Hozier - Take Me To Church chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This a my tab for Hozier's "Take Me to Church". It's my first tab and I know its 
not perfect, but it sounds close enough.
When playing the verses I think it sounds closer if you kinda pick the B and A/E 
(depending on chords) strings while holding the chord shapes.
Anyway its a great song- and enjoy playing it. 

Em             Am  Em
My lover's got humour
                      Am  G
She's the giggle at a fun'ral
                  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                G     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
A-A-amen. A-amen. A-amen
 

[Chorus x2]

G F# F# F        Em
      Take me to church
                                              Bm
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
Good God, let me give you my life


[Bridge G F# F# F Em]

(Repeat for song)
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 x2]
Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life


   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
Only then I am clean

     G    C  G    Cm G
A-A-amen. A-amen. A-amen


[Chorus to end]
Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life


Finish on Em
