The Outlaw  
by Larry Norman
from "Only Visiting this Planet"
Transcribed by Kevin Berk

INTRO:	G C G C G C G C
G                  C               G                 C
Some say He was an outlaw, that He roamed across the land
D7                                       G             Em Em6
With a band of unschooled ruffians and a few old fishermen
G                         C            G                 Am Am6
No one knew just where He came from or exactly what He'd done
D7                                          G               Am G
But they said it must be something bad that kept Him on the run.

G                 C              G              C
Some say He was a poet that He'd stand upon the hill
    D7                                     G                    Em Em6
And his voice could calm an angry crowd or make the waves stand still
G                     C             G              Am Am6
That He spoke in many parables that few could understand
D7                                   G              Am G
But the people sat for hours just to listen to this man.

G                 C          G           C
Some say He was a sorcerer a man of mystery
D7                                      G                Em Em6
He could walk upon the water.  He could make a blind man see.
G                        C                G                    Am Am6
That He conjured wine at weddings and did tricks with fish and bread.
D7                                            G               Am G
That He talked of being born again and raised people from the dead.

BREAK:  C6 D7 Em6 C G6 Em Am Am6 G

G                C        G              C
Some say a politician who spoke of being free
D7                                   G             Em Em6
He was followed by the masses on the shores of Galilee
G                          C           G             Am Am6
He spoke out against corruption and He bowed to no decree
D7                                             G               Am G
And they feared His strength and power so they nailed Him to a tree.

G                   C            G             C
Some say He was the Son of God a man above all men
D7                                 G                Em Em6
But He came to be a servant and to set us free from sin
    G              C             G                    Am Am6
And thatĘs who I believe He was ęcause that's who I believe
D7                                          G              Am G
And I think we should get ready ęcause it's time for us to leave

ENDING:  C6 D7 Em6 C G6 Em Am Am6 G
