Chorus

Am              G                     F          G

Can’t kill the preacher in a man of God

Am              G                 F      G

He will be heard somehow

Am                      G                   F                  G

You can shoot a reverend or a man of the cloth

               Am               G           F      G

But you can’t kill the preacher

Am                 G                  F                   G

Can’t kill the preacher in a man of God

Am          G                 F       G

The Holy Ghost won’t die

Am                  G                    F             G

There ain’t no way to terminate his job

            Am                G            F    G

No you can’t kill the preacher

Am                 F                   G           Am

Can’t kill the preacher in a man of God

 

Vs. 1

  F

You can take away the pulpit and the church building too

 

Take everything that seems important to you

 D

Take his credentials but you can’t touch the essentials

B7                                              E7

Write him off forever but you’ll never, never

 

(Chorus)

 

Vs. 2

              F

You can throw him to the lions you can lock him away

 

‘Cause you don’t want to hear what the preacher has to say

D

Even though you may not want to he will come back to haunt you

                  B7                                           E7

You can chop off his head he’ll still be talking when he’s dead
