Take me to church  Hozier

Hey you guys I changed version 3 a bit, don't know if it's better.
Please let me know in the comments what you think of it. Don't be too hard on me, it's my first tab

I based it on this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juTxyGbb5T0#t=64

[Verse]

Dm             Gm    Dm
My lover's got humour
                       Gm     F
She's the giggle at a funeral
                       Gm     Dm
Knows everybody's disapproval
                            Gm    Dm
I should've worshipped her sooner
                     Gm     Dm
If the Heavens ever did speak
                     Gm      F
She is the last true mouth piece
                        Gm      F
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
                Gm    C
A fresh poison each week
                   Bb                      Dm 
'We were born sick, you heard them say it
                      Gm    Dm
My church offers no absolutes
                             Gm    F
She tells me 'worship in the bedroom'
                         G   Dm
The only heaven I'll be sent to
                   G   C
Is when I'm alone with you
               Bb       Bb
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
F      Bb     F       Bb       F    Bb   F  
Aaaaaaaaa    Amen. Amen. Amen


[Chorus] x2
 
              Dm
Take me to church                 
                                               A
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                F
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 Gm
Offer me that deathless death
     Dm                       F    Em
Good God, let me give you my life


[Verse 2] x2

If I'm a pagan of the good times
My lover's the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
To drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That's a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We've a lot of starving faithful
That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work


[Chorus]
 
              Dm
Take me to church                 
                                               A
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                F
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 Gm
Offer me that deathless death
     Dm                       F    Em
Good God, let me give you my life
 

[Bridge]

Bb            F                A           Dm
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
        Bb            F             A           Dm
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
        C            G          B7           EM
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
     Bb          F          
Only then I am human

      A           Dm     C     Bb
Only then I am clean
F      Bb     F       Bb       F    Bb   F
Oh. Amen. Amen. Amen


[Chorus]
 
              Dm
Take me to church                 
                                               A
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                F
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 Gm
Offer me that deathless death
     Dm                       F    Em
Good God, let me give you my life

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. This transcription is in the wrong key and uses wrong chords even in that context. Seeing as it was contributed by a non ug member, No one will take responsibility for correcting it. It should be removed

It's mine. Please note that it's transposed. I would like to correct it, but I can't because I posted it anonymous.
