    Am
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, what have I done?

I've fallen in love with a man on the run
    Am
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I'm begging you please
       Dm                   Am
Don't take that sinner from me
         Dm                   Am
Oh don't take that sinner from me


    Am
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, what do I do?
       G                                   Am
I've fallen for someone who's nothing like you
       Am
He's raised on the edge of the devil's backbone
     Dm                     Am
Oh I just want to take him home
     Dm                     Am
Oh I just want to take him home


Am   G  Dm  Am
Oooooooooh
Am   G  Dm  Am
Oooooooooh


    Am
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, he's somewhere between
     G                                 Am
a hangman's knot, and three mouths to feed
        Am
There wasn't a wrong or a right he could choose
   Dm                 Am
He did what he had to do
   Dm                 Am
He did what he had to do


Am   G  Dm  Am
Oooooooooh
Am   G  Dm  Am
Oooooooooh


Am                  G
Give me the burden, give me the blame
      Dm                          F
I'll shoulder the load, and I'll swallow the shame
Am                   G
Give me the burden, give me the blame
     Dm                   F
How many, how many Hail Mary's is it gonna take?


       Am
Don't care if he's guilty, don't care if he's not
       G                                        Am
He's good and he's bad, and he's all that I've got
    Am
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I'm begging you please
      Dm                    Am
Don't take that sinner from me
         Dm                   Am
Oh don't take that sinner from me

  1. I like these chords better for the verses:
    Am. C.
    G. E.
    Am. C.
    Dm E. A.
    Dm E. A.

    It just fills in a few of the gaps

  2. I’ve found that it sounds better if you don’t play the Am for so long (like at ‘Don’t care if he’s guilty don’t care if he’s not). Instead, play an Am and then a C
