Richard Shindell - The Ballad Of Mary Magdalen Lyrics and Chords


INTRO: C  Am  G  F  (2x)  C

           Am  F
My name is Mary Magdalen
      G          C    F G C
I come from Palestine
         Am         F
Please excuse these rags I'm in
                  G     C      F
But I've fallen on hard times
      G    F      C     F
Long ago I had my work
           Am    G     F G C
When I was in my prime
              Am  F
But I gave it up, and all for love
             G       C    
It was his career or mine

CHORUS:
Am    G        F       C     F
Jesus loved me, this I know
                                G
Why on earth did I ever let him go
      Am      G        F              C     
He was always faithful, he was always kind
       F          Am        G        C
But he walked off with this heart of mine

INTERLUDE: C  Am  G  F  (2x)  C

    Am    F
I remember nights we spent
          G    C      F G C
Whispering our creed
        Am      F
Our rituals, our sacraments
             G     C    F
The stars our canopy
        G    F         C     F
There beneath an olive tree
           Am     G     F G C
We'd offer up our plea
         Am    F
God's creation, innocent
        G            C    
His arms surrounding me

CHORUS:
Am    G        F       C     F
Jesus loved me, this I know
                                G
Why on earth did I ever let him go
      Am      G        F              C     
He was always faithful, he was always kind
       F          Am        G        C
But he walked off with this heart of mine

INTERLUDE: C  Am  G  F  (2x)  C

            Am  F
A love like this will come but once
      G     C      F G C
This I do believe
             Am      F
And I'll not see his like again
    G         C       F
As I live and breath
          G   F        C     F
I'm sorry if I might offend
  Am         G    F G C
I will never see
              Am    F
How the tenderness I shared with him
      G      C    
Became a heresy

CHORUS:
Am    G        F       C     F
Jesus loved me, this I know
                                 G
Why on earth did he ever have to go
       Am     G                F      C     
He was always faithful, he was always kind
       F          Am        G        C
But he walked off with this heart of mine
       Am     G                F      C     
He was always faithful, he was always kind
       F          Am        G        C
But he walked off with this heart of mine

OUTRO: C  Am  G  F
