It's All for the Best
from the musical production "Godspell"
(c) 1971 the Harold Square Music Company and Cadenza Music Corporation
Tabbed by Caleb/Bigbro

*note*  This song needs two people.

Verse (Jesus)1:
               C
When You feel sad or under a curse,
              D7
Your life is bad,

Your prospects are worse,
               G7
Your wife is sigh-ing, cry-ing, 

And your olive tree is dying.
C                        B7
Temples are greying and teeth are decaying
     D7                      G7
And creditors weighing your purse!

Verse 2 (Jesus):
                    C
Your mood and your robe are both a deep blue.
             D7
You bet that Job had nothing on you.
                   F      F#dim   C                Ab7
Don't forget that when you go to Heaven you'll be blessed,
D7         G7         C
Yes, it's all for the best.

Verse 1 (second vocalist):
              C
Some men are born to live at ease,

Doing what they please, 

Richer than the bees are in honey,
D7
Never growing old, never feeling cold,

Pulling pots of gold from the air.
     G7
The best in ev'ry town,

Best at shaking down, best at making mountains of money,
(slow)C               B7
They can't take it with them, 
     D7
But what do they care?
(speed up)     C
They get the center of the meat, 
Cushions on their seat,
Houses on a street where it's sunny.
D7                 
Summers at sea, winters warm and free,
            Dm7
All of this we get the rest, but,
F            F#dim
Who is the land for, 
     C             Ab7
The sun and the sand for?
       D7         G7          C
You guessed it's all for the best.

*note*  Repeat this with both vocalists, end with:
D7        G7            C                 A7
Yes, it's all for the (You must never be distressed)
                      (All your wrongs will be distressed)
D7         G7          C C7 Ab7 C
Yes, it's all for the best!
