Jerusalem Tomorrow by (Em)mylou Harris Guitar Chords

(Bm)

Man you should have seen me way back
(Em)
then
(Bm)
I could tell a tale
F#7
I could make it spin
(Em)
I could tell you black was white
(Bm)
I could tell you day was night
F#7
Not only that I could tell you why
(Bm)
Back then I could really tell a lie
(Bm) (Em)
Well I’d hire a kid to say he was lame
(Bm) F#7
Then I’d touch him and make him walk again
(Em) (Bm)
Then I’d pull some magic trick I’d pretend to heal the sick
F#7
I was takin’ everything they had to give
(Bm)
It wasn’t all that bad a way to live
(Bm) (Em)
Well I’m in this desert town and it’s hot as hell
(Bm) F#7
But no one’s buyin’ what I got to sell
(Em) (Bm)
I make my lame kid walk I make a dumb guy talk
F#7
I’m preachin’ up a storm both night and day
(Bm)
But everyone just turns and walks away
(Bm) (Em)
Well I can see that I’m only wasting time
(Bm) F#7
So I head across the road to drink some wine
(Em)
This old man comes up to me
(Bm)
He says I’ve seen you on the street
F#7
You’re pretty good if I do say myself
(Bm)
But the guy that come thru here last month he was somethin’ else
(Bm) (Em)
Instead of callin’ out for fire from above
(Bm) F#7
He just gets real quiet and talks about love
(Em)
And I’ll tell you somethin’ funny
(Bm)
He didn’t want nobody’s money
F#7
Now I’m not exactly sure what this all means
(Bm)
But it’s the damndest thing I swear I’ve ever seen

[Solo]
(Bm) (Em)
Well since that time every town is the same
(Bm)
I can’t make a dime,
F#7
I don’t know why I came
(Em)
I decide I’ll go and find him
(Bm)
And find out who’s behind him
F#7
He has everyone convinced that he’s for real
(Bm)
Well I figure we can work us out a deal
(Bm) (Em)
So he offers me a job and I say fine
(Bm) F#7
He says I’ll get paid off on down the line
(Em)
Well I guess I’ll string along
(Bm)
Don’t see how too much can go wrong
F#7
As long as he pays my way I guess I’ll follow
(Bm)
We’re headed for Jerusalem tomorrow
