Verse
-----

Am E E B

The E D# and B are all played once, pretty quickly. Listen to the record. I think you'd find it absolutely impossible to sing along to the verse. I know I do. Again, bar chords (as they almost always are). The fourth (and last) verse is slightly different. Instead of the above, play

Am Am B

If this doesn't work for you, just play the first version. No one will notice. Well, I will. But I won't tell anyone.

Chorus

------

B Am E G

Use the low E (022100) here as opposed to a higher one in the verse

Chorus 2

--------

D A D G

DItA wCasG during my 2nd senior year when Mom found Jesus Christ. His spirit was trapped inside an old manischevitz bottle that Mom picked out of the dumpster behind the 7-11. Mom brought the bottle inside and sat it down on top of the TV. Then she told all of us kids to gather round, and then she explained how Jesus lived in the bottle, and how, if she wanted to, she could call him out to do her bidding. Sis said it reminded her of an old TV show, and Mom slapped her and called her a heretic. I didn't say anything, cause I just still remember the time outside the Safeway, when it took 4 security guards to hold Mom down. BJesus loves me, yes I Amknow For the Bible tells me Eso When I'm weak he makes me Gstrong That's why I sing this Bsong If I die before I Amwake Pray to him my soul don't Etake Jesus loves me, yes I Gknow It wasn't long before people from all over the world started coming to our house to see the bottle. At first I thought that this would make me more popular at school. Instead it seemed to have the opposite result. Kids would stop and point at me in the hallway and say, "There's the boy whose mother keeps our savior cooped up in that tiny little bottle." And then everybody started calling me 'Bottle boy'. And that really hurt. It was also around this time that Mom began to attract some really weird followers. Like that guy who never used deodorant and spoke only in riddles. And that woman who collected 19th century hand made Amish swimwear. Jesus loves me, yes I know For the Bible tells me so When I'm weak he makes me strong That's why I sing this song If I die before I wake Pray to him my soul don't take Jesus loves me, yes I know DMommy she loved Jesus, but Anot like others did For she Dhad a special bottle in Gwhich our savior lived DMommy she loved Jesus, but Anot like others did For she could Cunleash His vengeance by unGfastening the lid As the year went on, things went from bad to worse, and I realized that if there wasn't a big change pretty soon, I'd never be able to get a date for the prom. I couldn't go the year before because Mom belonged to a church that considered dancing a one way ticket to Hell. But that's a whole nother story. Anyway, by this point Mom had appeared on the Richard Bay (sp) Show, A.M. Philadelphia and Geraldo, so there was no use in me changing schools, since everybody knew who my Mom was. Also we had to spend all the money from Mom's personal appearances to hire a bodyguard, since by this point we were getting about 400 death threats a day. Jesus loves me, yes I know For the Bible tells me so When I'm weak he makes me strong That's why I sing this song If I die before I wake Pray to him my soul don't take Jesus loves me, yes I know Then one night, I just couldn't stand it any more. While everyone else was sleeping I crept downstairs. Slowly I went up to the bottle and began to unfasten the lid. At first, nothing happened. But then the room filled with a thick white smoke. I was glad my sister had taken the batteries out of the smoke detector to put into her Walkman. When the smoke cleared, I found myself face to face with the son of God, who was much shorter than I had expected. He told me that since I'd freed Him, He'd grant me one wish. And that's how I got to go to the prom with Geena Davis. But you probably already read about that in People. Jesus loves me, yes I know For the Bible tells me so When I'm weak he makes me strong That's why I sing this song If I die before I wake Pray to him my soul don't take Jesus loves me, yes I know Mommy she loved Jesus, but not like others did For she had a special bottle in which our savior lived Mommy she loved Jesus, but not like others did For she could unleash His vengeance by unfastening the lid Mommy she loved Jesus, but not like others did For she had a special bottle in which our savior lived Mommy she loved Jesus, but not like others did For she could unleash His vengeance by unfastening the lid End on G#m.
