This is a great and simple song, please remember to rate, thanks!

[Intro]
 Em    Em    Em    Em

[Verse]
Em                                       
If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game
                                 G            Am
If you are the healer, it means I'm broken and lame
Em
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
                        G            Am
You want it darker
                   Em                G     Am
We kill the flame
Em                G     Am
[Pre-Chorus]
Em
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
                        G             Am
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
Em
A million candles burning for the help that never came
                       G             Am
You want it darker

[Chorus]
C   G    D
OOO      Hineni, hineni
                  Em          G     Am
I'm ready, my lord

Em          G     Am

[Verse]
Em
There's a lover in the story
Em        
But the story's still the same
Em
There's a lullaby for suffering
       G               Am
And a paradox to blame
Em
But it's written in the scriptures

And it's not some idle claim
                   G  Am
You want it darker
                  Em      G     Am
We kill the flame

Em                G     Am

[Verse]
Em
They're lining up the prisoners
Em
And the guards are taking aim
Em
I struggled with some demons
           G              Am
They were middle class and tame
Em
I didn't know I had permission to murder and to maim
                       G            Am
You want it darker

[Chorus]
C   G    D
OOO      Hineni, hineni
                Em           G         Am
I'm ready, my lord
Em                G     Am
Em                G     Am
Em                G     Am

[Post-Chorus]
Em
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
                        G             Am
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
Em
A million candles burning for the love that never came
                       G           Am
You want it darker
                 Em    G           Am
We kill the flame
Em                G     Am

[Verse]
Em                                       
If you are the dealer, let me out of the game
                                 G            Am
If you are the healer, I'm broken and lame
Em
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
                        G            Am
You want it darker

[Chorus]
C   G    D
OOO      Hineni, hineni
C   G    D
OOO      Hineni, hineni
               Em          G         Am
I'm ready, my lord
Em                G     Am
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo 
Em                G     Am
ah hi ne ni hi nen i
Em                G     Am
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo 
Em                G     Am

Just heard of LC's death; local FM played this tune and I played along with this version. One of his last releases - felt good to have had the chance to play along with the master, even only over the 'net.

@Babio I had the same experience. I came looking for The Stranger Song, which I picked up and then played along with this. Adding to my repertoire. Thanks-will follow with a couple of suggestions to tighten this tab.
