INFO BY THE TABBER
                  
The chords are pretty straightforward, what's more difficult is capturing
the beat and piano bass. 

Personally, I like to play the first verse through the second chorus (i.e.
until the bridge) in a pretty straight 4/4 strum, with a small crescendo 
throughout. I play the first part of the bridge pretty sparsely (one strum
per chord), but the second part (G   F   Am   G) I pick up the beat again, 
go 8/8 with crescendo, and then culminate in the release on the chorus.

Again, this is a personal choice. In other words, play it as you like.


[Intro]
     
G   C G


[Verse 1]
       
   G
If this is redemption, why do I bother at all?
        Em                  C                  G
There's nothing to mention,    and nothing has changed
C                     D                     Em
   Still I'd rather be working at something,    than praying for the rain
     C               D               G
So I wander on, till someone else is saved


[Verse 2](same chords as Verse 1)
   G    
I moved to the coast, under a mountain
 Em              C             G
Swam in the ocean, slept on my own
C                D            Em
At dawn i would watch the sun, cut ribbons through the bay
C               D                       G
I'd remember all, the things my mother wrote


[Chorus]
      
              Em             C               G
That we don't eat until your father's at the table
             Em              C                 G
And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
          Em           C                 G  D/F# Em
And never once has any man I've met been    able to love
   C                  D               G         G4 G
So if I were you, I'd   have a little trust


[Verse 3]
G       
Two thousand years, I've been in that water
Em                C            G
Two thousand years, sunk like a stone
C            D                       Em
Desperately reaching for nets that the fishermen have thrown
C             D                G
Trying to find a little bit of hope


[Verse 4]
G       
Me, I was holding, all of my secrets soft and hid
Em               C                         G
Pages were folded; then there was nothing at all
C             D            Em
So if in the future I might, need myself a savior
C                 D                    G
I'll remember what was written on that wall


[Chorus]
      
              Em             C               G
That we don't eat until your father's at the table
             Em              C                 G
And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
          Em           C                 G  D/F# Em
And never once has any man I've met been    able to love
   C                  D               G         G4 G
So if I were you, I'd   have a little trust


[Bridge]
      
Dm                         Em
    Am I an honest man and true?
                           Dm
Have I been good to you at all?
                                 Am
Oh I'm so tired of playing these games

We'd just be running down 
    G 
The same old lines, the same old stories of
F
   Breathless trains and, worn down glories
Am
   Houses burning, worlds that turn
G
   On their own


[Chorus]
      
              Em             C               G
That we don't eat until your father's at the table
             Em              C                 G
And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
          Em           C                 G  D/F# Em
And never once has any man I've met been    able to love
      C
So if I were you my friend
D                                      G
   Learn to have just a little bit of trust.
