Then it becomes fairly simple just playing D instead of A, etc. (see the chord formations). Or you can play it with a capo on 1st fret, which is how I've finally put the chords. [Editor's Comment]
Intro/transitions: (Repeated about 9 times)E--------------------------------------|B------10-10---------------------------|G-------9--9---------------------------|D----7--7--7---------------------------|A-10-----------------------------------|E--------------------------------------| (Note: the above is basically the A chord played on a few strings)
(Note: chords given below generally are played by an organ in background) A D Johnny took a walk with your sister the moon A E Let her pale light in to fill up your room A D You've been living underground, eating from a can A E A You've been running away from what you don't understand (love) Chorus: (the chorus basically just switches back between the A and D chords)
E--------------10-10-|-----------------|B------10-10---10-10-|-----------------|G-------9--9----7--7-|-----------------|D-------7--7---------|-----------------|A--------------------|-----------------|E--------------------|-----------------| (A) (D)
(So, when you see A or D, play the above chord formations, respectively) A D She's slippy, you're sliding down A D She'll be there when you hit the ground A D It's alright...it's alright...it's alright C G She moves in mysterious ways A D It's alright...it's alright...it's alright C G She moves in mysterious ways Johnny take a dive with your sister in the rain Let her talk about the things you can't explain To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal If you want to kiss the sky Better learn how to kneel (...on your knees boy!) She's the wave, she turns the tide She sees the man inside the child It's alright...it's alright...it's alright She moves in mysterious ways (x3) It's alright...it's alright...it's alright Lift my days...light up my nights
