lyrics

G C D G

a rich young man came to jesus christ and asked
what should I do to get life, life eternal
you know the commandments jesus replied
do not steal, do not kill do not commit adultery
yes I do know them hè said I followed them all, all of my life
jesus said well then there's one more thing tnat you have to do

G
sell everything you have
C
and give it to the poor
G
yeah everything you have
D
get rid of it
G
sell everything you have
C
and give it to the poor
G D G
and you shall live

jesus said do this and follow me
and you'll have a great treasure in heaven
but the rich young man became very sad
for he did posses great wealth on earth
and hè preferred it over the life
over the life eternal

G C
easier it is for a camel
G D
to go through the eye of the needie
G C
than for a rich man to enter
G D G
the kingdom of heaven

sell everything...

and if jesus christ would be here today
and preach the same words as he did back then in gallilee
we probably would kill him and lay him i a grave again
like good old woody sung years ago
we still don't want to near those ïsords
and explain them away if we read then...

sell everything...

easier it is for a camel...
