Forgiven - Alanis Morissette

Acoustic version from Jagged Little Pill
For reference, see: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbWa-dAkQDg)

Please note that this is my interpretation of the song! I may not be
playing the exact same chords as on the record, but at least you won't get
booed off stage if you use them. (At least it won't be my fault if it happens!)
I tried my best, but I'm not certain about the accuracy
of the lyrics.

Here are some chord grips for some of the more unusual chords
(the numbers above some of them are recommended fretting fingers):

           1 4 2
Aadd9: X-0-2-4-2-(0)
     t   1 3 2
F#7: 2-x-2-3-2-(0)

Bmaj9(no 3rd): 0-2-4-4-4-0 or: X-x-2-4-4-0

Caug: X-3-2-1-1-x


If the chord grips for the Aadd9 and F#7 chords in the intro are too difficult to fret,
alternatively you could play both using a regular E major-shaped bar chord and just lift
your bar finger to let the open e and B strings ring out.


----------------------------------------------------------------


Intro (00:00)

Aadd9    F#7
Aadd9    F#7

Verse (00:13)

Aadd9                        F#7                        Aadd9     F#7
      You know how us Catholic girls can be. 
Aadd9                       F#7                     Bmaj9(no 3rd)
      We make up for so much time a little too late. 


  E       Caug        C#m          E7
I never forgot it, confusing as it was: 
      F#7              Am
no fun with no guilt feelings 
    E           Caug          C#m      E7
The sinners, the saviors, the loveless priests 
     F#7          Am
I'll see you next Sunday 


Chorus (1:04)

D                  C#              D
    We all had our reasons to be there, 
             C#              D
we all had a thing or two to learn, 
              C#                 Bsus4  B
we all needed something to cling to, 
        C#sus4   C#
so we did. 


Verse (1:30)

Aadd9           F#7           Aadd9   
     I sang Alleluia in the choir, 
          F#7
      (Allelu-allelu-allelu-ya-ah)
Aadd9              F#7                 Bmaj9(no 3rd)
    I confessed my darkest deeds to an envious man. 

       E         Caug       C#m                  E7
My brothers, they never went blind for what they did, 
      F#7    Am
but I may as well have
          E       Caug          C#m            E7
in the name of the Father, the Skeptic and the Son. 
   F#7           Am
I have one more      stupid question, yeah


Chorus (2:21)

D                 C#              D
   We all had our reasons to be there, 
             C#              D
we all had a thing or two to learn, 
                C#               Bsus4  B
we all needed something to cling to, 
          C#sus4  C
so we did. 


Bridge (2:46)

D                       E                     D
   What I learned I rejected, but I believe again. 
                       C#
I will suffer the consequence of his inquisition. 
D                        E                   F#sus4  F#   F#sus4  F
     If I jump in this fountain, will I be forgiven? 


Chorus (3:12) (single stroke on each)

D                   C#              D
   We all had our reasons to be there, 
             C#              D
we all had a thing or two to learn, 
              C#                  Bsus4  B
we all needed something to cling to, 
       C#sus4  C
so we did. 


Chorus (3:38)

D                  C#            D
    We all had delusions in our heads, 
                C#               D
we all had our minds made up for us, 
             C#           Bsus4  B
we had to believe in something, 
         C#sus4   B
so we did. 


Chorus (4:03) (Instrumental, ad-lib vocals)


(4:29)
Dmaj7 (let ring)
Alleluia
