Intro:
Am   D6/9/A    B11/A  D6/9/A      x2

   Am                          D6/9/A             B11/A         D6/9/A         
I kissed you cause I've never been an angel
   Am                   D6/9/A              B11/A             D6/9/A
I learned to say hosannas on my knees
              Am                                           D7/F#
But they threw me out of Sunday school when I was nine
              Am               E                 Am
And the sisters said I did just as I pleased
Even so I try to be a good girl
It's only what I want that makes me weak
I had no desire to be a child of sin
Then you went and pressed your whiskers to my cheek

A
Fa la la la
G

F
Now let me go, my honey oh
C                    G
Back to Tennessee
A
It's beef steak when I'm working
G
Whiskey when I'm dry
C                   G         A
Sweet heaven when I die

Am   D6/9/A    B11/A  D6/9/A

        Am         D6/9/A               B11/A          D6/9/A
Now I've tried drinking rye and gamblin'
Am                 D6/9/A        B11/A      D6/9/A
Dancing with damnation is a ball
          Am                                   D7/F#
But of all the little ways I've found to hurt myself
        Am                      E                      Am
Well you might be my favorite one of all

Sweet heaven when I die


        Am             D6/9/A         B11/A       D6/9/A
Why can't I go and live the life rightly?
         Am                D6/9/A         B11/A       D6/9/A
Why can't I go back home to apple pie?
                     Am                                  D7/F#
Cause your affront to my virtue was a touch too much
              Am           E                    Am
But you left a little twinkle in my eye

Now some will come confessing of transgressions
Am                      D6/9/A              B11/A       D6/9/A
Some will come confessing of their love
Am                                                 D7/F#  
You were there strumming on your gay guitar
                 Am                     E                              Am
You were trying to tell me something with your thumb

End on A

Nice - slightly different from how I figured it out, and I think you may be right on the B11/A (it sounds really nice compared to the C that I was playing). However I very much think that it is C on "beef steak" and not A. And also:

F G A
Sweet heaven when I die

Cheers!
Alden

I think the chords are close enough, maybe not 100% accurate, but I'm able to work out the song. Lovely song! Oh, and hi Alden! Kelsey

I forgot to log in when I submitted this, but YES! to AldenGriffith, I suppose I also forgot to double check my chords, cause that's exactly how I /play/ it, I just transcribed incorrectly.
Sorry! Glad it could help regardless.
