Rufus Wainwright's version of this song is in the key of C, but Brandi plays it in G and tweaks the verse and chorus just a bit. This is not on her album, but she plays it live at some shows. Guitarists should toy around to see which D chord works best for the song. I'm using something close to Dsus on my banjo. intro: |G Em|G Em| 1st: G Em Iíve heard that thereís a secret chord G Em That David played and it pleased the Lord C C G G But you donít really care for music do you?
