WHAT IF JESUS COMES BACK LIKE THAT

Intro: (E)  (D)  (A)  (E)  [twice]
 
(E) He came to town on an (D) old freight train
(A) He jumped off in the (E) pouring rain
Everybody says (D) he's insane
Just a (A) low down no account hobo
 
(E) He made his bed 'neath the (D) county bridge
The (A) city folks said "hey, (E) that's not his"
They signed a petition they're (D) gonna get rid
Of that (A) low down no account white trash
 
(A) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
On an (E) old freight train in a (B7) hobo (E) hat
Will we (A) let him in or (D) turn our (A) back
(E) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (E) that
Hey what if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
 
(E)  (D)  (A)  (A)
 
(E) She was born into (D) drug abuse
(A) She couldn't help what her (E) mama used
It wasn't like she (D) got to choose
Now (A) she's layin' there all alone
 
(E) Got a monkey (D) on her back
(A) Nurses say they never saw a (E) smile like that
Doctor says she might (D) stand a chance
If (A) somebody takes her home
 
(A) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
(E) Two months early - (B7) hooked on (E) crack
Will we (A) let him in or (D) turn our (A) back
(E) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (E) that
Oh what if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
 
(B7) Nobody said life is fair
(F#m7) We've all got a (D) cross to bear
(F#m7) When it gets a little (E) hard to care
Just (A) think about Him (B7) hanging there
 
(E) He came to town on a (D) cold dark night
(A) A single star was his (E) only light
The baby born that (D) silent night
A (A) manger for his bed
 
(A) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
(E) Where will he find our (B7) hearts are (E) at
Will he (A) let us in or (D) turn his (A) back
(E) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
Will he (E) cry when he sees where our (B7) hearts are (E) at
Will he (A) let us in or (D) turn his (A) back
(E) What if Jesus comes (D) back like (E) that
Hey, (E) what if Jesus comes (D) back like (A) that
 
(E)  (D)  (A)  (A)
