Verse 1:
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       C    G      Cm G   G Gb  Gb F
Aaaaaaaaa    aaaaaaaaamen. Aaaaaaaamen. Amen
 
Chorus -x2-:
              Em
Take me to church
                                               B7
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 2:
Em                     Am
If I'm a pagan of the good times
Em                Am
My lover's the sunlight
G                    Am
To keep the Goddess on my side
Em               Am
She demands a sacrifice
D
To drain the whole sea
C
Get something shiny
 

Em                      Am            Em
Something meaty for the main course
                       Am          G
That's a fine looking high horse
                    Am        Em
What you got in the stable?
                         Am
We've a lot of starving faithful
D
That looks tasty
C
That looks plenty
C
This is hungry work
 
Interlude: G Gb  Gb F
 
Chorus -x2-:
              Em
Take me to church
                                               B7
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 Gb  Gb F
Oh, A- men. A- men. A- men
 
Chorus -x2-:
              Em
Take me to church
                                               B7
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

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

personwhocares:)

Sheryl Eiseinhower

I am very catholic, and that is very disrespectful. I do not approve of this. respect god, or you will face the consequences.

Lillian

he can do what they want. i agree, it is disrespectful, but maybe they don’t believe in a god.

Laney

Josiah Lau

No one can take a joke lol

jillian roy

Jacqueline

miles

sis nobody asked you to approve of anything

Oli

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

Noodles

o h m y g o o d n e s s, teach me your ways please~

Daniel Velasquez

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…

emma

lol shut up sheryl no one likes you

Laney

omg yeeeessssss lmaoooo

Very true

That is so true

I cant do the E chord!!!! UGH!!

OH MY GAWD yessss!!! Straight up facts rn!!!! I’m dying of laughter rn!!!😂😂

Did we ask ur opinion?

Its very disrespectful ang unholy of you to be so mean, and under gods watch you shouldnt be pressurng someone to something. you. are. the. unholy. one.

Laney

Laney

bro stop he’s fine he can do what he wants maybe he doesn’t prefer the religion and maybe this is his way to let his family know that he would rather support and have faith in another religion. Lol “face the consequences” what consequences are there to face??

eddies inhaler

caca.toes

LMAOOOO

Very true

EDDIES INHALER FROM IT OMGG AYYYY

caca.toes

this song isnt about god…. 💀

jax

I’m catholic and I can assure you we are taught that God doesn’t care about the type of music you sing

sis ur dumb

LMAO THIS SONG IS ABOUT A GAY COUPLE SHERLY SHUT THE DUCKUP LMAOOOOOO

Alexis E Taylor

no

Not all gays are pedos

make me

Haha ur mOmMm

O dam

Smile

I get it’s not with the catholic, but no need to go say that stuff.. it’s just a song. Most people just listen to it for fun

WeeGoblin

ive met god, he didnt have anything nice to say about you.

lbroere2

Child did he ask your opinion?
No
No he didn’t

It be like that sometimes

Just to be fair, if you didn’t want to see this, why are you on this song?

Uku-Celesta

Oop- she mad

Uke girl

I’m catholic too, and I’m sorry you found this disrespectful but this song isn’t about hating on people who are catholic. It’s about people who are catholic using their religion against people who are gay, lesbian, etc. It obviously doesn’t mean ALL Catholics, just the people who do.

Karens suck.

Ok, KAREN! Like, first off, chill, it was a joke! And secondly if you were that much of a catholic you wouldn’t be over here on this song. And lastly God created all humans which also regards to anyone of the LGBTQ community so if he really had a problem with them then he wouldn’t have created them. They’re here for a reason and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, so get comfy.

Hana

*God

payton

just because this person’s family is Catholic doesn’t mean they are. My mom is very Christian and I’m an atheist.

emma

wait why are you here then? and surely in your eyes if they’ve already “disrespected God” they will face the consequences. you don’t have to tell them

Pangirl21

i am also catholic but I believe that she can do whatever the heck she wants. End of sentence.

Pangirl21

Also I’m Pan AND catholic so. There’s that

ThatFemAltSkaterBoy

Everyone disliked that-

shellz

RyAn FrIcKiN rOsS

Ollie

Noah's_GayArk

haha I feel ya with the very Catholic relatives! SLAYYYY DATTT SONGGGGGG. lmao now i want to hehe

snodin

But like….how did it go…?

clarecolored

im Catholic… but yknow we gotta love a “good song” :)

Smile

I know, right??

Hopeless_shipper

I do find it a bit disrespectful(I think? I didn’t really see anything wrong with this song, but I haven’t really thought about the lyrics) but it just depends how uptight about it your family is I guess.

Btw, what I found disrespectful was you purposefully playing it even knowing theybwouldnt like it, but at the same time, you owe no respect to those who don’t go it to you in return and since I don’t know about your family situation, this whole comment is pretty much invalid.

Holy_Cookie

Wow, I’m happy that I’m from a country, where we have freedom of religion, and we treat LGBTQ+ people as human beings. ^^

sis I support you

POV: You’re looking for the strumming pattern

jabbababba

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

Hallo

Thank you I’m not going to go up and down or go through trying to memorize all of it cos I’m not Hozier and I don’t play ukulele with him at his concerts

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 ||-//

TerribleAtMostThings

Could you elaborate on this please? Like when to strum and How?

Heavy metal broke my DUN DUN
