Three Rusty Nails
Intro. G C G
C G C G
Two thousand years~ ago, you sent your son, you wanted us to understand
C G Am G D
That whoever so would believe in him, would be safe in his hands
With three rusty nails and an old, Dogwood tree
The sacrifice was made, for you and me
C Em D C
We were afraid to say, that, he was the one~
Am D G
What have we done, to your son
Oh how it hurts when someone laughs at you
There words can cut you like a knife
Just think of all the shame we put him through
Guess he gave more than his life
Well we know not what we do, we know not what we say
Am G C D
We'll never know the price he paid to take our sins away
With 3 rusty nails and an old Dogwood tree

welcome, I think I have it pretty close...

that who so ever would believe in him...
would be safe in his hands...

In the chorus on the phrase, "he was the one" lift your finger on that b
string in the A chord on the word "was"...there's a lot of that on this
song in all the chords, it's country sweet...Enjoy
