Em Am
My lover’s got humour
Em Am
She’s the giggle at a funeral
G Am
Knows everybody’s disapproval
Em Am
I should’ve worshipped her sooner
Em Am
If the heavens ever did speak
Em Am
She is the last true mouthpiece
G Am
Every sunday’s getting more bleak
Em Am
A fresh poison each week
D9
We were born sick
C
You heard them say it
Em Am
My church offers no absolutes
Em Am
She tells me, worship in the bedroom
G Am
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Em Am
Is when I’m alone with you
D9 C
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
G
C G Cm G Cm G
Amen, a_men, a__men, a__men

Chorus:
Em
Take me to church

I’ll worship like a dog
B
At the shrine of your lies

I’ll tell you my sins
G
So you can sharpen your knife
Am
Offer me that deathless death
Em
Good God, let me give you my life
Em
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog
B
At the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins
G
So you can sharpen your knife
Am
Offer me that deathless death
Em
Good God, let me give you my life

2nd Verse:
Em Am
If I’m a pagan of the good times
Em Am
My lover’s the sunlight
G Am
To keep the goddess on my side
Em Am
She demands a sacrifice
D9
To drain the whole sea
C
Get something shiny
Em Am
Something meaty for the main course
Em Am
That’s a fine looking high horse
G Am
What you got in the stable?
Em Am
We’ve a lot of starving faithful
D9
That looks tasty
C
That looks plenty
(passagem 1)
This is hungry work

Chorus:
Em
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog
B
At the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins
G
So you can sharpen your knife
Am
Offer me that deathless death
Em
Good God, let me give you my life
Em
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog
B
At the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins
G
So you can sharpen your knife
Am
Offer me that deathless death
Em
Good God, let me give you my life
C G
No masters or kings
B7/F# Em/G
When the ritual begins
C G
There is no sweeter innocence
B7/F# Em/G
Than our gentle sin
C G
In the madness and soil
B7/F# Em/G
Of that sad earthly scene
C G
Only then I am human
B7/F# Em Em/D C7M C
Only then I am clean
G C G Cm G Cm G
A_men, a__men, a__men
coro:
Em
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog
B
At the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins
G
So you can sharpen your knife
Am
Offer me that deathless death
Em
Good God, let me give you my life
Em
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog
B
At the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins
G
So you can sharpen your knife
Am
Offer me that deathless death
Em
Good God, let me give you my life
Em
