Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - The Boatmans Call chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Here's another chord compilations of one of the most depressing albums I've ever heard. 
a pretty spare, acoustic/piano album so I figured it'd be cool to collect the chords to 
in one place. Here it goes!

All transcription credit goes to Alon Drori, Boaz, Moho, Leo McPartland, Peter 
and ondrej.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds'

1. Into My Arms

Note: If chord reads, */# play the chord * with the # bass note.

                                      C     G/B C F/C
I don't believe in an interventionist God
                              C   G/B C F/C
But I know, darling, that you do
                                    C       G/B C F/C
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

  Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that's true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms

And I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms

2. Lime-Tree Arbour

The boatman calls from the lake
   F              G
A lone loon dives upon the water
I put my hand over hers
   F              G        C
Down in the lime-tree arbour

The wind in the trees is whispering
   F                  G
Whispering low that I love her
She puts her hand over mine
   F                  G        C
Down in the lime-tree arbour

        Through every breath that I breathe
          Am                    F
        And every place I go
          Fm             C         Am
        There is a hand that protects me
          F          G           C
        And I do love her so

Repeat the same chords through the
others lyrics and chorus

7. Where Do We Go Now But Nowhere?

   Gm             Cm
I remember a girl so very well
   Gm               F
The carnival drum all mad in the air
   Gm                          Dm
Grim reapers and skeletons and a missionary bell
   Bb                   F
O where do we go now but nowhere

   Gm               Cm
In a colonial hotel we fucked up the sun
   Gm               F
And then we fucked it down again
   Gm               Dm
Well the sun goes up and the sun goes down
   Bb                      F
Going round and around but nowhere

   Gm                  Cm
The kitten that padded and purred on my lap
   Gm                  F
Now swipes at my face with the paw of a bear
   Gm                    Dm
I turn the other cheek and you lay into that
   Bb                F
O where do we go now but nowhere

          Eb                         F
          O wake up my love my lover wake up

          O wake up my love my lover wake up

and as they usher me off to my end
                            D     C
will I bid you adieu?
                            D     C
