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                      Em 
'We were born sick, 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       Cm       G      Cm G   G Em
Aaaaaaaaa    aaaaaaaaamen. Aaaaaaaamen. Amen

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

Bridge:
C            G                B7           Em
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
        C            G             B7           Em
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
        C            G          B7           Em
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
     C          G          
Only then I am human


      B7           Em     D     C
Only then I am clean


G      C     G   Cm  G    Cm G   G Em
Amen. Amen. Amen

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

Haha, you sound like my mother. I used to be Catholic, but i left and became a pagan so here is my advice
1) Your opinions are different than theirs, and Im sure nobody is going to “face consequences” because of it
2) NOBODY ASKED
3) have a lovely day

I am very atheist, and that is very disrespectful. I do not approve of this. Respect me, or you will face nothing because there’s absolutely nothing that I could say or do to you that would matter on the internet, much less a ukulele website…

HAHA IM PERFORMING THIS SONG IN MY CATHOLIC SCHOOL FOR THE MUSIC COMPETITION

Tøp is life ||-//
Guest
Tøp is life ||-//

In The verses i prefer playing Em, Am Em, Am G, C Em

And also for the strumming pattern in the beginning is just down and when it turns a little more heavy, it’s D, D DUD. And for the chorus you can either do pure down strums or you can do D DU

(For the bridge just do pure down strums too) Hope this helped! ;3 ||-//

im about to blow yalls mind but this song is about Macbeth its a shakespeare play about this guy who get this prophecy from these witches and goes crazy killing people with his wife. so when it says ‘worship in the bedroom’ this means pray over the king before you kill him.

Guest

that’s interesting!! i don’t think the song is actually about macbeth (i’m pretty sure worship in the bedroom refers to… you know……) but i can totally see how that works!! i’m a bit of a shakespeare geek so that’s a really interesting interpretation of this song. if you want more shakespeare/hozier crossovers, the song “shrike” really reminds me of horatio

Lillian

errr…i’m sorry to break it to you, but…
