"A Church In Ruins" by Lera Lynn
From the TV series True Detective 2
Written by Lera Lynn and T Bone Burnett
Tabbed by CJWilky

This is for capo on 5, transposing to no capo sounds good too especially if your set up doesn't have much
natural sustain with capo on 5. Though you'll have to work out the changes with the chords that don't format 
here.

She seems to use the lyric "*would* not atone" live.


Standard tuning
Capo 5

           EADGBe
E5        (577955)
          (5x795x) in the intro
E5add#11  (577855)
          (5x785x) in the intro 

Am11 and Bm11 may not strictly be the correct names, they're simple one finger barres played 5 and 7 frets up
from the capo on 5:
Am11     (10,10,10,10,10,10)
Bm11     (12,12,12,12,12,12)



[Intro]
E5add#11   E5
E5add#11   E5
Em

[Verse 1]
Em
You were alone and you were alive

Among the walkin' dead

He was a liar, could not atone

Still he went to your head

[Chorus]
          Bm11       Am11        Bm11        Am11
He said, "I love you baby like a miner loves gold
Bm11              Am11       Bm11
    And this will never grow old"

[Verse 2]
Em
Lost in the ether, down in the blind 

And not a word was said

But he was neither vicious or kind
                    E5
As he lay there and bled

[Break]
E5add#11   E5        E5add#11   E5
Em         Em        Em         Em
Em         Em        Em         E5

[Pre Chorus]
Bm11           Am11          Bm11          Am11
His hands were on you and it felt just the same
Bm11        Am11             Bm11
 As when he didn't know your name

[Chorus]
          Bm11       Am11        Bm11          Am11
He said, "I love you baby like a man who loves gold
Bm11              Am11       Bm11
    And this will never grow old"

[Verse 3]
Em
Darkness will cover you

A church in ruins

There's nothing left to feel

Goodbye lover, this is your doing
                    E5
A heart against the wheel


[Outro]
E5add#11   E5   E5add#11   E5
Em
