First, what a great site. I'm sad I didn't find it 10 years ago. Now, to business: I'm trying to figure out the chord sequence for the Iris Dement song, Let the Mystery Be. As an aside, she does a wonderful, very moving show.

Can't help you with the chord sequence but I can say "Welcome on board and hope your stay is a memorable one".

Depends on the key you want to do it in.

In the key of D the chords would probably be:-

line 1: DGAD
line 2: DGAD
line 3: DGABm
line 4: DAD

for G try the chords G C D and Em

LET THE MYSTERY BE
Iris DeMent}


{c:CHORUS:}
[D]Everybody is w[G]onderin' what and w[A]here they all came f[D]rom
Everybody is w[G]orryin' 'bout where they're gonna [A]go
When the whole thing's d[D]one
But no one knows for c[G]ertain, and so it's a[D]ll the same to [G]me
[D]I think I'll just [A] let the mystery [D] be.

1. Some say once gone you're g[G]one forever
    And s[D]ome say say you're gonna come b[A]ack
Some s[D]ay you rest in the a[G]rms of the Saviour
If in s[D]inful ways you l[A]ack
Some s[D]ay that they're comin' b[G]ack in a garden
Bunch of c[D]arrots and little sweet p[G]eas
[D] I think I'll just [A] let the mystery [D] be.

{c:CHORUS}

2. Some s[D]ay they're goin' to a p[G]lace called Glory
And I a[D]in't sayin' it ain't a f[A]act
But I've h[D]eard that I'm on the r[G]oad to purgatory
And I d[D]on't like the sound of t[A]hat
[D] I believe in l[G]ove and I live my l[D]ife according[G]ly
[D] But I choose [A] to let the mystery [D] be.

{c:CHORUS}

I came across a live performance by Iris DeMent that's just too good to miss:

LET THE MYSTERY BE
Iris Dement

Everybody's wonderin' what and where they all came from.
Everybody's worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done.
But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.

Some say once you're gone you're gone forever, and some say you're gonna come back.
Some say you rest in the arms of the Saviour if in sinful ways you lack.
Some say that they're comin' back in a garden, bunch of carrots and little sweet peas.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.

Everybody's wonderin' what and where they all came from.
Everybody's worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done.
But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.

Instrumental break.

Some say they're goin' to a place called Glory and I ain't saying it ain't a fact.
But I've heard that I'm on the road to purgatory and I don't like the sound of that.
Well, I believe in love and I live my life accordingly.
But I choose to let the mystery be.

Everybody's wonderin' what and where they all came from.
Everybody's worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done.
But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.
