Didn't He
Words and Music by Randy Matthews
on Son of Dust
Copyright 1969

Hammer effect intro: 
Bang on guitar side with open strings twice, then once with E 
Continue with E until "laughed at him"

(bang on E)                   (bang on E)
           And the hammer fell           on the wooden nail
(bang on E)                                
           Through his flesh into the tree
         A             B7
As they laughed at him
       E             Esus4 A
As he cried for them
And there he hung
     E            Esus4 A
The faultless one

               B7       E        Esus4 A
Now didn't he live, oh didn't he
               B7       E        Esus4 A
And didn't he give, oh didn't he
               B7      E         Esus4 A B7 E Esus4 E
But didn't he die for you and me

                      Esus4 E
Spilled his precious blood
              Esus4 E
Sacrifice of love
We didn't take his life from him
            A        B7       
He gave it willingly
             E       Esus4 A
Fulfill the prophecy
What's black is white
         E              Esus4 A
And this wrong is right

                  Esus4 E
Bugler, blow your horn
                  Esus4 E
Now the curtain's torn
And the battle's done I know
           A              B7     
I know the victory's come
            E              Esus4 A  
Drummer you drum your drum
                        B7 E
He broke death's chains
                 Esus4 A
The Lamb is slain


(Final Chorus)
                B7               E          Esus4 A
Now doesn't he live, my brother, doesn't he
                B7                 E          Esus4 A
Now doesn't he give, sweet sister, doesn't he
              B7       E         Esus4 A
But didn't he die for you and me
              B7      NC
But didn't he die for you and for me

One acknowledges that modern life seems to be high priced, but different people need money for various issues and not every person gets big sums money. Thence to receive good personal loans or credit loan would be good way out.

Anyone still in the dark about how to identify unknown wireless calls need look no further than the website of a good reverse number lookup directory.
