Write me if you use this.
Note: the timing of the words to the chord changes is
approximate, because the singer uses very elastic phrasing.
This is how I do it.
[verse] 
[D]When I think of heaven[A]
[Bm]Deliver me [A]in a black-winged [D]bird
[A]I think of [Bm]flying [A]down into a [D]sea of pens and [A]feathers
[Bm]And all other [A]instruments of [D]faith and sex and [A]God
In the belly of a [Bm]black-winged [A]bird.
[Bm]Don't [G]try to feed me
[Bm]I've been [G]here before
And [D]I deserve a [E]little more
[cborus] 
[A]I [Bm]belong[D] in the [E]service of the [A]Queen
[A]I [Bm]belong[D] any[E]where but in bet[A]ween
[A]She's been [Bm]crying [D]and I've been th[E]inking
[A]And I [Bm]am the [D]Rain King[E]
[verse] 
[E]And I said [D]mama, mama, [A]mama, why am [Bm]I so [A]alone?
[D]I can't go [A]outside
I'm scared I [Bm]might not make it [A]home
I'm [D]alive, I'm a[A]live
But I[Bm]'m sinking in[A]
If there's [D]anyone at home at [A]your place, darling
[Bm]Why don't you invite me [A]in?
[Bm]Don't [G]try to bleed me
[Bm]I've been [G]there before
And [D]I deserve a [E]little more
[cborus] 
[A]I [Bm]belong[D] in the [E]service of the [A]Queen
[A]I [Bm]belong[D] anyw[E]here but in bet[A]ween
[A]She's been [Bm]lying [D]and I've been s[E]inking
[A]And I [Bm]am the [D]Rain King[E]
[bridge] 
[Bm]Hey, I only [D]want the same as [A]anyone
[Bm]Henderson is [D]wait[A]ing [Bm]for the sun
Oh, it seems night [D]endlessly [A]begins and ends
[Bm]After all the [D]dreaming I come [A]home again
repeat D A Bm A 2x here
[verse] 
[D]When I think of [A]heaven
[Bm]Deliver me [A]in a black-winged [D]bird
[A]I think of [Bm]dying
[A]Lay me down in a [D]field of flame and [A]heather
[Bm]Render up my [A]body into the [D]burning heart of [A]God
In the belly of [Bm]a black-winged [A]bird
[Bm]Don't [G]try to bleed me
[Bm]I've been [G]here before
And [D]I deserve a [E]little more
[cborus] 
[A]I [Bm]belong[D] in the [E]service of the [A]queen
[A]I [Bm]belong[D] anyw[E]here but in bet[A]ween
[A]She's been [Bm]dying [D]and I've been [E]drinking
[A]And I [Bm]am the [D]Rain King[E]
