CHORUS [4G] Three men on the mountain, [4G] up on Calvary
The [2C] man in the middle was [2G] Jesus
He [2G/D] died for you and [4G] me

Well the [3G] man on the left was a sinner [4F] man
Tied [4G] to the cross he bled
He [2C] could have been for – [2G] given
But he [2D] mocked the Lord in – [4G] stead
“You [3G] say you are the son of [4F] God
They [4G] nailed you to that tree
Come [2C] down, come down and [2G] save us
If [2D] God your father [4G] be.”

Well the [3G] man on the right was a sinner [4F] too
But he was [4G] sorry for his sin
He [2C] begged the Lord’s for – [2G] giveness
And [2D] Jesus said to [4G] him
“Fear [3G] not, fear not this earthly [4F] death
Be – [4G] fore this day is o’er
You’ll [2C] be with me in [2G] paradise
On [2D] heaven’s golden [4G] shore.”

The [2C] man in the middle was [2G] Jesus
He [2G/D] died for you and [4G] me

[4G] Three men on the mountain, [4G] up on Calvary
The [2C] man in the middle was [2G] Jesus
He [2G/D] died for you and [4G] me
