Lyrics

PETER (YOU GIVE UP MUCH TOO EASILY)

A#dim-5 A13 A#dim-5 A13
Peter,
DM7 Adim GM7 G#dim7 F#m F#m-5
you give up much too easily

DM9 GM7 G#dim7 F#m F#m-5 DM7 Bm7 Cdim C#dim
I don?t give up quite so easily on you

A#dim-5 A13 A#dim-5 A13
Peter,

DM7 Adim GM7 G#dim7 F#m F#m-5
you give up much too easily

DM9 GM7 Bdim-5 A#-5 A13 DM7 Bm7 Cdim C#dim
I don?t give up quite so easily on you


DM9 GM7 G6 F#m F#m-5
I called you a rock
GM7 G6 F#m DM9
and you squared back your shoulders
GM7 G#dim7 F#m F#m-5 DM9 Bb-5 A-5 Ab-5 G6
And promised me that you would never fall
GM7 G6 F#m F#m-5 DM9 Bm7
But after the cock crowed, you wept like a child
Em7 Bbdim7 C#dim7 Bbdim7 DM7 Bm7 Cdim C#dim
You didn?t think you?d ever be a rock at all

You stepped out on faith, tried to walk upon the water
Hoping to get closer to me
But why did you doubt that I would come and save you
When you cried out from the angry sea?

I rose from the dead but you had gone a?fishing
So I went down to meet you by the shore
You thought it was over when they nailed me to the tree
Peter come and dine I really have much more
