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

  1. i think its a bit ridiculous that they just said -same as first- because now I have to write down that verse in particular MYSELF no thanks

  2. i like +4 just sung higher

  3. I AM PLAYING THIS SONG AT A FAMILY GATHERING IN THE PRESENCE OF MY VERY CATHOLIC RELATIVES AND NOBODY CAN STOP ME!!!!!!!!

  4. 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 ||-//

  5. Garret Howell

    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.

  6. TheLegand27

    What is the strumming pattern?

    • MoutacheBunny

      I dont have a specific pattern that works perfectly, but you could build off of D D DDUDU

  7. Ukuleleplayer10

    Strumming pattern?

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

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

  10. Hello, i was wondering if someone could post a good strumming pattern for this song

  16. spookyyjimm

    thank you!!

  17. Megalodonn

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
