[VERSE 1]

G#m                
It's not what I had planned when I was walking in
                   B   C#m   
I didn't know what I'd see
G#m
Stepping through the door, their clothes were on the floor
                     B   C#m
Was something like a bad dream
G#m
And then in just a blink, before I could think
                   B  C#m
I didn't know what happened
G#m
All I knew was this
                                        B  C#m
How could he commit a crime against our passion

[PRE-CHORUS]

G#m        F#                     E
Ooh... the moment that I saw them kiss
G#m      F#                      E
Ooh... I knew it had to end like this

[CHORUS]

G#m       F#
Preacher, take me down
E                   C#m    E
Take me down to the river, river
G#m        F# 
I couldn't help myself
E              C#m       E
When I saw him with her, with her
G#m         F#
I took that loaded gun
    E               C#m E
Forgive what I have done
   G#m       F#  
So preacher, take me down
E                   C#m    E
Take me down to the river, river

[VERSE 2]

G#m
The writing's on the wall, but it was his fault
                  B     C#m 
How could anybody blame me
G#m
I swear to tell the truth, and if you only knew
                     B    C#m 
I swear you'd do the same thing

[PRE-CHORUS]

G#m      F#                    E
Ooh... if you give me one more chance
G#m         F#                     E
Ooh... I'll never shoot him down again

[CHORUS]

G#m       F#
Preacher, take me down
E                   C#m    E
Take me down to the river, river
G#m        F# 
I couldn't help myself
E              C#m       E
When I saw him with her, with her
G#m         F#
I took that loaded gun
    E               C#m E
Forgive what I have done
   G#m       F#  
So preacher, take me down
E                   C#m    E
Take me down to the river, river

[BREAKDOWN]

G#m B C#m E F#
          Take me down
G#m B C#m E F#
          Take me down
G#m B C#m E F#
          Take me down
G#m B C#m E      F#
          River, river
G#m B C#m E F#
          Take me down

[CHORUS]

G#m       F#
Preacher, take me down
E                   C#m    E
Take me down to the river, river
G#m        F# 
I couldn't help myself
E              C#m       E
When I saw him with her, with her
G#m         F#
I took that loaded gun
    E               C#m E
Forgive what I have done
   G#m       F#  
So preacher, take me down
E                   C#m    E
Take me down to the river, river

Love this!! An easier way to play it is to transpose it down 4, put a capo on 4 and play Em G Am C and D :)
