Hope you dig what is not just a great song but a beautiful work of poetry as well.

(2 BEATS PER CHORD)   
INTRO:  Bm F# G A  (4 TIMES, 4 BEATS TO A BAR)
   [Bm]Got a [F#]letter from a [G]messenger[a]
   [Bm]I [F#]read it when it [G]came  [A]
   [Bm]It [F#]said that you were [G]wounded  [A]
   [Bm], [F#]You were bound and [G]chained   [A]
   [D]You had love and you were [G]handled  
   [D]You were poisoned you were [A]pained    
   Oh no[Bm],[F#] Oh no,[G] you were [A]naked
   You were [Bm]shamed  [F#], [G], [a]
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tea_party/the_messenger_crd_ver_2.html ]
[Bm]You could [F#]almost touch [G]hea[A]ven
[Bm]Right [F#]there in front of [G]you [A]
[Bm]Liber[F#]ty just slipped a[G]way on us[A]
[Bm]Now there's [F#]so much work to [G]do [A]
 [D]Oh the door that closes [G]tightly
[D]Is the door than can swing [A]wide
 Oh no[Bm][F#]Oh no[G] not ex[A]pecting to collide [D] (5 BEATS)

 For a minute I let [G]my guard down  [Em]
 Not afraid to be found [D]out  (5 BEATS)
  I completely for[G]got dear    [Em]
 What our fears were all about [D]
Oh no,[Bm][F#]Oh no,[G] there's no [A]need to be with[Bm]out 
[F#] [G] [a]

[Bm]If there's a [F#]chance I would [G]take it[A]
[Bm]This de[F#]sire I can't [G]kill [A]
 [Bm]Take my [F#]heart please don't [G]break it [A]
[Bm]I will [F#]crawl to your foot[G]hill [A]

 [D]I'm frightened but I'm [G]coming
[D]Please baby please lay [A]still
Oh no[Bm][F#], Oh no[G], I'm not [A]coming for the [Bm]kill[F#]
Oh no[G],I’m not [A]coming for the [Bm]kill [F#]
Oh no,[G] I’m not [A]coming for the [D]kill.


Peace,
