Overture
             --------
Heaven on Their Minds
               -----------------------
       Dm             Dm              F            G
Judas:   My mind is cleared now - at last all too well
------          F           G              Dm
         I can see where we all soon will be
                   Dm           F             G
         If you strip away the myth from the man
                   F            G             Dm
         You will see where we all soon will be
         Dm
         Jesus !
                  Dm
         You've started to believe
               Em
         The things they say of you
              F
         You really do believe
                G                 Dm
         This talk of God is true

         And all the good you've done
         Will soon get swept away
         You've begun to matter more
         Then the things you say

         Dm                       F
            Listen Jesus I don't like what I see
         Dm                       G
            All I ask is that you listen to me
         Bb               C                              F
            And remember - I've been your right hand man all along
                      Dm
            You have set them all on fire
         Bb                     F
            They think they've found the new Messiah
         D/A                  A            Bb           Dm
            And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong

            I remember when this whole thing began
            No talk of God then - we called you a man
            And beleive me - my admiration for you hasn't died
            But every word you said today
            Gets twisted round some other way
            And they'll hurt you if they'll think you've lied

            Bb             F          Gm                    Dm
            Nazareth your famous son should have stayed a great unknown
            Gm               Dm/A
            Like his ofther carving wood
            A               Dm
            He'd have made good!
            Tables, chairs and oaken chests should have suited Jesue best
            He'd have caused nobody's harm
            No one alarm!

            I remember when this whole thing began
            No talk of God then - we called you a man
            And beleive me - my admiration for you hasn't died
            But every word you said today
            Gets twisted round some other way
            And they'll hurt you if they'll think you've lied

         Nazareth your famous son should have stayed a great unknown ...

            Listen Jesus to the warning I give,
            Please remember that I want us to live
            But it's sad to see our chances weakened with ev'ry hour
            All your followers are blind,
            Too much heaven on their minds
                                           Bb
            It was beautiful but now it's sour,
                     Dm             Bb7M            Repeat & Fade
            Yes it's all gone so sour ...


What's the Buzz
               ---------------     Bethany, Friday night

               Bbm
Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?
---------     Eb  major!
            What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?

Jesus:   Why should you want to know ?
------   Don't you mind about the future,
         Don't you try to think ahead
         Save tomorrow for tomorrow,
         Think about today instead

Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?

Jesus:   I could give you facts and figures -
------   I could give you plans and forecasts
         Even tell you where I'm going -

Apostles:   When do we ride into Jerusalem ?

Jesus:   Why should you want to know ?
------   Why are you obsessed with fighting
         Times and fates you can't defy  ?
         If you knew the path we're riding
         You'd understand it less than I  !

Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?

Mary M. :   Let me try to cool down your face a bit ...

Jesus:   That feels nice, so nice ...
------   Mary that is good - while you prattle through your supper
-
         Where and when and who and how
         She alone has tried to give me
         What I need right here and now !

Apostles:   What's the buzz ?  Tell me what's happening ?


Strange Thing Mystifying
               --------------------------
       G               G7                 C     Cm
Judas:   It seems to me a strange thing mystifying
------           G               C                  Cm          G
         That a man like you can waste his time on women of her
kind !
         Yes I can understand that she amuses,
         But to let her stroke you, kiss your hair is hardly in your line.

                       C    D               G
         It's not that I object to her profession
                  C                G        C                  G
         But she doesn't fit in well with what you teach and say
         It doesn't help us if you're inconsistent
         They only need a small excuse to put us all away.

                      F    C              G
        It's not that I object to her profession
                 F              C          F                 C
        But she doesn't fit in well with what you teach and say
                    F            C         G
        It doesn't help us if you're inconsistent
                   F              C       F           G
        They only need a small excuse to put us all away         )

Jesus:   Who are you to criticise her ?
------   Who are you to despise her ?
         Leave her, Leave her, let her be now
         Leave her, Leave her, she's with me now
         If you slate is clean - then you can throw stones
         If you slate is not - then leave leave her alone

         I'm amazed that man like you can be so shallow,
         thick and slow
         There's not a man among you who knows or cares
         if I come or go

All (save Judas):   No you're wrong !  You're very wrong !
-----------------   How can you say that ?

Jesus:   Not one - not one of you !

          The haunting hunted kind

          I ask him to say what had happened

          I asked again - he never said a word
          As if he hadn't heard.

          Bb                       Bb7      Ebm           Ebm7

          Ab                 Ab7
          They seemed to hate this man -

          They fell on him and then
          F7
          They disappeared again

          Then I saw thousands of millions
          Crying for this man .
          And then I heard them mentioning my name
          And leaving me the blame

      Bbm                           Eb      ...
      I'd wanna see I'd wanna see my God

      Why I should die ?
      Would I be more noticed than I ever was before ?
      Would the things I've said and done matter any more ?
      I'd have to know I'd have to know my lord
      I'd have to see I'd have to see my lord
      But if I die what will be my reward ?
      I'd have to know I'd have to know my lord
      Why I should die ?
      Can't you show me now that I wouldn't be
      killed in vain ?
      Show me just a little your omnipresent brain
      Show me there's a reason for your wanting me to die
      You're far to keen on where and how and
      not so hot on why
      Alright I'll die !
      Just watch me die !
      See how I die !

