Em Em7 Dsus2 Cmaj7 Cadd9 He knows well his... wicked ways, a... course of bitter - ness,
Em Em7 Dsus2 Cmaj7 Cadd9 A grudge held from his... childhood days, as if...life had loved him less,
Am Am6 Am7 D Reading down his... list of names, he... ticks them, one by one,
Fm Gm Ab Bb He points the barrel at the sky, firing shots off... at the sun,
Esus4 Em D Cmaj7 Bm7 B7 Emsus2 Em D| /_/_/ /_/_/ | /_/_/ /_/_/ | I am the law, and I am the king-------------,
Cmaj7 B7 Em I am the wisdom, listen to me sing!
Em Em7 Dus2 Cmaj7 Cadd9 He carves out the... victims names, in the wooden butt of the... gun,
Em Em7 Dsus2 Cmaj7 Cadd9 He leans well back a - gainst the tree, he knows his kingdoms come,
Am Am6 Am7 DHe'll... breath a sigh, self - satisfied, the... work is in good hands,
Fm Gm Ab Bb He shoots the coins in - to the air, and...follows where the...money lands,

Cmaj7 B7 Em I am the wisdom, listen to me sing!
Em Em7 Dsus2 Cmaj7 Cadd9 He pauses at the... city's edge, of hellfire and of stone,
Em Em7 Dsus2 Cmaj7 Cadd9 He summons up the... devil there, to give him... courage of his own,
Am Am6 Am7 DHe'll... free the sinners... of deceit, they'll... hear his name and run,
Fm Gm Ab Bb His justice is his own reward, measured out be - neath the sun!
