MIDNIGHT CHOIR (Mogen David)
Larry Gatlin And The Gatlin Brothers Band
[D] The doors to the mission open at seven
And the soup will be ready about [A7] nine
Right now its six-thirty, they're ragged and dirty
They standin' and sittin', and layin' in [D] line
First they'll do a little singin', then hear a little preachin'
And get saved for the 3rd time this [G] week
A bowl of soup later and a [D] pat on the shoulder
And by [A7] midnight, they're back on the [D] street.
[D] They walk to the corner of 4th street and Broadway
Then take the first alley on the [A7] right
One of them asks a stranger, how 'bout a hand
And he gives 'em one finger at a [D] time
Then they spot an old buddy, with a bottle of heaven
Then pass around what means ev'ry-[G] thing
One bottle for four, thank [D] God, someone scored
And now the [A7] Midnight Choir starts to [D] sing.
CHORUS: A CAPPELLA
Will they have Mogen David in heaven
Dear Lord, we'd all like to know
Will they have Mogen David in heaven, Sweet Jesus
If they don't, who the hell wants to go.
Will they [G] have Mogen David in [D] heaven
[E] Dear Lord, we'd all like to [A7] know
Will they [G] have Mogen David in [D] Heaven, Sweet [G] Jesus
If they [D] don't, who the [A7] hell wants to [D] go.
Oh! ... [G] (Come on now...)
TAG: If they [D] don't, who the [A7] hell wants to [G] go, [D] Dear God.
