The Book Of Mormon
The Book of Mormon - All-American Prophet Tabbed by: damienos Tuning: Standard Capo on 1st fret In these parts without chords they're singing acapella, play along the song and you'll figure it out :) G You all know the Bible C G Is made of Testaments old and new G You been told it's just those two parts A D Or only one if you're a Jew G But what if I were to tell you C G There's a fresh third part out there G Which was found by a hip new prophet D Who had a little Donny Osmond flair? G C G Have you heard of the All-American Prophet? G C D The blonde-haired, blue-eyed voice of God D D C# C Am He didn't come from the Middle East F D Like those other holy men C F Bbsus2 Bbsus2 Bsus2 Csus2 F F# G No, God's favorite prophet was All-American F F# G I'm gonna take you back to Biblical times, 1823 An American man named Joe living on a farm In the holy land of Rochester, New York You mean the Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith? That's right, that young man spoke to God He spoke to God, and God said "Joe, people really need to know that the Bible Isn't two parts, there's a part three to the Bible, Joe And I, God, have anointed you to dig up this part three That is buried by a tree on a hill in your backyard" Wow, God says go to your backyard and start digging? That makes perfect sense G Joseph Smith went up on that hill C G And dug where he was told G And deep in the ground A D Joseph found shining plates of gold G "What are these Golden Plates? C G Who buried them here and why?" G Then appeared an Angel F F# G His name was Moroni "I am Moroni" G The All-American Angel G C D My people lived here long, long ago D D C# C Am This is a history of my race F D Please read the words within C F We were Jews who met with Christ Bbsus2 Bbsus2 Bsus2 Csus2 But we were All-American Csus2 But don't let anybody see these plates except for you Bbsus2 They are only for you to see Am Even if people ask you to show the Plates to them, don't Am Just copy them onto normal paper Am Even though this might make them question G# If the Plates are real or not Csus2 F F# G This is sort of what God is going for G Joseph took the Plates home C G And wrote down what he found inside G He turned those Plates into a book A D Then he rushed into town and cried G "Hey, God spoke to me and gave me C G This blessed ancient tome G He hath commanded me to publish it Bbsus2 Bsus2 Csus2 And stick it in every home" Wow, so the Bible is actually a trilogy And The Book of Mormon is Return of the Jedi? F F# G I'm interested Now many people didn't believe the Prophet Joseph Smith They thought he'd made up this part three That was buried by a tree on the hill in his backyard G "Liar" But Joe said "This is no lie G Speak to God all the time C G And he told me to head West" G "So I'll take my part three from the hill with the tree F# G Feel free if you'd like to come along with me F# G To the Promised Land" "The Promised Land?" "Paradise on the West Coast G Nothing but fruit and fields as far as the eye can see" G C G Have you heard of the All-American Prophet? G C D He found a brand new book about Jesus Christ D C# C Am We are following him to Paradise F D We call ourselves Mormon C F Bbsus2 E And our new religion is All-American Wow, how much does it cost? E The Mormons kept on searching for Am That place to settle down F And every time they thought they'd found it Bbm They got kicked out of town F# And even though people wanted Bm To see the Golden Plates G C Joseph never showed 'em I have maggots in my scrotum Umm okay, well, anyway Em Now comes the part of our story C G That get a little bit sad Em On the way to the Promised Land F D Mormons made people mad C Am Joseph was shot by an angry mob F D And knew he'd soon be done C Am G "You must lead the people now Bbsus2 F My good friend, Brigham Young" F Csus2 "Oh God, why are you letting me die Bsus2 Without having me show people the Plates Am They'll have no proof I was telling the truth or not G# They'll have to believe it just 'cause Csus2 Oh, I guess that's kinda what you were going for" A Dsus2 The Prophet Joseph Smith died for what he believed in A A But as followers, they kept heading West F#m Bsus2 And Brigham Young led them to Paradise E A D A A sparkling land in Utah they called Salt Lake City F#m A And there, the Mormons multiplied C#m And made big Mormon families F#m Generation to generation Bsus2 E Until finally, they made me A Dsus2 A And now it's my job to lead you Bm G Where those early settlers were led long ago Bb Eb Bb Have you heard of the All-American Prophet?
