The notes in parenthesis are just notes, not chords.  
The G chord before (f#-f-e d-e-d) is played very briefly before the notes come in.
It probably doesn't really matter if you play the G at all, but I think it's there.
I think this sounds best with the recording if you barre G and Cm, and mute the E
string in the Cm, if you're playing guitar, that is...


intro riff is (d-f-d  g g  d-f-d)

G                        Cm
Morning prayers took the girl unawares
        F                      C
She was late for class and she knew it
    G                 Cm
The broadcaster had a voice that was soothing
    F                   C                  
She couldn’t tell if it was a man or wo-man
A              C                    G  (f#-f-e d-e-d)
A patch of sun fell onto her neckA C G (f#-f-e d-e-d) She put her head on her arms on her desk
G Cm The lesson today was Acts of Apostles F C The crazy hippies, they’re running scared G Cm She shut her eyes and imagined the desert F C No cars, no mobiles, just sun and bread A C G (f#-f-e d-e-d)
What would she look like standing by the well?A C G (f#-f-e d-e-d) More like a women and less like a girl
Bb Eb “Oh, if I could make sense of it all! Bb Eb I wish that I could sing. I’d stay in a melody Bb I would float along in my everlasting song Am (c-b c-b) D What would I do to believe?” intro notes again: d-f-d g g d-f-d G Cm Later on she plays Morning Has Broken F C She knows she’s bad. She is slowing everbody down G Cm The choirmaster, usually a bastard, F C knows her mother’s sick. He’ll be nice to her. A C G (f#-f-e d-e-d)
She thinks that she shouldn’t be there at allA C G (f#-f-e d-e-d) Her worries make everything else seem trivial
Bb Eb “Oh, if I could make sense of it all! Bb Eb I wish that I could sing. I’d stay in a melody Bb I would float along in my everlasting song Am (c-b c-b) D What would I do to believe?” Repeat a few more times: Am (c-b c-b) D
