Not my usual lighthearted silliness. Herod's army at its worst. Seeger style on a Stelling Golden Cross.

I like it.  Has a "sittin' around the checkerboard at the gas station/cafe/corner store" kind of feel to it.

RUN, MARY RUN
Am E7 Am
1. The Magi said to Herod, where is He, the newborn King?

Am Dm E7
That we may worship him and give to Him the gifts we bring?

Am Dm
Herod heard their question, and he answered with a smile--

Am E7 Am
“I’ll send a thousand soldiers out, to help you find the Child!”

CHO
Am E7 Am
Run, Mary, run Mary, run Mary, run!
Am Dm E7
Herod’s wicked army is looking for your Son.
Am Dm
With sword and knife they seek the life of your own Little One.
Am E7 Am
Head for the land of Egypt, Run, Mary, run!


2.Then Herod called the chief priests in, the scholars and the scribes.

He said “What does your scripture say, which city and which tribe?”

“Where is it prophesied this birth?” King Herod asked of them.

They said “The line of David, in the town of Bethlehem

CHORUS

3. The soldiers laughed and murdered as the Hebrew mothers wept.

But an angel came to Joseph, and warned him as he slept.

Joseph rose and packed his clothes, an said to his young wife:

“We must fly now to Egypt, for to save the baby’s life!”

FINAL CHORUS: (Regular chorus PLUS this repeat)
Run, Mary, run Mary, run Mary, run!

Herod’s wicked army is looking for your Son.

With sword and knife they seek the life of your own Little One.
Head for the land of Egypt
Run,……Oh, Mary, run !

OOPS! The copy-and-paste shoved all the chords together.
Well, if you can't figure it out, e-mail me, and I'll send you the original document.

Very nice, Mike. I'll borrow that faster than Milton Berle can steal a joke (corny smiley emoticon inserted here).
