                =============================================
I didn't place chord to lyric timing for the last verse. Listen to the song to catch it
I hand wrote this out from notes a very generous gentleman shared with me at a Tim
Mandolin Workshop Dec 12th, 2009. Sir, I lost your card, otherwise I would have 
find this, please give me a shout.
One of the biggest bits of advice I got out of the workshop, was practice scales EVERY
Even Sam Bush practices scales every day to keep limber and maintain muscle memory. I've
playing chords filled out with extending notes in the same scale, and found I'm working 
hard. Think about playing as scales with chords to fill the in between, and you'll
it alot easier and smoother. Atleast my brain understands this thinking better. If 
wants to share thoughts on other Tim songs, please shoot me an email. I half know a few 
that aren't finished enough to post. Looking for help with all of Fiddler's Green songs.
Thanks again Tim for everything! Bless you!

Here's a little story and it goes like this
G          D      A          A7
Jesus betrayed by Judas' kiss
D               G         D
Jesus needs him don't you see
       G        D         A  Bm
In the midnight garden of a--gony
       G        D         A     D
   the midnight garden of a--gony
   G                          D
He says there's a job I gotta do
    G         D             A             A7
And I'm gonna need a little help from you
   D                   G          D
If I'm gonna free this world from sin
G        D             A       Bm
Somebody gonna have to turn me in
G        D             A       D
Somebody gonna have to turn me in

Chorus:
G                          D
Father forgive me I never knew
        G        D                 A    A7
I never saw that comin, no I never do
  D                 G        D
I bow my head and I say your name
G           D         A      Bm
 I'm just a pawn in a bigger game
G           D         A      D
 I'm just a pawn in a bigger game

       D                          G       D
Well I had me some friends with a big old band
          G            D       A            A7
They were lookin for a fiddler and his hand
     D                         G       D
They had all the girls and the cocaine too
    G      D                 A     Bm
Got out my rig and showed'em all I knew
G           D             A     D
Took out my fiddle played all I knew
      G                          D
Never got that gig even though I tried
          G       D       A               A7
Well it's just as well, I might have died
D                    G         D
Things aren't always what they seem
         G         D           A         Bm
When you walk in a fog and you live in a dream
    G         D           A         D
You walk in a fog and you live in a dream, that's me

G                          D
Father forgive me I never knew
        G        D                 A    A7
I never saw that comin, no I never do
          D               G        D
I'm gonna bow my head and say your name
G       D         A      Bm
 Just a pawn in a bigger game
G           D         A      D
 I'm just a pawn in a bigger game

Little bee buzzin around a flower
Has no idea it's his finest hour
Has no idea about the greater scheme
He's just suckin up nectar for the queen
Suckin up nectar for the queen
And that first time you spoke to me
I couldn't know how big our love could be
Who knew how far love could go
Where it ends we'll never know
Where it ends we'll never know

G                          D
Father forgive me I never knew
        G        D                 A    A7
I never saw that comin, no I never do
          D               G        D
I'm gonna bow my head and say your name
G       D         A      Bm
 Just a pawn in a bigger game
G           D         A      D
 I'm just a pawn in a bigger game
