The other version sounds fine, except that it's a half-step low throughout the entire 
 I found that when I moved a half-step up and switched from minor to major chords (e.g. 
G#m with A, replaced C#m with D, etc.) then the chords sounded right.

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

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

   A        C      D
By claiming God as his only right
     A          C        D
He's stealing a god from the Israelite
A          C                    D
Stealing a god from the Muslim, too
A             C       D
There is only one god through and through

A        F        E
A           F             E
Seven lies, multiplied by seven,
A          F        E
Multiplied by seven again
A                 F     E
Seven angels with seven trumpets
          A           F       E
Send them home on the morning train

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