John Mark Mcmillan - Ten Thousand chords version 3

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 FOur ball bearings drawn to the magnetic breath
C G C Of ten thousand weeping with wings on their tears
Am7 G C FAmidst ten thousand voices for ten thousand years
C G C For ten thousand graves yawning unlocked and unlatched
Am7 G C FNow ten thousand holes with rocks on their backs
C G C Ten thousand tombs gaping wide singing the praises
Am7 G C FOf ten thousand bodies unlaced and unlaid
Pre - Chorus
G Am7 FAs the ten thousand highways unfold their doors
G Am7 FFor the ten thousand standing on Nineveh's shores
C G C Where the blood of a husband silences wars
F G CFor the girl who rises to meet Him, and she sings
FWorld, I have overcome you
Am7World, I have overcome you
GWorld, I have overcome
F GBy 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 Chad Miller
