The Color Green (Rich Mullins Cover) – John and Rebekah Boruff

VERSE:
C
And the moon is a sliver of silver
                                                        F
Like a shaving that fell on the floor of a Carpenter’s shop
          D
And every house must have it’s builder
        Am
And I awoke in the house of God
                    C
Where the windows are mornings and evenings
                                                                F
Str-etch-ed from the s-un, across the sky north to south
         D                                                 F
And on my way to early meeting
                      Am                                              G
I heard the rocks crying out, I heard the rocks crying out

CHORUS:
      F                                                                        C
Be praised for all Your tenderness (quick), by these works of Your hands
                   D                                                              Am                          Em
Suns that rise and rains that fall to bless, and bring to life Your land
           F                                                                  C
Look down up-on this winter (quick) wheat, and be glad that You have made
          D                                 Am             F
Blue for the sk–y and the color gre–en
           F                                                E/power chord (2 up from G)/G/power”/B (x4)…E
That fills these fields with praise

(Irish yodeling tune)

VERSE:
                C
And the wrens have returned and are nesting
                                         F
In the hollow, of that oak where his heart once had been
D                                                                                   Am
And he lifts his arms in a bless-ing, for bein’ born again
                C
And the streams are all swollen (quick) with winter
                                             F
Win-ter un-froz-en and free to run away now
                  D                         F                              Am
And I’m amazed, and I remember, Who it w–as th–at bu–ilt this ho–use
                         G
And with the rocks, I– cr–y o–ut

CHORUS  – break riff x2

*Thanks to my wife Rebekah for helping on the strumming rhythms.
