The notes in brackets are just notes, not chords.  The G chord 
before [F#-F-E D-E-D] is played very briefly before the notes come in.
It probably doesn't really matter if you play the G at all, but I think it's there.
I think this sounds best with the recording if you barre G and Cm, and mute the E
string in the Cm, if you're playing guitar, that is...


intro riff [D-F-D G G]x4 then [D-F-D]

G                        Cm
Morning prayers took the girl unawares
        F                      C
She was late for class and she knew it
    G                 Cm
The broadcaster had a voice that was soothing
    F                   C                  
She couldn’t tell if it was a man or wo-man
A              C                    G [F#-F-E D-E-D]
    A patch of sun fell onto her neck
A               C                          G [F#-F-E D-E-D]  
    She put her head on her arms on her desk

    G                Cm
The lesson today was Acts of Apostles
    F                      C
The crazy hippies, they’re running scared
    G                 Cm
She shut her eyes and imagined the desert
   F                      C
No cars, no mobiles, just sun and bread
A                  C                         G [F#-F-E D-E-D]
    What would she look like standing by the well?
A               C                     G [F#-F-E D-E-D]  
    More like a women and less like a girl

Bb                   Eb          
“Oh, if I could make sense of it all!
  Bb                                       Eb
I wish that I could sing.  I’d stay in a melody
                                      Bb
I would float along in my everlasting song
                   Am [C-B C-B] D
What would I do to believe?”

intro notes again: [D-F-D G G]x4 then [D-F-D]

G                  Cm
Later on she plays Morning Has Broken
    F                        C
She knows she’s bad.  She is slowing everbody down
    G            Cm
The choirmaster, usually a bastard,
          F                        C
knows her mother’s sick.  He’ll be nice to her.
A                            C                    G [F#-F-E D-E-D]  
    She thinks that she shouldn’t be there at all
A                         C                       G [F#-F-E D-E-D]  
    Her worries make everything else seem trivial

Bb                   Eb          
“Oh, if I could make sense of it all!
  Bb                                       Eb
I wish that I could sing.  I’d stay in a melody
                                      Bb
I would float along in my everlasting song
                   Am [C-B C-B]  D 
What would I do to believe?”

Repeat A few more times: Am [C-B C-B]  D
