                         Michael Card

chords: Marek Vit (marek@geocities.com)
(from the 'Brother to Brother' CD that Michael did w/ J.M.Talbot
- it may differ slightly from the original M. Card's version)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/michael_card/why_crd.html ]
Dm          C      Dm
Why did it have to be a friend
      Gm        C        Dm
Who chose to betray the Lord
Dm         C      Dm
Why did he use a kiss to show
        Gm         C       Dm
That's not what a kiss is for
 F                    C
Only a friend can betray a friend
    Dm                      A
A stranger has nothing to gain
    Dm      C           Dm
And only a friend comes close enough
   Gm         C        Dm
To ever cause so much pain

    Gm             F      Gm
And why did there have to be thorny
Cm              F       Gm
Crown pressed upon His head
   Gm           F        Gm
It should have been the royal one
         Cm         F      Gm
Made of jewels and gold instead
F               C
It had to be a crown of thorns
   Dm                         A
Because in this life that we live
Dm             C       Dm
All who would seek to love
            Gm            C         Dm
A thorn is all that this world can give

(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.
