John Mark McMillan Ten Thousand From "The Medicine" Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter) While some of the submitted chords are correct that this is in E, that's not the best way to play it. The way to get the hammer on's is capo 4 in the C position. It sounds better and is much more playable. Capo 4 Intro x2 C//-/// G// C//-///-///-/// Am7// G// C// F//-///-///-/// Verse 1 C G C Ten thousand glimmering like coals in our chest Am7 G C F Our ball bearings drawn to the magnetic breath C G C Of ten thousand weeping with wings on their tears Am7 G C F Amidst ten thousand voices for ten thousand years C G C For ten thousand graves yawning unlocked and unlatched Am7 G C F Now ten thousand holes with rocks on their backs C G C Ten thousand tombs gaping wide singing the praises Am7 G C F Of ten thousand bodies unlaced and unlaid Pre - Chorus G Am7 F As the ten thousand highways unfold their doors G Am7 F For the ten thousand standing on Nineveh's shores C G C Where the blood of a husband silences wars F G C For the girl who rises to meet Him, and she sings Chorus F World, I have overcome you Am7 World, I have overcome you G World, I have overcome F G By my song and the blood of a son Verse 2 Ten thousand rivers run red like my veins Where the bones of men hum like a rattling cage For sinew to cling to for wind to remain In ten thousand lungs for ten thousand days Breathing like a choir of holes in the ground Where the cynical have lain, where the cynical go down Save the gravity of time lets go of her drowned Like ten thousand sparrows unlocked and unwound Pre Chorus Chorus x2 If you have any input or corrections, check out my blog for more info and let me know if you have any songs you need help with.
