F#m A E F#mPillary stocks at the gallows tree dock
F#m A E Ethe crowd grew impatient as the clouds threatened rain
F#m A E F#mElephant arrived at the Constable's side,
F#m A E Ewith her trunk locked in shackles, and her ankles in chains
[Bailiff:]
F#m A E F#m"All rise, all rise, his Honor presides,"
F#m A E Ethe Judge took the bench to the village brass cavalcade,
F#m A E Elephant refused to swear the oath, said
[Elephant:]
F#m F#m "I don't know anything about truth,
A E but I know falsehood when I see it,
E F#m A E F#m F#m A E Eand it looks like this whole world you've made"
F#m A E F#mGood of our chaplain to sail Kalispell Bay
F#m A E EAnd now down on his marrows for this old fool to pray,
F#m A E F#m"Lord, for sixty-some years I've surrendered my love,
F#m A E Eto emblems of kindness, and not the kindness they were emblems of,
F#m A E F#mTrammels and rings, with the strength of old strings,
F#m A E Eand some hobble skirt spring, by the old problem caught,
F#m A E F#mChildren, sometimes I think all our thoughts are just things,
F#m A E and then sometimes think things are just thoughts,"

F#m A E EScottish Oatcakes in haversacks each to its grave
F#m A E F#m This mock trial can no more determine my lot,
F#m A E than can driftwood determine the ocean's waves,
E F#m A E F#m Brandish your ropes and your boards, and your basket-hilt swords,
F#m A E Ebut what is there can punish like a conscience ignored?
F#m A E Yes, my body did just as you implied,
F#m F#m A E while some ghost we'll call 'I' idly watched through its eyes,"
Eand the jury sang,
Bm A F#m Bm"Hang! the Elephant must hang! the Elephant must hang!
Bm A F#m BmHang! the Elephant must hang! the Elephant must hang!
Bm A F#m BmHang! the Elephant must hang! the Elephant must hang!
Bm A F#m BmHang! the Elephant must hang! the Elephant must hang!"
[Elephant:]

Bm F#m I feel it stealing now
Bm F#m I feel it stealing now
Bm All adrift fathoms down