      Then I was inspired
      Now I'm sad and tired
      After all I've tried for three years seems
      like ninety why then am I
      Scared to finish what I started, what you started
      I didn't start it
      God thy will is hard
      But you hold every card
      I will drink your cup of poison nail me to the
      cross and break me,
      Bleed me, beat me, kill me, take me now -
      before I change my mind !..

Judas' Death

Caiaphas:   What you have done will be saving of Israel

         I shall be dragged through the slime and the mud.

         I don't know why he moves me
         He's a man - he's just a man
         He is not a King - he is just the same
         As anyone I know
         He scares me so
         When he's cold and dead will he let me be ?
         Does he love,does he love me too ?  Does he care for me ?

         My mind is in darkness now - My God, I'm sick
         I've been used and you knew ah, all the time
         God !  I'll never ever knows why you chose me for your crime

         You have murdered me !  You have murdered me !

Trial Before Pilate    (including the 39 lashes)

Pilate:   And so the King is once again my guest
-------   And why is this ?  Was Herod unimpressed ?

Caiaphas:   We turn to Rome to sentence Nazareth
---------   We have no law to put a man to death
            We need him crusified - it's all you have to do
            We need him crusified - it's all you have to do

Pilate:   Talk to me Jesus Christ
-------   You have been brought here - manacled,
          Beaten by your own people -
          C you have the first idea why you deserve it ?
          Listen King of the Jews
          Where is your kingdom ?
          Look at me - am I a Jew ?

Jesus:   I have got no kingdom in this world -
------   I'm through, through, through

Mob:   Talk to me Jesus Christ

Jesus:   There maybe a kingdom for me somewhere - if I only knew

Pilate:   Then you're a King ?

Jesus:   It's you that say I am
------   I look for truth and find that I get damned

Pilate:   But what is truth ?  Is truth unchanging law ?
-------   We both have truths - are mine the same of your ?

Mob:      Crusify him ! Crusify him !

Pilate:   What do you mean - you'd crusify your King ?

Mob:   We have no King but Caesar !

Pilate:   He's done no wrong - no not the slightest thing

Mob:   We have no King but Caesar !  Crusify him !

Pilate:   I see no reason - I find no evil
-------   This man is harmless so why does he upset you ?
          He's just misguided - thinks he's important
          But to keep you vultures happy I shall flog him

Mob:      Crusify him  ! Crusify him !


   Thirty nine lashes

Pilate:   Where are you from Jesus ?  What do you want Jesus ?
Tell me
-------   You're got to be careful - you could be dead soon -
          could well be
          Why do you not speak when I have your life in my hands
          How  can you stay quiet ?  I don't believe you understand

Jesus:   You have nothing in your hands
------   Any power you have comes to you from the beyong
         Everithing is fixed and you can't change it

Pilate:   You are fool Jesus Christ how can I help you ?

Mob:   Pilate, crusify him, crusify him !
----   Remember Caeser, you have a duty,
       You'll be devoted, crusify him  !
       You'll be deported, you have a duty
       To keep on peace, so crusify him !

Pilate:   Don't let me stop and great self-destruction
-------   Die if you want to, you, misguided martyr!
          I wash my hands of your demolition
          Die, if you want to,  innocent puppet !

PILATE'S DREAM (Pilate)

[4/4]
  Bbm       Ebm       Ab7
I dreamed I met a Galilean
  Bbm             Cb
A most amazing man
  F7        F7+      Gb              Ebm6
He had that look you very rarely find
    F7               Bbm
The haunting, hunted kind

  Bbm          Ebm          Ab7
I asked him to say what had happened
Bbm              Cb
How it all began
  F7      F7+     Gb               Ebm6
I asked again, he never said a word
  F7            Bbm
As if he hadn't heard

Bb           Bb7
And next the room was full
   Ebm               Ab
of wild and angry men
               Ab7
they seemed to hate this man
     Db (tacet)
they fell on him and then
F7 (tacet)
they disappeared again

Bbm        Ebm             Ab7
Then I saw thousands of millions
Bbm                Cb
crying for this man
    F7                Gb                Ebm6
And then I heard them mentioning my name
    F7             Bbm
And leaving me the blame

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOVE HIM (Mary Magdalene)

Note: The A9 in the last measure of each verse is actually an "A9sus (no
G)" Try fitting THAT over the word "else". Ah, limitations, limitations.
The chord is actually very easy to play if you use some untraditional
fingering/positioning across the progression of that line of the verse.

He scares me  so

[PSEUDOBRIDGE]

C7                                      E7
Should I bring him down
                        Am
Should I scream and shout
                          F
Should I speak of love
             C
Let my feelings out?
      C           A#         F          C
I never thought I'd come to this
F                    G
What's it all  about?

Don't you think it's rather funny

I should be in this position?

I'm the one  who's always been

G calm, so cool, no  lover's fool

Running every show

He scares me  so



Yet if he said he loved me

I'd be lost, I'd be frightened

I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope

I'd turn my head, I'd  back away

I wouldn't want to know

He scares me  so

I want him so

I love him so
