Greatest Story Ever Told
(Weir/Hunter)


G C G C G G-C-G
Moses come ridin' up on a quasar.
G C G C G G-C-G
His spurs were a-jingling, the door was ajar.
G C G C G G-C-G
His buckle was silver, his manner was bold.
G C G C G G-C-G
I asked him to come on in out of the cold.

Em Bm G C G G-C-G
His brain was boiling, his reason was spent.
Em Bm G C G G-C-G
Said: If nothing is borrowed, nothing is lent.
G C G C G G-C-G
I asked him for mercy, he gave me a gun.
G C G C G G-C-G
Said: Now ‘n’ again these things just got to be done.

Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence
Em A
You'd get right to work if you had any sense
G
You know the one thing we need
C G C G G-C-G
Is a left-hand monkey wrench.

Gideon come in with his eyes on the floor
Says; You ain't got a hinge, you can't close the door.
Moses stood up a full six foot and ten
Says: You can't close the door when the wall’s caved in.

I ask him for water, he poured me some wine
We finished the bottle then broke into mine.
You get what you come for, you're ready to go
And it's one in ten thousand just come for the show.

Abraham and Isaac digging on a well
Mama come quick with the water-witch spell
Cool clear water where you cain't never tell.

Moses come ridin' up on a quasar.
His spurs were a-jingling, the door was ajar.
His buckle was silver, his manner was bold.
I asked him to come on in, out of the cold.

Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence
You'd get right to work if you had any sense
You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench.
