Jesus Was An Only Son
written by Bruce Springsteen
Album: "Devils & Dust"

INTRO: D  A  G  D  G  A  D

     D     D/F#    G   D
Well Jesus was an only son
As he walked up Calvry Hill
           D     D?F#     G        D
His mother Mary walking beside Him
       G          A          D
In the path where His blood spilled
D     D/F#    G   D
Jesus was an only son
In the hills of Nazareth
          D           D/F#       G      D
As He lay reading the Psalms of David
     G       A       D
Well at His mother's feet

         D     D/F#           G          D
Mother prayed sleep tight my child sleep well
For I'll be at Your side
        D         D/F#          G       D
And no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell
      G           A            D
Shall pierce your dreams this night


       D      D/F#    G      D
In the garden at Gethsemane
He prayed for the life He'd never live
   D              D/F#     G         D
He beseeched His heavenily Father to remove
    G          A           D
The cup of death from His lips
          D         D/F#      G           D
There's a loss that can never be replaced
A destination that can never be reached
  D                  D/F#           G       D    
A light you'll never find in another's face
            G           A      D
A sea whose distance cannot be breached


     D     D/F#         G           D
Well Jesus kissed His mother's hands
And whispered Mother still your tears
    D            D/F#        G         D
For remember the soul of the universe
         G         A       D
Willed a world and it appeared
