Lyrics:

(Verse)
G                         G/F
Up in the north where the cold winds blow
G/C          G/A#  G
Over the prairie   gold 
          G                            G/F
There's a church bell screaming on the steeple high 
G/C                G/A#  G
Gather ye children of    men 

(Verse end)
     G/C                      G/A#
With one hand on the trigger, one hand on the cross 
G                        G/A#       G/C  G
Jesus and his family are two things he's lost 

(Verse 2)
G                             G/F  
March him to the scaffold and string him up on high 
    G/C                G/A#  G
The call came out from the   crowd 
       G                       G/F
Theres blood in their eyes and blood in their hearts 
         G/C                  G/A#  G
For, the blood turning dry on his   hands 

(Verse end)
     G/C                      G/A#
With one hand on the trigger, one hand on the cross 
G                        G/A#       G/C  G
Jesus and his family are two things he's lost 

(Chorus)
Dsus4/F
Christ oh Lord what have you done 
         Cadd9               G/#A  Cadd9  G
You wont never see heaven or king--dom    come
Dsus4/F
Christ oh Lord what have you done 
         Cadd9               G/#A  Cadd9  G
You wont never see heaven or king--dom    come  


(Verse 3)
G               G/F
Listen to me my wayward flock 
   G/C                      G/#A  G
He cried with a noose round his   neck 
  G                        G/F
I spoke to the lord on the mountain top 
    G/C               G/#A  G
His bidding was all I could do 

(Chorus)
Dsus4/F                    Cadd9        
I spoke to the lord on the mountain top 
    G
His bidding was all I could do 

Dsus4/F 
Christ oh Lord your works been done 
    Cadd9             G/#A  Cadd9  G
Now show me heaven or king--dom    come 
Dsus4/F 
Christ oh Lord your works been done 
    Cadd9             G/#A  Cadd9  G
Now show me heaven or king--dom    come

(Verse end strummed)
G/C                      G/A#
One hand on the trigger, one hand on the cross 
G                        G/A#       G/C  G
Jesus and his family are two things he's lost

Yeah I tabbed it from this video. You want to correct something? In my opinion this tab is accurate

Yeah but it's too shrill (intro + verse).

Don't really understand why.
