C C D D Em Em D D
C C D D Em Em

[Verse 1]
C C D D
Oh, to see without my eyes
Em Em D D
The first time that you kissed me
C C D D
Boundless by the time I cried
Em Em D D
I built your walls around me
C C D D
White noise, what an awful sound
Em Em D D
Fumbling by Rogue River
C C D D
Feel my feet above the ground
Em Em D D
Hand of God, deliver me

Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me

The first time that you touched me

Oh, will wonders ever cease?

Blessed be the mystery of love

C C D D Em Em

[Verse 2]
C C D D
Lord, I no longer believe
Em Em D D
Drowned in living waters
C C D D
Cursed by the love that I received
Em Em D D
From my brother's daughter
C C D D
Like Hephaestion, who died
Em Em D D
Alexander's lover
C C D D
Now my riverbed has dried
Em Em D D
Shall I find no other?

[Chorus 2]
Am Am D D
Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me
G G D D
I'm running like a plover

Now I'm prone to misery

The birthmark on your shoulder reminds me

[Verse 3]
C C D D
How much sorrow can I take?
Em Em D D
Blackbird on my shoulder
C C D D
And what difference does it make
Em Em D D
When this love is over?
C C D D
Shall I sleep within your bed
Em Em D D
River of unhappiness
C C D D
Hold your hands upon my head
Em Em D D
Till I breathe my last breath

[Chorus 3]
Am Am D D
Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me
G G D D
The last time that you touched me
Am Am D D
Oh, will wonders ever cease?
G G D D C C
Blessed be the mystery of love

personally i do an easy plucking pattern: C E A E so third second first second string. I do it twice on each chord and do it once for C and once for G when the tab says "C/G"
