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

Command me to be well
GG chord      CC chord     GG chord       CmCm chord       GG chord      CmCm chord GG chord   GG chord EmEm chord
Aaaaaaaaa    aaaaaaaaamen. Aaaaaaaamen. Amen

Chorus:
              EmEm chord
Take me to church                 
                                               BB chord
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                GG chord
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 AmAm chord
Offer me that deathless death
     EmEm chord                       AmAm chord GG chord GG chord GbGb chord
Good God, let me give you my life

Verse -same as first-:
If I'm a pagan of the good times
My lover's the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
To drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That's a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We've a lot of starving faithful
That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Chorus:
              EmEm chord
Take me to church                 
                                               BB chord
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                GG chord
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 AmAm chord
Offer me that deathless death
     EmEm chord                       AmAm chord GG chord GG chord GbGb chord
Good God, let me give you my life

CC chord            GG chord                B7B7 chord           EmEm chord
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
        CC chord            GG chord             B7B7 chord           EmEm chord
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
        CC chord            GG chord          B7B7 chord           EmEm chord
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
     CC chord          GG chord          
Only then I am human


      B7B7 chord           EmEm chord     DD chord     CC chord
Only then I am clean

    The great thing about this song is you don’t really need a shopping pattern you can just run them down once for each chord.

  2. TheLegand27

    What is the strumming pattern?

  3. Ukuleleplayer10

    Strumming pattern?

  4. I’ve found +5 and -2 to be the easiest in terms of simple fingerings.

  5. Does anyone know the strumming to the song? If so, please let me know, thanks.

  12. spookyyjimm

    thank you!!

  13. Megalodonn

    Sounds amazing but is c minor correct? It sounds out of place in this context

  14. Spat.Out.Monster

    Also chords are the same for the second verse, you guys probably aren’t just playing it correctly.
    Look the ukulele teacher.
    His tutorial is exactly like this.

  15. Spat.Out.Monster

    I promise you, this is super easy if you just practice and it sounds wonderful in the end too. The Gb isn’t necessary, forget it. At the end of each chorus just play G and shift up a fret. You can also do away with the extra chords at the end of certain lines in the bridge. This is a good beginner song to test chord memory. Literally just practice and you’ll be fine.
