Jesus Take Hold Written and recorded by Merle Haggard
C G7 C Like the ancient Roman empire this world is doomed to fall
And it's much to big a thing for mortal men F C Just take a look around and see the writing on the wall G7 C Somehow we've got to find a helping hand
F C This world has never been in the awful shape it's in Am And people scorn the things our leaders do C F C It's time the prayer was spoken from the heart of every man G7 C Jesus take a hold and lead us through
G7 C The mighty roar of gunfire is now a local sound
And our city streets are filled with angry men F C Law is now a mockery throughout our troubled land G7 C And destruction seems to be the current trend
F C This world has never been in the awful shape it's in Am And our leaders seem in doubt of what to do C F C It's time the prayer was spoken from the heart of every man G7 C Jesus take a hold and lead us through G7 C Jesus take a hold and lead us through
