He praised the lord and married young

Cured the people of transgression

(E)
Gabriel he held the weight of
((E)4maj)          (E)
(E)verybody's toxic waste and
(G#min)
With the load upon his shoulder
(G#min)6             (G#min)7
Couldn't sleep as he got older

(C#min)

Our Gabriel, he had no one that

He could talk to
            (F#maj)
Gabriel, he had no one that he could talk to

(E)
Looking for a place to be or
((E)4maj)                  (E)
Someplace he could hide his grief
(G#min)
Gabriel ran to the beach and
(G#min)6            (G#min)7
Set out for the open sea

 (E)
Heaved the baggage from the sands
 ((E)4maj)                (E)
Aboard the vessel with his hands
    (G#min)
And when he couldn't see the land
  (G#min)6                 (G#min)7
Released their sins on his command

(E)
As the problems slowly drifted
((E)4maj)                  (E)
All the weight was quickly lifted
(G#min)
From his back into the sea
  (G#min)6         (G#min)7
He finally felt he was free

(E)
When he got home after months
((E)4maj)               (E)
Sat down and waited for lunch
   (G#min)
He looked down at an empty dish
      (G#min)6              (G#min)7
Cause all their sins had killed the fish
