Elvis Costello - A Condemned Man chords


AmJudge said, "Son, you better say your prayers
F EGot a noose that fits you and some gallow stairs
Am Am/g EAnd by this time tomorrow you won't be alive
Am Am/g FSoon we'll be giving you 10,000 volts"
E AmAnd I said, "Make that twenty five"
The firing squad have got me right in their sights Got me strapped up tightly with some dynamite And I hear the executioner has got a brand new kink He's giving me cyanide to breathe and strychnine to drink
F C/b AmSo dress me in chains and bind me in shackles
F C/b AmThe last thing you'll hear is my cold hearted cackle
F C/b Am D GThe last thing you'll see is my twisted leer
C C7 F E AmI'm a condemned man and I'll never get out of here
G D F CThe searchlight's sweeping up from the prison tower
G D F CThe clock is creeping up to the midnight hour
G D F F F COutside they're wailing, "Repent, repent, repent, and believe"
C7 F EThere's a telephone ringing but no chance of reprieve
AmAll you straight shooters and God fearing dolts
Am Am/g F ECan be scared rigid by electrical volts
F C/b Am D GBut I can't be killed by any regular means
C C7 F E AmOr I'll come back to haunt you and visit your dreams
