Depeche Mode – John The Revelator

Here’s how I play this song on guitar/acoustic. Really simple rhythm, it just repeats. 
leave good rating. Thanks!

G#m                        Bm       C#m
John the Revelator put him in an elevator
         G#m               Bm   C#m
Take him up to the highest high
         G#m                     Bm        C#m
Take him up to the top where the mountains stop
G#m                        Bm   C#m
Let him tell his book of lies

G#m                       Bm        C#m
John the Revelator he’s a smooth operator
     G#m                      Bm   C#m
It’s time we cut him down to size
G#m                      Bm             C#m
Take him by the hand and put him on the stand
G#m                Bm  C#m
Let us hear his alibis

   G#m                 Bm    C#m
By claiming God as his only right
     G#m                     Bm   C#m
He's stealing a god from the Israelites
G#m                   Bm       C#m
Stealing a god from a Muslim, too
G#m                   Bm          C#m
There is only one god through and through

  G#m             E      D#
E|--------------------------------|
B|-x--x-x-x--x-x--x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|

G#m              E        D#          G#m              E   D#
Seven lies, multiplied by seven, multiplied by seven again
G#m               E     D#
Seven angels with seven trumpets
          G#m                 E     D#
Send them home on the morning train

     G#m                  E             D#
Well who’s that shouting?  John the Revelator!
G#m                     E   D#
All he ever gives us is pain
     G#m                  E             D#
Well who’s that shouting?  John the Revelator!
G#m                       E     D#
He should bow his head in shame
