The chords are in the link

THE CROSS IN THE MIDDLE

NOW THERE ARE NO SIGN OF THE CROSSES
BUT HISTORY RECORDS THERE WERE THREE
TWO STOOD BECAUSE---OF MEN'S BROKEN LAWS
BUT I KNOW THE OTHER----STOOD THERE FOR ME
I DID'NT KNOW PETER OR JUDAS,
BUT I'VE KNOW THE SHAME OF THEIR CRIMES
I'M SO GLAD JESUS DID--DIE IN MY STEAD
BUT THE CROSS IN THE MIDDLE---SHOULD HAVE BEEN MINE

I NEVER DESERVED THE MERCY
OR MERITED SO MUCH GRACE
AND THIS UNWORTHY MAN-CAN'T UNDERSTAND
WHY THAT MAN OF NO WRONG, TOOK MY RIGHTFUL PLACE
AND IF YOU EVER STOPPED AT CALV'RY
THE BLOOD ISN'T ALL YOU WILL FIND
FOR YOU'D FEEL IT TOO,
WHY I FEEL LIKE I DO
THE CROSS IN THE MIDDLE--SHOULD HAVE BEEN MINE

I NEVER HEARD THE HAMMER, I NEVER FELT THE NAILS
I NEVER SAW--THE ANGRY MOB-CURSE AS THE PRISONERS FELL
THEY NEVER KNEW THIS SINNER
I WAS SOME OTHER PLACE AND TIME
THE CHOICE WAS ALL HIS
BUT THE TRUTH WAS AND IS
THE CROSS IN THE MIDDLE--SHOULD HAVE BEEN MINE

TAG:

THE CHOICE WAS ALL HIS
BUT THE TRUTH WAS AND IS
THE CROSS IN THE MIDDLE --SHOULD HAVE BEEN MINE
