FOREWORD

This is a third volume of lyrics to popular songs, to assist learning to play the guitar by ear, as described in the article, How to Play the Guitar by Ear (for Mathematicians and Physicists), posted at Internet web sites http://www.foundation.bw and http://www.foundationwebsite.org . As discussed in the foreword to Volume 1, the purpose of assembling these lyrics is to provide the student with a large number of songs from which he may choose ones for which he knows the melody and enjoys singing. Since everyone’s taste is different, and the student may not be familiar with the songs that I know (many from decades ago), it is the intention to provide a large number of popular songs from which the student may choose. I believe that learning the guitar is facilitated by practicing a number of different songs in a practice session, and playing each one only a couple of times, perhaps in a couple of different keys. In order to do this, it is important to have a large collection of lyrics available. This volume consists of spiritual songs – mostly classic gospel hymns.

As in Volume I, I have deliberately omitted noting the chords to be played on each song, if it is my opinion that the beginning student should be able to figure them out easily – e.g., chords are omitted for most two-chord or three-chord songs. The purpose of this omission is to provide the student with the opportunity of learning to determine which chord to use at each point of the song, quickly and automatically. For more difficult songs, I indicate some of the chords, and for some songs, I provide chords for the entire song. Where I indicate only a few chords, it is important to remember, as noted on the cover, that it is assumed that all songs are sung in the key of A, unless otherwise indicated. (There are a few songs for which the chords are relatively easy, but I have indicated them nevertheless. These are songs that I was to sing in public for some occasion, and I did not wish to make a mistake.)

In some cases, I have found songs already chorded, but in a fashion that is not convenient for the guitar (e.g., in the key of Bflat, or with many exotic chords). In most cases, I have removed the chords or re-chorded them. In some cases, however, I have left the songs in “strange” keys or chordings, to be modified as an exercise by the student.

Many of the songs of this volume are copyrighted by others. In their original or available forms, however, they are not helpful for the beginning student of guitar (e.g., they are arranged for piano, or are written in a key that is not natural for the guitar, or are fully annotated with chords, or are in small print). To facilitate reading by the student as he plays the guitar, they are presented here in a large, easy-to-read font and with a strong attempt to keep the song to a single page in length. To facilitate his progress in learning to play by ear, the chords have been removed in all simple cases. It is for these reasons that I have, in cognizance of and in the spirit of the “fair use” doctrine of copyright law, reformatted these songs and presented them in the present volume.

Good luck!

AMAZING GRACE
WORDS BY JOHN NEWTON (LAST VERSE BY UNKNOWN AUTHOR)
MUSIC BY JAMES P CARRELL AND DAVID S CLAYTON, A

(A) AMAZING GRACE! HOW (D) SWEET THE (A) SOUND
THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE (E) ME!
I (A) ONCE WAS LOST, BUT (D) NOW AM (A) FOUND;
WAS BLIND, BUT (E) NOW I (A) SEE.

’TWAS GRACE THAT TAUGHT MY HEART TO FEAR,
AND GRACE MY FEARS RELIEVED;
HOW PRECIOUS DID THAT GRACE APPEAR
THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED.

THROUGH MANY DANGERS, TOILS AND SNARES,
I HAVE ALREADY COME;
’TIS GRACE HATH BROUGHT ME SAFE THUS FAR,
AND GRACE WILL LEAD ME HOME.

THE LORD HAS PROMISED GOOD TO ME,
HIS WORD MY HOPE SECURES;
HE WILL MY SHIELD AND PORTION BE,
AS LONG AS LIFE ENDURES.

YEA, WHEN THIS FLESH AND HEART SHALL FAIL,
AND MORTAL LIFE SHALL CEASE,
I SHALL POSSESS, WITHIN THE VEIL,
A LIFE OF JOY AND PEACE.

THE EARTH SHALL SOON DISSOLVE LIKE SNOW,
THE SUN FORBEAR TO SHINE;
BUT GOD, WHO CALLED ME HERE BELOW,
SHALL BE FOREVER MINE.

WHEN WE’VE BEEN HERE TEN THOUSAND YEARS,
BRIGHT SHINING AS THE SUN,
WE’VE NO LESS DAYS TO SING GOD’S PRAISE
THAN WHEN WE’D FIRST BEGUN.

THE JOYS I FEEL, THE BLISS I SHARE
OF THOSE WHOSE ANXIOUS SPIRITS BURN
WITH STRONG DESIRES FOR THY RETURN
WITH SUCH I HASTEN TO THE PLACE
WHERE GOD MY SAVIOR SHOWS HIS FACE
AND GLADLY TAKE MY STATION THERE
AND WAIT FOR THEE, SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER

SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER, SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER
THY WINGS SHALL MY PETITION BEAR
TO HIM WHOSE TRUTH AND FAITHFULNESS
ENGAGE THE WAITING SOUL TO BLESS
AND SINCE HE BIDS ME SEEK HIS FACE
BELIEVE HIS WORD AND TRUST HIS GRACE
I'LL CAST ON HIM MY EVERY CARE
AND WAIT FOR THEE, SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER

SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER, SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER
MAY I THY CONSOLATION SHARE
TILL, FROM MOUNT PISGAH'S LOFTY HEIGHT
I VIEW MY HOME, AND TAKE MY FLIGHT
THIS ROBE OF FLESH I'LL DROP AND RISE
TO SEIZE THE EVERLASTING PRIZE
AND SHOUT, WHILE PASSING THROUGH THE AIR
FAREWELL, FAREWELL, SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS
REV GEORGE BENNARD (1913) E

(E) ON A HILL FAR AWAY STOOD AN (A) OLD RUGGED CROSS
THE (B7) EMBLEM OF SUFFERING AND (E) SHAME
AND I LOVE THAT OLD CROSS, WHERE THE (A) DEAREST AND BEST
FOR A (B7) WORLD OF LOST SINNERS WAS (E) SLAIN

(CHORUS) SO I'LL (B7) CHERISH THE OLD RUGGED (E) CROSS
TILL MY (A) TROPHIES AT LAST I LAY (E) DOWN
I WILL CLING TO THE OLD RUGGED (A) CROSS
AND EX(E)CHANGE IT SOME(B7)DAY FOR A (E) CROWN

O THAT OLD RUGGED CROSS, SO DESPISED BY THE WORLD
HAS A WONDROUS ATTRACTION FOR ME
FOR THE DEAR LAMB OF GOD LEFT HIS GLORY ABOVE
TO BEAR IT TO DARK CALVARY

IN THE OLD RUGGED CROSS, STAINED WITH BLOOD SO DIVINE
A WONDROUS BEAUTY I SEE
FOR 'TWAS ON THAT OLD CROSS, JESUS SUFFERED AND DIED
TO PARDON AND SANCTIFY ME

TO THE OLD RUGGED CROSS, I WILL EVER BE TRUE
ITS SHAME AND REPROACH GRADLY BEAR
THEN HE'LL CALL ME SOMEDAY TO MY HOME FAR AWAY
WHERE HIS GLORY FOREVER I'LL SHARE

THE UNCLOUDED DAY
UNCLOUDY DAY

O THEY (A) TELL ME OF A HOME FAR BE(D)YOND THE (A) SKIES

AND THEY TELL ME THAT MINE EYES SHALL BEHOLD
WHERE HE SITS ON THE THRONE THAT IS WHITER THAN SNOW
IN THE CITY THAT IS MADE OF GOLD (REFRAIN)

AND HIS SMILE DRIVES THEIR SORROWS ALL AWAY
AND THEY TELL ME THAT NO TEARS EVER COME AGAIN
IN THAT LOVELY LAND OF UNCLOUDED DAY (REFRAIN)

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS
WORDS BY JOSEPH M SCRIVEN, MUSIC BY CHARLES C CONVERSE

(A) WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN (D) JESUS, (A) ALL OUR SINS AND GRIEFS TO (E) BEAR!
(A) WHAT A PRIVILEGE TO (D) CARRY (A) EVERY(E)THING TO GOD IN (A) PRAYER
(D) O WHAT PEACE WE OFTEN (A) FORFEIT, (D) O WHAT (A) NEEDLESS PAIN WE (E) BEAR
(A) ALL BECAUSE WE DO NOT (D) CARRY (A) EVERY(E)THING TO GOD IN (A) PRAYER!

HAVE WE TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS? IS THERE TROUBLE ANYWHERE?
WE SHOULD NEVER BE DISCOURAGED; TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
CAN WE FIND A FRIEND SO FAITHFUL WHO WILL ALL OUR SORROWS SHARE?
JESUS KNOWS OUR EVERY WEAKNESS; TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER

ARE WE WEAK AND HEAVY LADEN, CUMBERED WITH A LOAD OF CARE?
PRECIOUS SAVIOR, STILL OUR REFUGE, TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
DO THY FRIENDS DESPISE, FORSAKE THEE? TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
IN HIS ARMS HE'LL TAKE AND SHIELD THEE; THOU WILT FIND A SOLACE THERE

BLESSED SAVIOR, THOU HAST PROMISED THOU WILT ALL OUR BURDENS BEAR
MAY WE EVER, LORD, BE BRINGING ALL TO THEE IN EARNEST PRAYER
SOON IN GLORY BRIGHT UNCLOUDED THERE WILL BE NO NEED FOR PRAYER
RAPTURE, PRAISE AND ENDLESS WORSHIP WILL BE OUR SWEET PORTION THERE

DO YOU LOVE THE HYMNS THEY TAUGHT YOU
OR ARE SONGS OF EARTH YOUR CHOICE? (CHORUS)

YOU CAN PICTURE HAPPY GATH'RINGS
'ROUND THE FIRESIDE LONG AGO
AND YOU THINK OF TEARFUL PARTINGS

I WILL FOLLOW CLOSE BEHIND HER
TRY TO HOLD UP AND BE BRAVE
BUT I COULD NOT HIDE MY SORROW
WHEN THEY LAID HER IN THE GRAVE (REFRAIN)
