Iron Maiden – Hallowed Be Thy Name chords

Em C D I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Em C D Em Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
C D Em 'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows pole,
C D Em The sands of time for me are running low.
Em When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
G C I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
A D B E B C Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.
Em Can it be that there's some sort of error.
G C Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
A D B E B C Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?
Em Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
C It's not so easy to stop from screaming,
D B E B C But words escape me when i try to speak.
Em Tears flow but why am I crying,
C After all I'm not afraid of dying.
D B E B C Don't I believe that there never is an end.
Em As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
C Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
D B E B C If there's a God then why has he let me go?
Em As I walk all my life drifts before me,
C Though the end is near I'm still not sorry.
D B E B C Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away.
Em Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
C Don't worry now that I have gone.
D I've gone beyond to see the truth.
Em When you know that your time is close at hand.
C Maybe then you'll begin to understand,
D B E B C Em Bm C Life down here is just a strangeillusion
B Em A D G C A D Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... Hallowed Be Thy Name
