d/-------2----------2---2-1-----2----------------------------/

E/-----------------------------------------------------------/


go from holding the last note of the intro straight into the song:


E      B9        A9
18 bulletholes in the body of a priest. they say he was eating a hot dog 
      B9                E
when the ammunition was released.  they say he was always fat and lazy
       B9             A9   
but he was an awfully nice guy. that's just one more death to show you
       B9                 C#m
you never know when you're gonna die. you might be facing the beast.
E                 B9            A9
sometimes, God, i feel like i'm living in a bone grinding mill, and
every time 
         B9                  E
i hear the sound i can barely stand still. it's a thing i can't quite
make out 
         B9                A9
sometimes but it seems to be getting louder--one more body from the
valley of the dry bones
     B9              C#m(strum down a few times)   B9(strum down about 3 times)
getting ground up into powder against Your holy will.



chorus: E   B9      A9       C#9     B9        A9
    oh, God, it hurts so bad to love anybody down here.
        E         B9   A9
    why don't You come and help me out?
    C#9          B9   A9
    cause i can't even see clear.


the funny thing about the way a girl gets destroyed, about the way
that deal goes down, is that everybody sees it coming at the sister
from all the way across town.  and she isn't always blinded, she isn't
always far astray.  she just might not be thinking.  she might be having
a bad day. but when you choose, you choose, and when you drown, you
drown...(chorus)


bridge: (this goes right along with the intro part)
E                 E7
last night i dreamed that You swallowed me into Yourself and i was
floating on the sea inside.
C#9               B9                     A9
when i landed on the shore, i saw all these people that i thought had
died. i hadn't seen 
           B9           A9
some of them for ages.  they had left without a single word. and when i
said something to them, 
B9
not a single one of them heard.  


they were all looking right through everything like it wasn't even
there. some were full of anger,
some were full of fear. and then i recognized that something very sad
and very beautiful was happening
right here.  they were all caught outside standing alone in very heavy
rain, and when a raindrop landed 
on my tongue, i didn't need You to explain that these were Your
tears...(chorus, then ending chorus)


ending chorus:
    E   B9     A9       C#9     B9        A9
    oh, God, it hurts so bad to love anybody down here.
    E     B9          A9
    oh, that's right. You know so well.
          C#9       B9       A9
    one thorny crown, three nails and a spear.
          C#9       B9       A9
    one thorny crown, three nails and a spear.


the intro is played again with the chords playing in the background.
listen to the cd to get the idea as far as timing goes.  enjoy, this is
an awesome song.
