John Mark McMillan
I am a Temple
From "The Song Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down"

C - G - am - F

Verse 1
C             G                           am                F
Deep inside me there's this burning that just won't let me go
C                G                         am                F
You are my fire, You are my righteousness, You are my rock in roll

C - Dm - F - E/F - Dm

Verse 2
C                      G
I wish I could fit you down inside my chest God
  am                            F
I wish that I could swallow you whole
C                      G
I'd wrap you up in a blanket of my skin
              am             F
and you could call my body home

Pre-Chorus x2
C              Dm                F          E/F     Dm
I am a temple, I am a temple, My body is a temple, I , I am a temple

[ Tab from: ]
                    C                          F
So what if I'm not worthy! So what if I'm not worthy!
                   G       am               G
So what if I'm not worthy! You have made me clean


Verse 3
C                    G
I can't get over how quickly you recover
   am                            F
The pieces of my heart as they shatter
C                        G
Cause in your hands I am more than just a brand new man
    am                            F
And all my falling down now, well, it just don't matter

Pre-Chorus x2
Chorus x2

The lead riff throughout the song is picked in these two positions. Listen 
for the changes. 


For the interlude and pre-chorus, start with the C on the 8th fret bar chord
and climb up from there. 

For the E/F, play:


For the rest of the guitar stuff, get creative and just play the mess out of
it. Great song to improv and riff on.
