had blessed
The throne on which [C]he sat
And nobody ev[C]er caught him
Sleepin' after [F]that
[F]People heard about him
And came from far and[C] wide
He'd lay his words o[C]f wisdom on
And open up their [F]eyes
[F]And didn't Solomon have it all together?
Didn't Solomon lead his people [C]well?
[F]Didn't Solomon have all together?
[F]Don't his words ring clearly as a bell?
[F] [F] [F] [C] [F] [D]
[G]Two women came to Solomon
Both had given [D]birth
I'm troubled though dear [D]kindly king
Please help me said the f[G]irst
One night while [G]I lay sleeping
This womans baby d[D]ied
She laid it's body o[D]n my bosom
Trading it for m[G]ine
[G]The other woman said to him
That it was not [D]true
[G]And Solomon said bring the child
I'll tell you what we'll [G]do
We'll divide [G]him with a sword
And half to each d[D]isperse
The real mother [D]cried, oh, no
Just give the child [G]to her
A[G]nd didn't Solomon have it all together?
Didn't Solomon lead his people [D]well?
[G]Didn't Solomon have all together?
[G]Don't his words ring clearly as a bell?
[G]Didn't Solomon have it all together?
