Thanks to "gweetster" for posting "weeds in the wheat" or i might never have 
gotten around to this.
This is the same song with a few corrections here and there to the chords and 
chord placement. I've also included the intro... enjoy.

Keep in mind all chords are in barre form in this song. Like gweetster, i have 
included the fret locations where they may be needed.

Bless This Mess

Intro
A# - A#7     G#/G

G                G7                    F
God bless the man who stumbles
G                G7                    F
God bless the man who falls
C(8th fret)  C7                  F              G                 G7       F
God bless the man who yields to temptation

God bless the woman who suffers
God bless the woman who weeps
God bless the children trying her patience

 
  Bb(6th fret)       G#             F#
Trouble getting over it is what you’re in for
      G#
So pour yourself another
 Bb(6th fret)            G#                   Eb(11th fret)    C#(9th fret) C/C#
‘Cause it’ll take a steady pair of hands

Holy or unholy ghost
Well now I can’t tell
But either way you cut it
You should get some distance if you plan
To take a stand

G                G7                 F
God bless the house divided
G                G7                        F
God bless the weed in the wheat
C(8th fret) C7                F             G       G7          G    Bm
God bless the lamp lit under a bushel


Em(7th fret)  A                       Dm                  G
I discovered hell to be the poison in the well
       Cm                         F                        G7    G              
So I tried to warn the others of the curse
Em(7th fret)            A       
But then my body turned on me
   Dm                      G                  Cm                    F
I dreamt that for eternity my family would burn
              Bb                     D
Then I awoke, with a wicked thirst

Verse Chords with woah woahs

Bb                     G#                  F#
By my baby’s yellow bed I kissed her forehead
          G#
And rubbed her little tummy
Bb                              G#                           Eb(11th fret)
Wondering if she’d soon despise the smell
                        C#                      C#/C     Bb
Of the booze on my breath, like her mom
                                     G#                    F#                     G#
Through a darkened mirror I have seen my own reflection
            Bb                             G#
And it makes me want to be a better man
D#(11th fret)  D(10th fret)
After another drink

God bless the man at the crossroads
God bless the woman who still can’t sleep
God bless the history that doesn’t repeat
