Chord transcription by Cameron Taylor <camtaylor@techemail.com> 04 Jul 97


INTRO: -play once thru bridge

    Em       Am9      Em     Am9      Em       Am9      Em
She likes to keep God out of church especially when she prays
    Em      Am9       Em     Am9        Em     Am9    D
All in it's place all safely stored for some location day
Am
The paradox is so apparent the sense absurd but all too real
                                             Em Am9 Em Am9     G  F#   Em
The nonsense is arrant but she just wants to feel.............comfortable

A pound in the collection-box a name plate by the aisle
She always wears a hat a heel appreciate the style
Pays no attention to the sermon Christ in himself has no appeal
The social custom is the turn-on and she just wants to feel....comfortable

Bridge:
       G    F#    E    D
   She doesn't want to know     Treading not on her illusions
       G    F#    E    D
   She doesn't want to hear     I will not walk upon my own
       G    F#    E    D
   She doesn't want to see      We stand among the creature comforts
G F# E D           G F# E D      G F# E        Em  Am9  Em  Am9    G F# E
We're standing on the stockpiles......of first stones

We stand on the brink of the Ultrapower assume it's a proper place
View the living hour by hour in the first person singular case
On with the usual complacent wait for the mortal wound to heaal
When the abyss is adjacent what right have we got to feel......comfortable

     improvised section over Am chord

Am
On with the usual complacency on with the customary zeal
She doesn't need to match a valency she just wants to feel......comfortable

It's her blindness and her blessing that the thought will not occur
That heaven when it comes might have no special place for her
She'll never look at the enigma she doesn't want things quite that real
Oh, that's some kind of stigma what right has she got to feel...comfortable
What right has she got to feel..................................comfortable
What right has she got to feel

guit. melody = descending line G F# E A../..G F# E A(play A 1 octave higher)

Em      Am9            Em            Am9
   She doesn't want to think about it
Em      Am9            Em           Am9
   She doesn't want to talk about it
Em      Am9            Em         Am9
   She doesn't want to look at it
   Em                Am9
It makes her feel uncomfortable       G  F#  E
