It was me

As on Johnny Connor’s CD
Original key Bb (Open chords, guitar detuned a whole step)

There heads were low
Thier steps were slow
As they walked along that long and dangerous road
Then a man appeared and as he drew near
He said why are you so sad, are things really that bad?
They said sir, have you not heard
You must be a stranger in this town
Because the one who came in the fathers name
He has been struck down, laid his body in the ground

As they walked and talked he began to explain
About this Jesus and why he came
He opened the scriptures and began to teach
The preacher of preachers, he began to preach

In the wilderness the children have nothing there to eat
Manna from heaven fell down there at thier feet
When they were dry and thirsty in a foreign land
Living water came forth out of the rock and the sand

When the three hebrew children were thrown in the flames
A fourth man appeared, they even called him by name
The manna, the water, the man are all the same
If you’re still confused, let me say it real plain

It was me, it was me, I’m the one you left back there at Calvary
It was me.

Who do you think hung the stars in the sky
Who do you think made the day and the night
Who made the flowers, who made the trees
Who made the sun and the moon and the seas
Who gives the life to all who believe
Who do you think made the blind to see
Who gave the very air that you breath
Who defeated death and gave the victory

It was me, it was me
I’m the one who died for you at calvary
It was me
