Revelation by Waylon Jennings

I'm not sure I have the chords right but here is what I have...

D Somewhere in Vietnam a 19 year old soldier walked out of a Am barroom 

and he said I must be C seeing things, that bourbon hit me like a
base G ball D bat.

In Belfast Ireland a little lady dropped her shovel in her Am garden

she raced across the C yard and asked her neighbor Mrs Clancy, what 
							G was D that?

In Memphis Tennesee a teacher raised the window closest to the Am river

and the C children in her classroom swore they heard a choir
singing 					G down the D street.

In Washington DC a private secretaries lips began to Am quiver

and the C president just put aside his papers and rose quickly G to his
								D feet.	

I lay in a cheap motel in the arms of someone else's Am woman

when a C loud explosion rocked the room and turned the morning G into
								D night.

I jumped out of bed and ran into the street with hardly any Am clothes 
on as the sky lit up my C heart stood still and I could feel my face
was 						G turned to D white.

All at once the clouds rolled back and there stood Jesus Christ in all 
his Am glory and I realized the C saddest eyes I'd ever seen were
looking G straight at D me.

I guess I was awakened by the penetrating sound of my own Am screaming

and it didn't take me C long to stumble out of bed and fall down G on
my 								D knees.

As tears rolled down my face I cried dear lord I'm thankful I was only 
Am dreaming and if I never go to C hell lord it'll be because you
scared 						it G out of D me.
