From: Daniel Longmire (yu176199@yorku.ca)

O.K., this should settle for once and for all the majority

Bm:X24432
Em:022000

Verse:

D   A   G6 (slide) A*
D   A   G6
D   A   G6 (slide) A*

A   B   C#   D (like everyone else, I haven't figured out the riff yet).
A   G6

A   B   C#   D
A   G6

A   B   C#   D
A (hold)

Bridge:

I think it's:

Ends on Em.

D       A          G    A
I can't say that I love Jesus
