WE NEED A WHOLE LOT MORE OF JESUS 
(And A Lot Less Rock And Roll)

 CAPO: 1st FRET/KEY: G#/PLAY: G

[G] You can  read it in the mornin' paper
[C] Hear it on the radio
Crime is sweepin'  our [G] nation
This world is about to [D7] go
We need a [G] good old case  of salvation
To put the [C] love of God in our soul
We need a whole lot  more of [G] Jesus
And a [D7] lot less rock and [G] roll.

We need more old-time camp meetin's
Lots more  prayers of faith
Faith that will move mountains
Save our soul from the  burning wave
We need a good old case of salvation
To put the love of God  in our souls
We need a whole lot more of Jesus
And a lot less rock and  roll.

We need more old-fashioned preachers
Pourin'  out their hearts in prayer
When you are in their presence
You know that  the Lord is there
We need a nation-wide revival
To put the love of God in  our soul
We need a whole lot more of Jesus
And a lot less rock and  roll.

[G] We need a [C] whole lot more of [G]  Jesus
