Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – The Boatmans Call chords

Here's another chord compilations of one of the most depressing albums I've ever heard. 
a pretty spare, acoustic/piano album so I figured it'd be cool to collect the chords to 
in one place. Here it goes!

All transcription credit goes to Alon Drori, Boaz, Moho, Leo McPartland, Peter 
and ondrej.

Into my arms And I don't believe in the existence of angels But looking at you I wonder if that's true But if I did I would summon them together And ask them to watch over you To each burn a candle for you To make bright and clear your path And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love And guide you into my arms Into my arms, O Lord Into my arms, O Lord Into my arms, O Lord Into my arms And I believe in Love And I know that you do too And I believe in some kind of path That we can walk down, me and you So keep your candles burning And make her journey bright and pure That she will keep returning Always and evermore Into my arms, O Lord Into my arms, O Lord Into my arms, O Lord Into my arms 2.
