Messengers by Jared & The Mill

Standard Tuning
Capo on the 5th fret

This first verse is sung without accompaniment:

Tell her I'm lost,
but that's alright,
'cause after twenty-something years, I can barely walk the line.
Only messengers can tell her
how I'm missing her tonight.

Much of the song is played with a fancy finger picking rhythm, but these are the chords used.


[Intro]

G - C - G


[Verse 1]

G                
If you're looking for her,

she's right down the road.
           Cadd9
She'll be sitting on a swing in the sun
                         G
making stones turn into gold.
         D                        Cadd9
Let her know that the family she knew
                      G
keeps her locket and keys.
          D
Tell her everything is fine
           Cadd9                          G
and she's missed like the winds miss the trees.


[Verse 2]

G
And if you're searching for her,

she's out shedding light.
          Cadd9
She's the one you can't miss
                                          G
'cause her smile makes the sun seem less bright.
            D
But if you find her, be still
          Cadd9                            G
tell her everything about the time you've killed.
         D                           Cadd9
Let her know that the bad times will pass
                     G
and I miss her like hell.


[Chorus]

Cadd9         G
Tell her I'm lost,
              D
but that's alright,
              Emi              D           Cadd9            G
'cause after twenty-something years, I can barely walk the line.
      Emi            D                Cadd9       G
Only messengers can tell her how I'm missing her tonight.


[Verse 3]

G
If you're searching for worth,

you'll find it with her,
           Cadd9
but she'll ask for your trust
                                     G
'cause it's hard being shown how to learn.
            D                          Cadd9
So let her know that the stars haven't moved;
                         G
God, I hope they're the same.
          D
Tell her life could be worse,
         Cadd9                 G
and I'm trying my best now to change.


[Chorus]

Cadd9         G
Tell her I'm lost,
             D
but that's alright,
               Emi             D            Cadd9           G
'cause after twenty-something years, I can barely walk the line.
      Emi            D                Cadd9       G
Only messengers can tell her how I'm missing her tonight.


[Verse 3]

G
But if it's after the dawn,

be sure you're alone,
                 Cadd9                                                 G
'cause she's the kind best enjoyed like a pool under cottonwoods and stones.
             D
So let her laugh wash you clean,
         Cadd9                        G 
like the rains on the tilted window panes.
            D
Give her everything and more,
           Cadd9                    G
and she'll give you the world in exchange.


[Chorus]

Cadd9         G
Tell her I'm lost,
              D
but that's alright,
               Emi              D          Cadd9            G
'cause after twenty-something years, I can barely walk the line.
        Emi          D                Cadd9        G
Only messengers can tell her how I'm missing her tonight.


[Bridge]

              Emi
And tell her everything is good,
      Cadd9                    G       D
but I miss how her eyes would take me home.
              Emi         
And tell her life is getting faster
      Cadd9                        G       D
and I miss the way she'd make you move so slow.
             Emi
And tell her how I'm still alive
          Cadd9                         G
and how I wish I was something I could boast.
           Emi
'Cause I'm up in the sky now
        Cadd9                          G
and the stars have never seemed this close.


[Chorus]

Cadd9         G
Tell her I'm lost,
              D
but that's alright,
               Emi              D           Cadd9           G
'cause after twenty-something years, I can barely walk the line.
        Emi          D                Cadd9        G
Only messengers can tell her how I'm missing her tonight.


[Outro]

G
So if you're searching for love,

she's right down the road.
           Cadd9
She'll be sitting on a swing in the sun
                       G
making stones turn to gold.

Thanks so much I managed to figure out majority but the chorus was a bit tricky. This helps a lot. Perfect
