BACK to C#m, E, B, A pattern after the bridge. Finish the song on A.
CHORDS VERSION:
INTRO: At the top of the tab or you can just strum C#m, E, B, A.
VERSE 1
[C#m]Killing for salvation he was [E]sitting on his throne
And he [B]thought "there's ways to reach these folks and [A]teach them
what we've known?
[C#m]Into the receiver came a [E]voice unlike his kind,
they're not [B]speaking the same language but there's [A]common ground
he'll find
CHORUS
[C#m] I don't need to [E]kill anyone
[B] To let them know I am for [A]real
[C#m] I don't need to [E]walk in your backyard
[B] To let you know just where I [A]stand
VERSE 2
So we're [C#m]picking our pieces for the [E]safety of our sons
He's not [B]reaching for an agreement but he's [A]reaching for our guns
[C#m]He don't need to questions he don't [E]need to compromise
There's no [B]use in a conversation if there's [A]nothing left to find
CHORUS
BRIDGE
[E] Cuz I res[F#]pect your [A]home and what you say
[E] when you're sp[F#]eaking to me[A]
[E] And when it's [F#]time to lo[A]ok you in the eye
[F#] And you'll know where I'm coming [A]from
[F#] Do you know where I'm coming [A]from
ENDING: Back to the same strum pattern of C#m, E, B, A with the same timing
as the rest of the song. Play it until it ends. Ends on A.
