Strange Man(Chords)

Jerry Garcia Band

Key: A
verse 1 

A 
A Samarian woman came running to the city 
  D                      A 
To talk about the man she saw 

She took her pitcher and went to the well 
B7                E 
Water she intended to draw 
        A                                                    D 
Well the stranger she met there, she didn't know where he came from 
      Ebdim                              A 
But he told her every sinful thing she had done 
B7        E            A  D  A 
Blessed my soul and was gone 

verse 2 

A                              E 
Her friends in town asked her 'Do you know the man?' 
    A        D      A 
She said 'No I never saw him before.' 
                E 
They asked her 'But did you get his name?' 
                    A          D      A 
She said 'He didn't tell me and I don't know.' 
      D 
Oh but when he spoke my soul caught on fire 
    A                  C            D          Ebdim 
And I'll remember this day until the day that I die 
A                        E    A        D  A 
He stopped by to bless my soul and was gone 

verse 3 

A 
The stranger was next seen in our city 
      D                    A 
He was standing off an angry mob 
                                                        B7 
Defending a woman who'd been caught in the very act of adultery 
                  E 
For pity and mercy she sought 
        A                                                     
He said 'Ye who is without sin, cast the stone!' 
            D.                        Ebdim                          D  A 
And when he raised her from the ground all her accusers they were gone 
                    B7      E    A          D  A 
He gave her a smile, waved farewell and was gone 

verse 4 

A                              E 
Her friends in town asked her 'Do you know the man?' 
    A        D      A 
She said 'No I never saw him before.' 
                E 
They asked her 'But did you get his name?' 
                    A          D      A 
She said 'He didn't tell me and I don't know.' 
        D 
Whoa but when he touched me I felt the power from the arms 
    A              C#        D      Ebdim 
And I don't plan or can or do no wrong 
A                  B7      E      A      D  A 
Glad he stopped by, blessed my soul and was gone

VERSE 5 

A                            E 
This time the crowd asked her 'Don't you know the man?' 
    A        D      A 
She said 'No I never saw him before.' 
                E 
They asked her 'But did you get his name?' 
                    A          D      A 
She said 'He didn't tell me and I don't know.' 
        D 
Whoa but when he touched me I felt the power from the arms 
    A              C#        D      Ebdim 
And I don't plan or can or do no wrong 
A                      B7      E      A      D  A 
I'm glad he stopped by, blessed my soul and was gone
