The Messenger by Daniel Lanois

Intro: Am  Em  F  G  Am  C  F


Am      Em                  F     G
        Got a letter from a messenger
Am      C       F
I read it when it came
Am      Em              F       G        
        It said that you were wanted
Am             C                          F
        You were bound and chained

C                                 F
        You had loved and you were handled
C                                          G
        You were poisoned you were pained
                Am      F         G                         C
Oh no, Oh no you were naked you were shamed

Am              Em             F             G
        You could almost touch heaven
Am         C                          F
        Right there in front of you
Am       Em              F                G      
        Liberty just slipped away from us
Am                 C                            F
        Now there's so much work to do

C                            F
        Oh the door that closes tightly
C                                   G
        Is the door that can't swing wide
               Am           F   G               C
        Oh no, Oh no but expecting to collide


C                            F
        For a minute I let my guard down
                                    C
        Not afraid to be found out
                           F
        Completely forgotten

                                                C
        What our fears were all about
                Am      F               G                             C
        Oh no, Oh no there's no need to be without

Am              Em              F       G
        There's a chance and I will take it
Am         C                F
        This desire I can't give
Am             Em                                   F   G       
        Take my heart please don't break it
Am          C                          F
        I will crawl to your foothill

C                            F
        I'm frightened but I'm coming
C                            G
        Please baby please lay still
 
                Am      F       G             C
 
        Oh no, oh no not coming for the kill
        Oh no, oh no not coming for the kill
        Oh no, oh no not coming for the kill
