Lyrics and Chords: 3rd capo C Intro: (verse 1 as from ‘the king and his wife’ to the end )

3C D G Em

Hey diddle-diddle, caught up in the middle,

Am D G

Elijah hid in a cave.

C D

The king and his wife were

G Em

still after his life,

Am D G C*

and Elijah no longer felt brave. No!

G D G

Elijah no longer felt brave. Am D G C * G D G

Hey diddle-li, Elijah replied,

that he was afraid to die.

God said, “Stand on the hill

don’t speak, just be still,

for the Lord is about to pass by.

Yes! For the Lord is about to pass by

Hey diddle-dum, the prophet looked glum,

when a wild wind started to rave.

An earthquake or two,

some fire ripped through,

and Elijah no longer felt safe.

No! Elijah no longer felt safe.

Hey diddle-doo, a breeze floated through,

so gently from God on its way.

Then a still small voice,

gave Elijah no choice.

He walked out to the mouth of the cave.

Yes! He knew that God must be obeyed.
