Sweet Gospel Music

Compiled by Robert Wilson

D   Dmaj7 G
My poor heart was heavy, my poor heart was stone
D     Dmaj7
Then I heard them, they were angels
G   D
And they were singing: you're not alone
Dmaj7
There's a peace (peace) you've never known

I could hear trumpets, I could hear them blow
And the angel sent their chariots
The angels told them: swing, swing low
The angels told them: swing, swing low

G   D        G    G
Sweet gospel music, carry this boy away from danger
G   D G        G
Sweet gospel music, carry him towards the light
G   D G   G
Sweet gospel music, carry this boy away from danger
G   D G      G
Sweet gospel music, carry him home tonight

If your heat is heavy, if your heart is stone
May you hear them, the are angels
They may be singing about a throne
About a peace you've never known

Sweet gospel music, carry this boy away from danger
Sweet gospel music, carry him towards the light
Sweet gospel music, carry this boy away from danger
Sweet gospel music, carry him home tonight

Sweet gospel music, carry this boy away from danger
Sweet gospel music, carry him towards the light
Sweet gospel music, carry this boy away from danger
Sweet gospel music, carry him home tonight


Leon Offermans suggests this alternative plan:

D    F#m Bm (instead of D  Dmaj7)    G
My poor heart was heavy, my poor heart was stone
 
And for the chorus:

G D Em
