Mary Did You Know
Mark Lowry

              Em             D2
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
      Am7             B7
Would someday walk on water
              Em             D2
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
      Am7               B7
Would save our sons and daughters?
        C              D            G       D/F#     C
Did you know that your baby boy has come ot make you new?
     Am                               B7
This child that you've delivered will soon deliver you
              Em             D2
Mary, did you know htat your baby boy
     Am7             B7
Will give sight to a blind man?
              Em             D2
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
      Am7                   B7
Would calm the sea with his hand
        C              D            G            D/F#   C
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
            Am          
When you've kissed your little baby
            B7
Then you've kissed the face of God

[I don't really know the chords under the solo...i think it's
Em D2 Am B7, but I don't have the CD.]

    C                   D 
The blind will see, the deaf will hear
    G         G/F#  Em
The dead will live again
    C                   D
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak
    Am             B7
The praises of the Lamb

              Em             D2
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
   Am             B7
Is Lord of all creation?
             Em             D2
Mary did you know that your baby boy
     Am               B7
Will one day rule the nations?
        C              D            G        D/F#    C
Did you know that your baby boy was heaven's perfect Lamb?
     Am                                   B7       Em
This sleeping child you're holding is the great "I Am"?

Awesome, the best I've seen yet! Thank you so much!

at the end of each verse where you have it go from G to D/f# then to C it should be G to D/F# then to Em because the song is in the key of E minor not C major.


mjwinter - 2005-01-25

basic structure is there; we've adapted this for our band and I add the following - it follows the Kathy Mattea version (key, styling, etc):
* capo 3rd
* slow strum on 1st three strings of Em (6-5-4), then pluck 1 & 3 together on 3 followed by 2nd string on 4
* emphasisze the D, then finger pick the D, incl a quick suspension on and off 1, then walk down 2 notes
* Use C instead of Am in verse

have to go for now; more to follow...God Bless! Mike

how do you play D2?


FCC_GUITAR - 2006-04-13

first you play a D2 just like a D chord but you take your middle finger off of the high E string, and second, way to go on the tab man it rocks! nice job.

How about a D/F#. How do you play that?


Katy-nan - 2008-12-17

typo on words....line 5.....
....that your baby boy has come TO make you new.....
great song--can't wait to find the right fingers and play it. thanks!

in response to the comment made about the C being an Em on the end of the second to last line of the verses, it is a C not an Em the song may be in Em but that doesn't mean that the chord structure has to always be one way. listen to the song as written by mark lowry and buddy green and it is a C not an Em


pandagroov - 2009-12-22

also, the line is "calm a storm" not "calm the sea"
