Mysterious Ways

(Heavy distortion recommended)

This song can be played with a capo on the 8th fret, if you can do that.
Then it becomes fairly simple just playing D instead of A, etc. (see the
chord formations). Or you can play it with a capo on 1st fret, which is
how I've finally put the chords. (Editor's Comment)

Intro/transitions: (Repeated about 9 times)
E--------------------------------------
B------10-10---------------------------
G-------9--9---------------------------
D----7--7--7---------------------------
A-10-----------------------------------
E--------------------------------------
  (Note: the above is basically the A chord played on a few strings)

(Note: chords given below generally are played by an organ in background)

A                             D
Johnny took a walk with your sister the moon
        A                 E
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
A                               D
You've been living underground, eating from a can
A                                       E           A
You've been running away from what you don't understand (love)
    
Chorus: (the chorus basically just switches back between the A and D chords)

E--------------10-10-|-----------------
B------10-10---10-10-|-----------------
G-------9--9----7--7-|-----------------
D-------7--7---------|-----------------
A--------------------|-----------------
E--------------------|-----------------
         (A)    (D)

(So, when you see A or D, play the above chord formations, respectively)

A              D
She's slippy, you're sliding down
A                D
She'll be there when you hit the ground

A                      D
It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
C               G
She moves in mysterious ways
A                      D
It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
C               G
She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can't explain
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky
Better learn how to kneel (...on your knees boy!)
    
She's the wave, she turns the tide
She sees the man inside the child

It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways                    (x3)
It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
Lift my days...light up my nights

Bridge: (Strum each chord once, and let ring)

Am                   D             Am
One day you'll look back and you'll see
                G               A
Where you were held how by this love
                 D
While you could stand there
        C
And not move on this moment
G
Follow this feeling

It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
We move through miracle days
Spirit moves in mysterious ways
She moves with it, she moves with it
C                G                    A
Lift my days and light up my nights
