is a great acoustic version of this song that i based this tab off.

in the Chorus a B or B7 is fine depending if your playing the original or acoustic version



b7 = x2120x in hoziers's version
F# = 244xxx

enjoy and rate if its helped you!!

Em             Am    Em
My lover's got humour
                       Am     G
She's the giggle at a funeral
                       Am     Em
Knows everybody's disapproval
                            Am    Em
I should've worshipped her sooner
                     Am     Em
If the Heavens ever did speak
                     Am      G
She is the last true mouth piece
                        Am      Em
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
                Am    D
A fresh poison each week
                   C                      Em 
'We were born sick, you heard them say it
                      Am    Em
My church offers no absolutes
                             Am    G
She tells me 'worship in the bedroom'
                         Am   Em
The only heaven I'll be sent to
                   Am   D
Is when I'm alone with you
               C
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
G      C     G       C    G      Cm G   G/F#, F# F
Aaaaaaaaa    aaaaaaaaamen. Aaaaaaaamen. Amen

*The G / f# are power chords sliding downwards*

[Chorus](2x)
              Em
Take me to church                 
                                               B7
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                G
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 Am
Offer me that deathless death
     Em                       Am-G-G-F#  = *power chords
Good God, let me give you my life

[Verse 2]
Em                     Am
If I'm a pagan of the good times
Em                Am
My lover's the sunlight
G                    Am
To keep the Goddess on my side
Em               Am
She demands a sacrifice
D
To drain the whole sea
C
Get something shiny

Em                      Am            Em
Something meaty for the main course
                       Am          G
That's a fine looking high horse
                    Am        Em
What you got in the stable?
                         Am
We've a lot of starving faithful
D
That looks tasty
C
That looks plenty
C
This is hungry work

G-F#/F# Em     *The G – f# are power chords sliding downwards*

[Chorus](2x)
              Em
Take me to church                 
                                               B7
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                G
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 Am
Offer me that deathless death
     Em                       Am-G-G-F#  = *power chords
Good God, let me give you my life

[Bridge]
C            G                B7           Em
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
        C            G             B7           Em
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
        C            G          B7           Em
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
     C          G          
Only then I am human

      B7           Em     D     C
Only then I am clean

G      C     G       Cm       G      Cm G   G-F#/F# F 
Amen. Amen. Amen



[Chorus](2x)
              Em
Take me to church                 
                                               B7
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
                                                G
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
                 Am
Offer me that deathless death
     Em                       Am-G-G-F#  = *power chords
Good God, let me give you my life

I think the B in the chorus should be a B7

yes, and like in YouTube's live version the B7 in chorus sounds best as a barre.
