The Preacher Said Jesus Said
Written and recorded by Johnny Cash with Billy Graham

C G7 C C7
Well with everybody tryin' to tell us what to do
C G7 C F C
You wonder how are you to know whose word is true
F C D7
But the preachers just keep on a bringin' us the very same word
And from St. Paul to Billy Graham the same is heard
C G7 C
And the preacher said of truth Jesus said

(And Jesus said I'm the way the truth and the life)

G7 C C7
Well we can see that the world is full of greed
C G7 C F C
There's so much hate yet there is so much need
F C D7
What should we do when no one seems to care
What can we do when there is no love there
C G7 C
And then the preacher said of love Jesus said

(Jesus said love Thy neighbor as Thyself)

G7 C C7
Well please tell us the road we oughta go
C G7 C F C
In such confusion how are we to know
F C D7
And if there is a heaven show us to its gate
Oh you'd better tell us preacher before it's too late
C G7 C
And then the preacher said of heaven Jesus said

(Jesus said seek Thee first the kingdom of God and His righteousness
And all these things shall be added unto you)

G7 C C7
Well please tell us how we can find a way
C G7 C F C
To climb every mountain that we face every day
F C D7
And in time of troubles what to depend upon
To be the truth and help us carry on
C G7 C
And the preacher said of trouble Jesus said

(Jesus said let not your heart be troubled if you believe in God
believe also in me. In my father's house are many mansions if it were
not so I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you. And if I
prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you unto myself.
That where I am there you may be also)
