...GOD'S SONG (THAT'S WHY I LOVE MANKIND) by Randy Newman
-----------------------------------------................

*from 'Sail Away' (1972)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Cm)


Verse 1:

Am
 Cain slew Abel;
Seth knew not why.
Dm
 For if the.
Children of Israel,
              Am
Were to multi-ply;
         E7
Why must any of,
    Am    E7  Am
The child-ren die?
So he asked the Lord,
E
 And the Lord said;

Chorus 1:

Am         E7
 Man means nothing,
   Am    E7      Am  A7
He means less to me,
Dm
 Than the lowliest,
A7
 Cactus flower,
       Dm       A7    Dm
Or the humblest Yucca tree.

   Am                E7
He chases round this desert,
        Am
'Cos he thinks,
       C7         F7
That's where I'll be;
Am            E7       Am   E7
 That's why I love man-kind.

Am           E7
 I recoil in horror,
         Am   E7      Am    A7
From the foul-ness of thee.
Dm                        A7
 From the squalor and the filth,
Dm       A7   Dm
 And the mise-ry.
       Am                  E7
How we laugh up in here in heaven,
       Am          C7    F7
At the prayers you offer me;
Am            E7       Am   E7
 That's why I love man-kind.

Verse 2:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/randy_newman/gods_song_crd.html ]
Am
 The Christians and the Jews,
Were having a jamboree,
Dm
 The Buddhists and the Hindu's,
          Am
Joined on satellite TV.
They picked their,
E7
 Four greatest priests,
    Am      E7     Am
And they be-gan to speak;
They said;

Am
 "Lord, a plague is on the world,
Lord, no man is free,
    Dm
The temples that we built to you,
     Am
Have tumbled into the sea.
                        E7
Lord, if you won't take care of us;
          Am
Won't you please,
       E7     Am
Please let us be?"
        Am         E
And the Lord said,
        C          E
And the Lord said;

Chorus 2:

Am
 I burn down your cities,
    E7             Am  A7
How blind you must be.
Dm                    A7
 I take from you your children,
And you say;
Dm    A7          Dm
 "How blessed are we".
Am               E7
 You all must be crazy,
   Am       C7       F7
To put your faith in me;

Am            E7       Am
 That's why I love man-kind;
    Dm
You really need me,
Am            E7       Am
 That's why I love man-kind.
