Thanks to Chris for the words and recording. 

Intro (Em) (G) (Am) (Em)  Follow pattern of first line 

(Em) Mother why do (G) I (Am) have to sleep on the (Em) ground 
A pillow of (G) straw (Am) and the dampness all a-(B7)-round 
Why do (Am) other kids mock me and (D) put me down 
Why (Am) do the shepherds bring me gifts from (B7) miles around 
(Em) Mother why do (G) I (Am) have to sleep on the (Em) ground 

Daddy why do (G) I (Am) have to work so hard in (Em) wood 
I'd like to help the (G) world (Am) and some people say I (B7) could 
I'd (Am) heal all the sick and make the (D) blind to see 
Id (Am) make the lame to walk and then the (B7) dumb to speak 
(Em) Daddy why do (G) I (Am) have to work so hard in (Em) wood 

Instrumental Break -  Follow pattern of any main verse 

(C) Wise men all (G) say that I'm (D) wise beyond my (B7) years 
I see (C) angels in my (G) dreams and they (A) tell me why I'm (B7) here 

(Em) Father I know (G) why (Am) I have to carry the (Em) cross 
'Cause it's the only (G) way (Am) that I can save the world from (B7) loss 
I'll (Am) carry your message through the (D) best I can 
But it (Am) seems the stones are thrown at me by (B7) every man 
(Em) Father I know (G) why (Am) I have to carry the (Em) cross
