Performed By Bruce Springsteen

Intro
D G D A D

VERSE 1
  D          G         D 
Well Jesus was an only son        
                         G
As he walked up Calvary Hill 
D                        G      D
His mother Mary walking beside him          
                      A        D     
In the path where his blood spilled        


VERSE 2
  D         G      D 
Jesus was an only son 
                      G
In the hills of Nazareth 
D                     G          D
As he lay reading the Psalms of David
              A        D     
Held at his mother's feet 


VERSE 3
  D                               G             D 
His mother prayed sleep tight, my child, sleep well 
                     G
For I'll be at your side 
D                           G           D
Let no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell 
                    A          D     
Shall pierce your dreams this night 


VERSE 4
  D             G        D 
In the garden at Gethsemane 
                                  G
He prayed for the life he'd never live 
D                 G          D
He beseeched his heavenly Father 
                            A        D     
To remove the cup of death from his lips 


VERSE 5
  D                         G        D 
Now there's a loss that can never be replaced 
                                    G
A destination that can never be reached 
D                             G         D
A light you'll never find in a mother's face 
                         A           D     
The sea whose distance cannot be breached 

  D G D A D


VERSE 6
                      G         D 
Well, Jesus kissed his mother's hands 
                                        G
And whispered, mother please still your tears 
D                                 D
For remember the soul of the universe 
                   A      D     
Willed a world and it appeared.

About the artist behind Jesus Was An Only Son Chords:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
