Revelation  Waylon Jennings

[Verse 1] 
Some[D]where in Vietnam a 19 year old soldier walked out of a bar [C]room,
[C]And he said I must be seeing things that bourbon hit me like a baseball [D]bat.
[D]In Belfast, Ireland a little lady dropped her shovel in her [C]garden,
[C]She raced across the yard and asked her neighbor Mrs. Clancy what was [D]that?
[Verse 2] 
[D]In Memphis, Tennessee a teacher raised the window closest to the [C]river,
[C]And the children in her classroom swore they heard a choir singing down the [D]street.
[D]In Washington, DC a private secretary's lips began to [C]quiver,
[C]And the President just put aside his papers and rose quickly to his [D]feet.
[Verse 3] 
[E]I lay in a cheap motel in the arms of someone else's [D]woman
[D]When a loud explosion rocked the room and turned the morning into [E]night.
[E]I jumped out of bed and ran into the streets with hardly any clothes [D]on
[D]As the sky lit up my heart stood still and I could feel my face was turning [E]white.
[A]All at once the clouds rolled back and there stood Jesus Christ in all his [E]glory,
[E]And I realized the saddest eyes I'd ever seen were looking straight at [B]me.
[Verse 4] 
I g[D]uess I was awakened by the penetrating sound of my own [C]screaming,
[C]And it didn't take me long to stumble out of bed and fall down on my [D]knees.
[D]As tears rolled down my face I cried dear God I'm thankful I was only [C]dreaming,
[C]And if I never go to Hell, Lord, it'll be because you scared it out of [D]me.
