Murder By Death – Big Sleep chords

Bm EmAt the end of the road
A BmHe calls everyone home
Bm EmAnd the fire will consume us
F# Striking through to the bone
Bm EmAt the end of the road
A Bmyou will sleep, hear him call
Bm Em as the congregations crumble
F# Bmand the chapels will fall
Em AAnd the taste on your tongue,
Bmwell it comes yeah it comes
F#With the bittersweet pang of remorse and pain
Em ATill the judgment is made
BmThe prosecution’s won
The gavel has fallen
F# BmAnd justice is done
Interlude: Bm Em A Bm Em F#
Bm EmThe courtroom clears
A BmI’m left alone on the bench
Bm EmMy wife and children gone
F#Along with the defense
Em A BmThe bailiff leads me back to my cell
Bm F# BmLike the riverman, ferrying me to Hell
Em A I can’t blame ‘em, no
Bm To hate me for what I’ve done
Em AI hear them whispering in the hall
Bm“you’ll live and die by the gun”
Em A Bm All I can do is sit here and pray
Bm F# BmI’ll be forgiven on judgment day
Em ATell my wife in our yard
BmBuried underneath the pine
Em AThere's a shoebox full of money
Bmof which I never earned a dime
Em F#Use it to start over,
Bmthe way things should have been
F#Live honest, and love again
Em F# BmTell my wife, tell my kids, I never meant for this to happen
Interlude: Bm Em F# A Bm F# end on Bm When they flip the switch, please do not stay I couldn't bear for you to remember me this way
