Nick Cave Mercy Seat chords

Nick Cave - Mercy Seat I was reading the tabs on this site and came up with this alternative. The verse is Em and Bm but I think the song is the Em bar chord on fret 7 5th string and fret 7 barred accross from the 5th string like this: --7---7--| --8---7--| --9---7--| --9---7--| --7---7--| ---------| This doesn't apply to the verse which I use all bar chords for. The guitar chords in the Nick Cave recording are just strung once and let ring with a whole bunch echoe and droney stuff. Em Bm I began to warm and chill Em Bm To objects and their fields Em Bm A ragged cup, a twisted mop Em Bm The face of Jesus in my soup Em Bm Those sinister dinner deals Em Bm The meal trolley's wicked wheels Em Bm A hooked bone rising from my Em Bm food. All things good or ungood. Em And the mercy seat is waiting Em And I think my head is burning Bm And in a way I'm yearning to be D done with all this measuring of Dm truth, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a F tooth, And anyway I told the C Em truth, And I'm not afraid to die. etc. Look at other chord tabs for full lyrics and song structure. Thanks.
