23rd Psalm

23rd Psalm- 1977 Public Domain Foundation, Inc.
Adapt. and arranged: Stookey

A printer friendly .pdf version of this song is available. It requires a free copy of Adobe Reader. You can get the reader at www.adobe.com

These fingerings are not chords to be strummed, but rather picked in a two
or three finger style. Note that Noel almost always ignores the first (or high-E) string.
To match the pitch of the recorded version you must tune DOWN 1/2 step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb).
Noel throws in many two-fingered hammer-ons using the first and second fingers, particularly when moving
from the '1' chord to the '2' chord.

INTRO



1  2  3  2  1



       

    1          2           3     2   1

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want





                        

                    6             7

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures



           

   1                     6 4     6

He leadeth me beside the still waters



    

       7   6      1 2 1

He re-stor-eth my soul





10  9  3  9  10  9  3  9

 O--O--O--O--O--O--O---H



 

   10         9      3        9         10       9          3 9 10

He leadeth me in the paths of righteous-ness for His name's sake





                                 

    7                             6             2         6

And yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death



      

          1  2      1             6  4  6

I fear no evil; for Thou art with me



            



    7           6              1  2  1  2  1

Thy rod and Thy staff they com-fort me







10  9  3  9  10  9  3  9

 O--O--O--O--O--O--O---H

         1        2        3       2      1        6       7

Thou pre-parest a table be-fore me in the presence of mine enemies



            



     1                       6  4  6

Thou annointest my head with oil



    



   7   6        1  2  1  2  1

My cup runneth over

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life



              

    7                     6           5        6  1  2  1

And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever
