Chords:
Transpose:
Em C6She had a chalk-white face and dandelion hair
D D A D/A AT'was a wisp of a woman who lived in the tenement upstairs
D C D/C CWhere the walls were so thin
You could hear her
|Em A/E |Em A/E |Em A/E | bleedin'
Em Cmaj7He was mountain of a man that stunk o' Brewdog ale
D/G D6/9 A D/A AWith a fist he swung like a curved-claw hammer on a nail
G/B C D/C CWith all of his might
Most every
|Em A/E |Em A/E |Em A/E |Em night
C D Em7 G AThen it came one day on a cold day in July
Am7 C6 D D6 G B7sus4 B7A time to choose to either live or die
C D/C D B7/D# Em D6 A/C#Like a low-hung fruit sprung from the Tree of Life
C G/B Am F#7Yeah the moment had arrived
B7As he wrapped his hands around her throat
Before the kitchen lights went dark She took hold of the butcher knife
G/F F Em G7And she drove it in to his
|Em |A/E |Em Em/D |A/C#heart
B7She drove it in to his
|Em |A/E |Em Em/D |A/C# B7+9 |heart
|Em A/E |Em A/E |Em A/E |Em
Em C6Soon the police came and they laid her in cuffs
Gsus2 Dsus2 A D/A AThrew her in the back of a black and white and sure enough
C D/C CThey locked her away
CAnd there she would
|Em A/E |Em A/E |Em A/E |Emstay
Cmaj13 Until such time her case was assigned
Gsus2 Dsus2 A D/A A7To a public defender who had ten other trials on his mind
C D/C CThus the verdict was in
Before a word was
|Em A/E |Em A/E |Em A/E |Emspoken
C D Em7 G AThen it came one day on a cold day in July
Am7 C6 D D6 G B7sus4 B7A time to choose to either live or die
C D/C D B7/D# Em D A/C#Like a low-hung fruit sprung from the Tree of Life
C G/B Am F#7Yeah the moment had arrived
B7As I heard her shout, "No way, no how!
No more blood and tears will I shed!" And then there came that terrible silence
G/F F Em B7And that mountain of a man was
|Em |A/E |Em Em/D |A/C# dead
B7Ya that mountain of a man was
|Em |A/E |G/C D/G |D Cmaj7 |dead
|Bb6 Abmaj7 |G F |Em |Em |Em9 |Em9 |
Em D6/9She weren't no newsworthy face, no lady fair
Gsus2 Dsus2 A D/A AJust a hard-luck woman who lived in the tenement upstairs
C D/C CWho by a jury of her peers
Em7Got twenty-five years
