Sinner Chords
SINNER
(Neil Finn/Marius deVries)

NOTES: At first this doesn't seem like a very likely acoustic
guitar song, but if you can get two guitarists -- one playing
the rhythm chords, and one playing the little riff, you can do
a really nice version.

MAIN GUITAR/BASS RIFF UNDERLYING THE SONG:

--3---3----1--3--1--------||

INTRO:   Gm    C

Gm    C           Gm           C
See it anyone, got my eyes got my face

Gm         C             Gm          C
sing it everyone, got my nose got my blood

VERSE:

Gm              C               Gm   C
conscience plays upon on me now

Gm            C             Gm   C
safe until my luck runs out

Gm          C
cuckoos call pendulum swings

Gm              C
thought you knew everything

Gm            C
lift my hands make the cross


CHORUS:

Gm                  F
Sinner I have never learned

  Gm                F
beginner I cannot return

   G                     D#
forever I must walk this earth

             C
like some forgotten soldier


VERSE:
These things I should keep to myself
but I feel somehow strangely compelled
under moonlight I stood wild and naked
I felt no shame, just my spirit awaken

Gm
Sinner

Seeing everything, got my eyes got my face


VERSE:
Fireball drop from the sky
all my dreams have come to pass
where's my faith, is it lost
I can't see it til I cast it off

CHORUS:
Sinner there is no such thing
beginner I have learned to sing
forever I must walk this earth
like some forgotten soldier

VERSE:
Today I am still disconnected
to the face that I saw in the clouds
and the closest I get to contentment
is when all of the barriers come down
(Sinner)
these things I should keep to myself
but I feel somehow strangely compelled
and the closest I get to contentment
is when all of the barriers come down


RIDE OUT:  Gm   C

About the artist behind Sinner Chords:

Neil Mullane Finn OBE (born May 27, 1958, in Te Awamutu, New Zealand) is a singer and songwriter and one of New Zealand's foremost musicians. He is the frontman for Crowded House, and previously for Split Enz. He was born Cornelius Mullane Finn ("I was christened Cornelius, and dropped it at an early age thinking it was a bit corny," Finn told Australian television host Andrew Denton in 1995.)

Finn rose to prominence in the late 1970s after replacing singer songwriter Phil Judd in his brother Tim Finn's band Split Enz. With the group, Finn wrote the hits "One Step Ahead", "History Never Repeats", "I Got You" and "Message to My Girl", among others. Finn rose from prominence to international fame after Split Enz broke up in 1984 when he formed Crowded House with Split Enz's final drummer Paul Hester in 1985. The group achieved international success in 1987 when they released the single "Don't Dream It's Over" written by Finn. Finn ended Crowded House in 1996 to embark upon what was to become a moderately successful solo career, and has released two albums with his brother Tim under the title the Finn Brothers. In 2007, Finn reunited Crowded House and released a new album, Time on Earth, and the band began a world tour.
