John Mark McMillan
Ten Thousand 
From "The Medicine"

While some of the submitted chords are correct that this is in E, that's 
not the best way to play it. The way to get the hammer on's is capo 4 in 
the C position. It sounds better and is much more playable.

Capo 4
Intro x2
C//-/// G// C//-///-///-/// Am7// G// C// F//-///-///-///  

Verse 1
C                            G            C       
Ten thousand glimmering like coals in our chest
Am7               G            C        F
Our ball bearings drawn to the magnetic breath
    C                        G               C       
Of ten thousand weeping with wings on their tears
       Am7          G          C            F
Amidst ten thousand voices for ten thousand years
     C                          G              C       
For ten thousand graves yawning unlocked and unlatched
    Am7          G          C               F
Now ten thousand holes with rocks on their backs
     C                          G          C       
Ten thousand tombs gaping wide singing the praises
   Am7          G        C           F
Of ten thousand bodies unlaced and unlaid

Pre - Chorus
       G                     Am7           F
As the ten thousand highways unfold their doors
        G                        Am7        F
For the ten thousand standing on Nineveh's shores
          C                   G       C             
Where the blood of a husband silences wars
         F       G        C
For the girl who rises to meet Him, and she sings

World, I have overcome you
World, I have overcome you
World, I have overcome
      F                       G
By my song and the blood of a son

Verse 2
Ten thousand rivers run red like my veins
Where the bones of men hum like a rattling cage
For sinew to cling to for wind to remain
In ten thousand lungs for ten thousand days
Breathing like a choir of holes in the ground
Where the cynical have lain, where the cynical go down
Save the gravity of time lets go of her drowned
Like ten thousand sparrows unlocked and unwound

Pre Chorus
Chorus x2
