Em Em             C C
My lover's got humour
Em Em C C
She's the giggle at a funeral
G G C C
Knows everybody's disapproval
Em Em C C
I should've worshiped her sooner

Em Em C C
If the Heavens ever did speak
Em Em C C
She is the last true mouthpiece
G G C C
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
Em Em C C
A A fresh poison each week
Am Am C C
We were born sick, you heard them say it

Em Em C C
My church offers no absolutes
Em Em C C
She tells me worship in the bedroom
G G C C
The only heaven I'll be sent to
Em Em C C
Is when I'm alone with you

Am Am C C
I was born sick, but I love it
C C
Command me to be well
G G,C C,G G C C,G G C C,G G
Amen. Amen. Amen

Em Em
Take me to church
B B
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
G G
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
C C
Offer me that deathless death
Em Em
Good God, let me give you my life
(X2)

Em Em Am Am
If I'm a pagan of the good times
Em Em Am Am
My lover's the sunlight
G G C C
To keep the Goddess on my side
G G C C
She demands a sacrifice
Am Am
To drain the whole sea
C C
Get something shiny

Em Em Am Am
Something meaty for the main course
Em Em Am Am
That's a fine looking high horse
G G C C
What you got in the stable?
Em Em C C
We've a lot of starving faithful

Am Am
That looks tasty
C C
That looks plenty
C C
This is hungry work

Em Em
Take me to church
B B
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
G G
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
C C
Offer me that deathless death
Em Em
Good God, let me give you my life
(X2)

Am Am G G B B Em Em
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
Am Am G G B B Em Em
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
Am Am G G B B Em Em
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Am Am G G
Only then I am human
B B Em Em
Only then I am clean

(Em Em,G G,Am Am,C C) # (Strum each 4X)

G G,C C,G G C C,G G C C,G G
Amen. Amen. Amen

[Chorus x2]

after mild revision, the pattern DUDU is easiest to play if you (like me) are untalented in multi-tasking and would like to sing at the same time; however if you prefer to not sing DDUDDU works very well.

I use the strum pattern DUDU, altering the speed for different sections.
