Mount Moriah -- "Reckoning" (no idea why UG calls this "THE Reckoning")
From the self-titled record

Heather McEntire plays this in bar-chord form, as such:

G: 5-7-7-6-5-5
C: 12-14-14-13-12-12
C: 10-12-12-11-10-10

But it also works nicely in traditional-chord form, and I find that it is better 
to play it this way if you're playing it with no lead guitar backup because you 
can provide some texture to the D at the end of each line by pulling off and 
hammering on the little e-string (or including a couple of Dsus2 chords with it).  
This, of course, looks like so:

G: x-0-2-2-2-0
C: 0-2-2-1-0-0
C: x-x-0-2-3-2
Csus2: x-x-0-2-3-0
