Michael Card

chords: Marek Vit (
(from the 'Brother to Brother' CD that Michael did w/ J.M.Talbot
- it may differ slightly from the original M. Card's version)
[Dm]Why did it h[C]ave to [Dm]be a friend
Who ch[Gm]ose to bet[C]ray the L[Dm]ord
[Dm]Why did he [C]use a k[Dm]iss to show
That's n[Gm]ot what a k[C]iss is f[Dm]or
O[F]nly a friend can betr[C]ay a friend
A st[Dm]ranger has nothing to ga[A]in
And [Dm]only a f[C]riend comes [Dm]close enough
To [Gm]ever cause [C]so much p[Dm]ain
And [Gm]why did there h[F]ave to [Gm]be thorny
[Cm]Crown pressed up[F]on His h[Gm]ead
It [Gm]should have b[F]een the r[Gm]oyal one
Made of j[Cm]ewels and g[F]old ins[Gm]tead
[F]It had to be a c[C]rown of thorns
Bec[Dm]ause in this life that we l[A]ive
[Dm]All who would s[C]eek to l[Dm]ove
A thorn is a[Gm]ll that this w[C]orld can g[Dm]ive
(use the same chords as in the first verse)
And why did it have to be
A heavy cross He was made to bare
And why did they nail His feet and hands
His love would have held Him there
It was a cross for upon a cross
A thief was supposed to pay
And Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away
Yes, Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away

This is how I play it. If you have any corrections, please send them to

happy if you share them w/ me.
