William

C  Em  C7    F  G  x2

C          Em
Ol' William in school
C7                  F                   G
Readin' a Bible, we laughed till we was blue
C           Em
Ol' William said a prayer at noon
C7                    F              G
Over his lunch and we hit him with a spoon

Am
Yes, William, the kids were cruel
     Em
But, I saw something different in you
      Am
The impression you made put the seed in me
       F                G         C     Em   C7    F  G
That began to grow when I first believed

C          Em
Ol' William on the street
     C7                            F           G
Hymn singin', testifyin', and they called him "preacher"
C           Em
I was there when they put him down
      C7               F          G
But I want to say that I've come around

Am
Yes, William, the kids were cruel
    Em 
But, I saw something different in you
      Am
The impression you made put the seed in me
       F                G         C     Em  C7   F  G 
That began to grow when I first believed

Am
Now, William, ain't it strange
Dm
After all these years
Am
I'm doing the very same things
  Dm
I laughed about way back there
Em
And the example you set
       Am
Causes me to want to be
    Dm                  G
The same kind of livin' testimony

C           Em
Oh, William, I wish you were here
     C7           F           G
I'd apologize for callin' you weird
    C               Em           Am
But I'm sure you forgave me even then
                           Dm       G
So I love you William, like my best friend

Am
Yes, William, the kids were cruel
    Em
But, I saw something different in you
      Am
The impression you made put the seed in me
       F                G         C     Em    C7   F  G
That began to grow when I first believed
C   Em    C7   F  G  repeat to end
