5  5   -4  4  5 -4
I once was a Baptist 
-4  4   -3   4 -4   4
and on each Sunday morn
 4  4  5    6    -6 -5
I'd be in church praying 
7   7   -7  -6     6
as sure as you're born.
 5    5    -4    4   5  5
We'd sing there like angels 
5   5     5   -5 6 -6
in that sweet harmony
7    7   -7  -6 6 -6
But sin and salvation 
 5  5   -5 5  -4  4
are no longer for me.
  4    4   5  6  -6  -5
Cause now I'm a Buddhist 
-6 -6   -6 -6 6    -5   6
I chant my mantra each day
 6 -5  5    -5   6    6  -6
But I miss that hymn singing 
6   6   6  -5 5   -4
in that old Gospel way.
5    5    5   -4  4  5   5
So we’ll sing to old Buddha 
 5   5   5  -5  6   -6
and the wonders of Zen.
  7    7   -7 -6 6 -6
We'll meet in Nirvana, 
 6   -5   5    -4   4
yes we'll be there then.


Now my old friends don't like me 
since I shaved my head
and they all talk about me 
as if I were dead.
My good old Zen buddies 
they think I'm ok,
But I can't get them singing 
more than one note a day.
We sit here cross legged 
eating brown rice and cheese
and we chant out our mantra 
in four square harmony.
We don't sing of salvation 
or a heavenly home.
It's Zen gospel singing, 
just Om Om, sweet Om.
