[Verse 1]

E                Emaj7
'Twas in another life time,
Esus4           E
One of toil and blood.
                     Emaj7
When blackness was a virtue
         Esus4
And the road was full of mud.
       E          Emaj7
I came in from the wilderness,
    Esus4
A creature void of form.
      E
"Come in" she said,
      Emaj7
"I'll give you,
Esus4            E
Shelter from the storm."

Emaj7  Esus4  E

[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

And if I pass this way again,
You can rest assured,
I'll always do my best for her
On that I give my word.
In a world of steel eyed death and men
Who are fighting to be warm,
Come in she said,
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm.

[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

Not a word was spoke between us.
There was little risk involved.
everything up to that point,
Had been left unresolved.
Try imagining a place
Where it's always safe and warm
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm.

[Verse 4]
(same as verse 1)

I was burned out from exhaustion
I was buried in the hail.
Poisoned in the bushes
An' blown out on the trail
Hunted like a crocodile,
Ravaged in the corn
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm

[Verse 5]
(same as verse 1)

Suddenly I turned around
And she was standing there
With silver bracelets on her wrists
And flowers in her hair.
She walked up to me so gracefully
And took my crown of thorns
Come in she said
I'll give you,
Shelter from the storm.

[Verse 6]
(same as verse 1)

Now there's a wall between us
Something has been lost.
I took too much for granted
I got my signals crossed
Just to think that all began
On an uneventfull morn
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm

[Verse 7]
(same as verse 1)

Well the deputy walks on hard nails
And the preacher rides a mount
But nothing really matters
It's doom alone that counts
And the one-eyed undertaker
He blows a futile horn
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm

[Verse 8]
(same as verse 1)

I've heard newborn babies wailin'
Like a mornin' dove
And old men with broken teeth
Stranded without love.
Do I understand your question, man
Is it hopeless and forlorn.
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm.

[Verse 9]
(same as verse 1)

In a little hill top village
I gambled for my clothes
I bargained for salvation
And they gave me a leathal dose.
I offered up my innocence
And got repaid with scorn
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm

[Verse 10]
(same as verse 1)

Well I'm livin' in a foreign country
But I'm bound to cross the line.
Beauty walk a razors edge,
Someday I'll make it mine.
If I could only turn the clock back
To when God and her were born
Come in she said
I'll give you
Shelter from the storm.

This is a brilliant version of the song. The chords have a lot of depth, fantastic on a guitar with a light and brilliant sound. A 12 string would be unbelievable!

Nice job :)

I agree, this song plays really nice this way.

The A11 you propose has a nice voicing, but the easier way, and how it sounds on recording, is all strings open.
