admin's picture
Key: Em

Verse 1:
         Em      D         Am7
Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day
    Em                  D              C
The soldiers tried to clear the narrow street
        Am9                 G
But the crowd pressed in to see
    D/F#             B7          Em
The Man condemned to die on Calvary

Verse 2:
       Em              D
He was bleeding from a beating,
There were stripes upon His back
       Em                D             C
And He wore a crown of thorns upon His head
       Am9             G
And He bore with every step
    D/F#               B7                Esus  E
The scorn of those who cried out for His death

         Am       Bsus  B7           Em          Em7/D
Down the Via Dolorosa     called the way of suffering
       C9                Bsus  B7         Em  E7/G#
Like a lamb came the Messiah,  Christ the King,
       Am7                Bsus  B7
But He chose to walk that road out of
    Em       D       C  (B7)
His love for you and me.
         Em      D             C  Bsus   B7  Em
Down the Via Dolorosa, all the way   to Calvary.

    B                            C
The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
         D          D/Eb       Em      E
Made its way to the heart of Jerusalem.
