John The Revelator

Chorus:
G
Tell me, who’s that writing? (John the revelator)
         D7
Tell me, who’s that writing, (John the revelator)   
             G                     C
Now tell me, who’s that writing, (John the revelator)
             D7                G
He wrote the book of the seven seals


G
God walked down the hill one day
       D7
Called Adam by his name
G             C
Adam wouldn’t answer
             D7         G
Cause he was naked and ashamed

(Chorus)


G
You know, Christ had twelve apostles (Spirit willing)
D7
Three He led away (Oh but the flesh was weak)
        G             C
He said watch with Me while I walk
        D7            G
While I go yonder and pray


G
For Christ rose on Easter morning, (Hallelujah)
D7
Mary and Martha came down to see (The resurrection)
G              C
He said go and tell my disciples
   D7         G
To meet Me in Galilee

(Chorus)
