VERSE 1
N.C        E                          A     E
Well, your eyes just haven't been the same, Joseph
                                A     C#m
Are you bad at dealing with the fame, Joseph?
          B           A         E/G#        B
There's a pale moon - shine a - bove you,
       E/G#     C#m            A             B
Do you see both sides? Do they shove you a - round?
 
VERSE 2
B      E                         A     E
Is the touchstone forcing you to hide, Joseph?
                               A     C#m
Are the rumours eating you a - live, Joseph?
         B    A            E/G#      B
When the holy night is u - pon you,
         E/G#      C#m             A         B
Will you do what's right, the po - sition is yours?
 
CHORUS 1
B        G      C            G/D      C/E
From the temple walls to the New York night,
    G/B       D         C
Our decisions rest on a child.
         G        C
When she took her stand,
        G/B       C/E
Did she hold your hand?
          G/B         D                C
Will your faith stand still or run a - way, 
        G
Run a - way?

VERSE 3
C#m          E             A
When they've driven you so far, 
         E/B
That you think you're gonna drop,
       E             A                 C#m
Do you wish you were back there at the     carpenter shop?
         B             A
With the plane and the lathe, 
         E/G#            B
The work never drove you mad.
         E/G#            C#m
You're a maker, a crea - tor, 
         A            B
Not just   somebody's dad

B        G      C            G/D      C/E
From the temple walls to the New York night,
         G/B     D         C
Our de - cisions rest on a man.
       G        C
When I take the stand,
        G/B     C/E
Will he hold my hand?
        G/B         D                C
Will my faith stand still or run a - way, 
        E
Run a - way?
 
BRIDGE
E       A
And the desert, 
       B                       E        C#m
It's a hell of a place to find heaven
A                       B                            C#m
Forty years lost in the wilderness looking for God
        A                       B
And you climb to the top of the mountain
                    B      E
Looking down on the city,
      F#/A#    A
Where you were born
                                      B
All the years since you left gave you time to sit back and reflect
 
OUTRO
E         A        E/G#        B
   Better you than me, (better you than me)
E         A        E/G#  B
   Better you than me, yeah
         E    A            E/G#            B           (E)
When the holy night is u - pon you (Better you, better you)
       E        A              E/G#          B        E
Do you see both sides? Do they shove you a - round?
       A            E/G#     B
Better you than me, Joseph,
       E                    A
Better you than me, (better you than me)
E/G#            E       A
Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph
     E/G#
Than me, 
       B
Better you than me
E         A
   Better you than me
       E/G#        B
Better you, better you than me
           E
Well, your eyes just haven't been the same, Joseph
