Verse 1
C               F
How miserable I am
                                                 C
I feel like a fruit-picker who arrives after the harvest
                        F
There's nothing here at all
                                          Am 
Nothing at all here that could placate my hunger
          C              F   
The godly people are all gone
                                             C
There's not one honest soul left here on the planet
                        F 
We're all murderers and thieves
                                Am 
Setting traps here for even our brothers

Chorus 1
    Gsus2       F
And both of our hands
            C
Are equally skilled
Gsus2    F
At doing evil
        C
Equally skilled
   Gsus2       F
At bribing the judges
        C
Equally skilled
Gsus2         F  
At perverting justice
            Gsus2
Both of our hands
            C
Both of our hands

Verse 2
    C              F
The day of justice comes
                        C
And is even now swiftly arriving
                      F
Don't trust anyone at all
                                  Am
Not your best friend or even your wife
        C             F
For the son hates the father
                               C 
The daughter despises even her mother
                      F 
Look Your enemies are right
                               Am  
Right in the room of your very household

Chorus 1

Interlude
Same as Intro

Bridge
    D                Gsus2  
No, don't gloat over me

For though I fall, though I fall
            D     Dsus2  D
I will rise again
                     Gsus2
Though I sit here in darkness

The Lord, the Lord alone
              Bm    Riff
He will be my light
          Asus4          Gsus2 
I will be patient as the Lord
                                        D
Punishes me for the wrongs I've done against Him
                         Gsus2
After that He'll take my case

Bringing me to light and to justice
               Bm
For all I have suffered

Chorus 2
    Asus4       Gsus2 
And both of His hands
            D
Are equally skilled
Asus4      Gsus2 
At ruining evil
        D
Equally skilled
Asus4          Gsus2
At judging the judges
        D
Equally skilled
Asus4         Gsus2
Administering justice
            Asus4
Both of His hands
            Gsus2
Both of His hands

Chorus 3
            D
Are equally skilled
Asus4         Gsus2
At showing me mercy
        Bm
Equally skilled
Asus4         Gsus2
At loving the loveless
        D
Equally skilled
Asus4         Gsus2
Administering justice
            Asus4    
Both of His hands
            Gsus2  A  D  
Both of His hands

There's a better way to play the intro; it's almost identical, it just erases the need for stretching the fingers (which I'm great at, but could be really hard for some other people). It also flows more naturally into the C and D that follow the riff the two times it is used.

Intro

B|--------1-----------1-----------0-----------------------1-----------1-----------1----------1---|
G|--------------------------------------------2--------------------------------------------------|

The intro is not a straight Am, it's an Am7. Check this out:
