Take Me To Church Acoustic

Track Info

[Verse]
Em Am Em My lover's got humour
Am G She's the giggle at a funeral
Am Em Knows everybody's disapproval
Am Em I should've worshipped her sooner
Am Em If the Heavens ever did speak
Am G She is the last true mouth piece
Am Em Every Sunday's getting more bleak
Am D A fresh poison each week
C 'We were born sick,
Em
You heard them say it
Am Em My church offers no absolutes
Am G She tells me 'worship in the bedroom'
Am Em The only heaven I'll be sent to
Am D Is when I'm alone with you
C I was born sick,

But I love it
Command me to be well
G C G Aaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaamen.

Cm G
Aaaaaaaamen.

Cm6 G G5 F#5 F#5 F5
Amen
[Chorus]
Em Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the

B
Shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so

G
You can sharpen your knife
Am Offer me that deathless death
Em Good God, let me give

G5 F#5 F#5 F5
You my life
Em Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the

[Verse]
Em Am If I'm a pagan of the good times
Em Am My lover's the sunlight
G Am To keep the Goddess on my side
Em Am She demands a sacrifice
D To drain the whole sea
C Get something shiny
Em Am Em Something meaty for the main course
Am G That's a fine looking high horse
Am Em What you got in the stable?
Am We've a lot of starving faithful
D That looks tasty
C That looks plenty This is hungry work [Chorus] Em Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at the
B
Shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so
G
You can sharpen your knife
Am Offer me that deathless death
Em Good God, let me give

[Bridge]
C G No masters or kings when

B7 Em
The ritual begins
C G There is no sweeter innocence

B7 Em
Than our gentle sin
C G In the madness and soil of that

B7 Em
Sad earthly scene
C G Only then I am human
B7 Em Em/D Cmaj7 C Only then I am clean
G C G Cm G Cm6 G G5 F#5 F#5 F5 Oh, A- men. A- men. A- men [Chorus]

Shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so

You can sharpen your knife
Am Offer me that deathless death Em Good God, let me give

You my life
Em
