Amen

Amen
    by Jewel Kilcher

---------------------------------------------------------------

D-A-D-F#-A-D

85% of the entire song is this progression...

- -----0---0-------0----0--------0---0-------0---0---
- ---0-------0---0--------0----0-------0---0-------0-
- -2-----------0-------------------------------------
- ---------------------------5-----------5-----------

the first change comes when she starts playing something like this...
(each of these triads are played 4 times in a row)

- ------- ------- ------- -------
- -----0- -----4- -----3- -----2-
- ---0--- ---0--- ---0--- ---0---
- ------- ------- ------- -------
- -5----- -0----- -3----- -2-----
- ------- ------- ------- -------
i guess you could call that part a bridge...
after playing that, you just go back to the first part...
then finally, at the end, after playing that "bridge" part, she goes to
this...

(each of these chords are played twice in a row)
- -------4------- -------3------- -------6-------
- -----4---4----- -----3---3----- -----6---6-----

and ends it all with just the open D...

Verse: (w/rhy. Fig. 1)

   Bm7   Bm7/A    Bm7/G        Bm7    Bm7/A      Bm7/G
1. Your  mother's   child.  But night lays   you   down.

Bm7       Bm7/A       Bm7/G             Bm7     Bm7/A       Bm7/G
   Hair a-flame, wild look in your eyes.  Naked belly to the ground.

Bm7   Bm7/A   Bm7/G   Bm7     Bm7/A    Bm7/G
   A forest    fire    nibbles at your veins, 

Bm7           Bm7/A     Bm7/G               Bm7      Bm7/A        
Bm7/G 
Crawls up your arm runs away with your mind and burns dry thoughts 
like leaves.

Chorus:
