                             Ten Thousand - John Mark Mcmillan 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
These are the chords that the acoustic is playing during the song. Your going to 
have to figure out the strum pattern by yourself. The Chorus can be played with a 
D instead of a B but it's going to sound funny on guitar no matter what. Try it on 
a key board and it will fit. 

Intro : E,A

Verse 1:
E                                 
Ten thousand glimmering like coals in our chest
A
Ball bearings drawn to the magnetic breath
    E
Of ten thousand weeping with wings on their tears
        A
Amidst ten thousand voices for ten thousand years
         E
For ten thousand graves yawning unlocked and unlatched
     A
Now ten thousand holes with rocks on their backs
    E
Ten thousand tombs gaping wide singing the praise
    A
Of ten thousand bodies unlaced and unlaid


Pre - Chorus:
        B                     A
As the ten thousand highways unfold their doors
         B                        A
For the ten thousand standing on Nineveh's shores
            E                   A                               
Where the blood of a husband silences wars
B                          E
For the girl who rises to meet him
and she sings


Chorus:
A
World, I have overcome you
E
World, I have overcome you
B
World, I have overcome
       A             E         B
By my song and the blood of a son


Verse 2: 
E
Ten thousand rivers run red like my veins
A
Where the bones of men hum like a rattling cage
E
For sinew to cling to for wind to remain
A
In ten thousand lungs for ten thousand days
E
Breathing like a choir of holes in the ground
A
Where the cynical have lain, where the cynical go down
E
Save the gravity of time lets go of her drowned
A
Like ten thousand sparrows unlocked and unwound

The chords are pretty accurate. It's noteworthy to say that for most of the song, each measure is seven counts instead of the usual eight. So yeah, be sure to listen for the strum pattern.

By just listening, it looks like he played it with a Capo on 4 and key of C. That way, it's much easier to play around with the hammer/pull parts.
