Lyrics and Guitar Chords Hozier - Take Me To Church

Am                  Dm     Am
      My lover's got humour
                   Dm      C
She's the giggle at a funeral
                 Dm         Am
Knows everybody's disapproval

                          Dm      Am
I should've worshipped her sooner
                   Dm        Am
If the Heavens ever did speak
                     Dm         C
She is the last true mouthpiece
                     Dm          Am
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
              Dm           G
A fresh poison each week
                   F
'We were born sick,' you heard them say it
Am                       Dm        Am
        My church offers no absolutes
                            Dm        C
She tells me 'worship in the bedroom'
                     Dm      Am
The only heaven I'll be sent to
                Dm        G      
Is when I'm alone with you
                 F
I was born sick, but I love it
F
     Command me to be well
C          F C   F C   Fm C
Aaaaaaaaaaamen. Amen. Amen


  C-B-B-Bb       Am
       Take me to church, I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
E                                                           C
       I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
             Dm
Offer me that deathless death
    Am                            D-C-C-B             
Good God, let me give you my life                [Chorus](2x)


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


B-Bb       Am
Take me to church, I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
E                                                          C
      I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
             Dm
Offer me that deathless death
    Am                      D-C-C-B             
Good God, let me give you my life                [Chorus](2x)


 [Bridge]

F                 C              E        Am
     No masters or kings when the ritual begins
        F          C              E          Am
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
   F               C           E          Am
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
     F        C         E         Am
Only then I am human, only then I am clean.
C          F C   F C   Fm C
Aaaaaaaaaaamen. Amen. Amen


C-B-B-Bb      Am
     Take me to church, I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
E                                                          C
       I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
             Dm
Offer me that deathless death
    Am                            D-C-C-B            
Good God, let me give you my life                [Chorus](2x)
