Into my Arms - Beginner Guitar and Ukulele Parts

Hi Everyone,

Who doesn't like a classic Nick Cave. I've recorded a couple of simple beginner parts for ukulele and guitar and included the chord chart thanks to Richard G's Website which has over 1200 ukulele songs from which to choose. 

I hope you enjoy having a virtual sing and a strum with me! 

Helen


Into My Arms Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
(play along in this key)
From: Richard G’s Ukulele Songbook www.scorpex.net/uke.htm

Intro: [G] [C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [F] [C]
[G] [C] [F] I don't believe in an interventionist [C] God
[G] [C] [F] But I know darling that you [C] do
[G] [C] [F] But if I did I would kneel down and [C] ask Him
[G] [C] [F] Not to intervene when it came to [C] you
Not to touch a hair on your [F] head to leave you as you [Dm] are
And if He felt He had to di[G]rect you
Then di[Em]rect you into my [G7] arms
Into my [Dm] arms [Am7] O [Dm] Lord into my [C] arms [G] O [C] Lord
Into my [Dm] arms [Am7] O [Dm] Lord into my [C] arms [G] [C]

[G] [C] [F] And I don't believe in the existence of [C] angels
[G] [C] [F] But looking at you I wonder if that’s [C] true
[G] [C] [F] But if I did I would summon them to[C]gether
[G] [C] [F] And ask them to watch over [C] you
To each burn a candle [F] for you
To make bright and clear your [Dm] path
And to [G] walk like Christ in grace and love
And [Em] guide you into my [G7] arms
Into my [Dm] arms [Am7] O [Dm] Lord into my [C] arms [G] O [C] Lord
Into my [Dm] arms [Am7] O [Dm] Lord into my [C] arms [G] [C]

[G] [C] [F] But I believe in [C] love
[G] [C] [F] And I know that you do [C] too
[G] [C] [F] And I believe in some kind of [C] path
[G] [C] [F] That we can walk down me and [C] you
So keep your candles [F] burning
Make a journey bright and [Dm] pure
That she’ll keep re[G]turning al[Em]ways and ever[G7]more
Into my [Dm] arms [Am7] O [Dm] Lord into my [C] arms [G] O [C] Lord
Into my [Dm] arms [Am7] O [Dm] Lord into my [C] arms [G] [C]
