Intro:  E   Asus2   E   Asus2

     E                              Asus2
King Saul fell on his sword when it all went wrong,
     E                                  B
and Joseph’s brothers sold him down the river for a song,
     E                              Asus2
and Sonny Liston rubbed some tiger balm into his glove.
      C#m                          Asus2                           E
some things you do for money and some you do for love, love, love.

(E)  Asus2   E   Asus2

   E                           Asus2
Raskolnikov felt sick but he couldn't say why
         E                             B
when he saw his face reflected in his victim's twinkling eye.
      E                              Asus2
some things you'll do for money and some you'll do for fun,
        C#m                                  Asus2                B      E
but the things you do for love are going to come back to you one by one.

(E) Asus2

(Asus2)                                     E
Love, love is going to lead you by the hand
Asus2                                 E
     into a white and soundless place.
Asus2                      C#m              E
     now we see things as in a mirror dimly.
Asus2                                 B   
     then we shall see each other face to face.
    E                         Asus2
and way out in Seattle young Kurt Cobain
 E                                 B
snuck out to the greenhouse, put a bullet in his brain.
 E                                    Asus2
snakes in the grass beneath our feet, rain in the clouds above,  
      C#m                       Asus2                               E
some moments last forever, but some flare up with love, love, love.

(E)  Asus2   E   Asus2
 E   Asus2   E   Asus2

Watching John D. play this song live (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2B7FPbdVTI) he plays the C#m not as a bar chord on the 4th fret, but rather using this style:


I can't tell if he's playing the B and high E strings as well in the video. If you play it with 5 strings (ringing the B and high E strings as open) then it's a C#m7, but it still sounds good.

Playing the C#m as a bar chord is OK, but it's much higher than what John plays in this song.
