Jesus Was A Carpenter Recorded by Johnny Cash Written by Chris Warren
G C D Jesus was a carpenter and He worked with a saw and a hammer G C D And His hands could form a table true enough to stand forever G C G D And He might have spun His life out in the coolness of the mornings G C D C But He put aside His tools and He walked the burning highways G Am D To build a house from folks like you and me
G C D And He found them as they wandered through the wild Judean mountains G C D And He found them as they pulled their nets upon the Sea of Galilee G C G D And for a thousand evenings while the day behind Him emptied G C G C He walked among the poor and He stopped to touch the dying G Am D And He built His house from people just like these
G C D It was on a shining Sunday when He rode to old Jerusalem G C D And the palms they cast before Him were the crimes they laid against Him G C G C It was on a storming Friday when He climbed the streets to Calvary G C G C And where He died today why they're sellin' beads and postcards G Am D And they tell us too that that was long ago
G C D But would He stand today upon the sands of California G C D Or walk the sweating blacktop in New York and Mississippi G C G D Where the mighty churches rise above the screaming cities G C G C Would He be a guest on Sunday a vagrant on a Monday G Am D With the doors locked tight against His kind you know
G C D Come again now Jesus be a carpenter among us G C D There are chapels in our discontent cathedrals in our sorrows G C G D And we dwell in golden mansions with the sand for our foundations G C G C And the raging water's rising and the thunder's all around us G Am D Won't You come and build a house on rock again
