C I'll be with them asleep or dreaming I'll be there when they wake up screaming At the hour of death I will nurse them To have a moment more to curse them Watch the maggots crawl out of them Hear the angels call above them Watch them as the cold air sucks them Down to hell good night good luck C Then if any should escape above me Beg and cheat until they trust me Drag them down to be damned with me Laugh at them as they forgive me C F Mothers eyes are sparking diamonds C F C Still the moon shows no likeness C F C Roses wither may god deliver C G The rake at the gates of hell tonight C Am F C F C F G C Am F C F C G Intro Melody (4x) C I wish that they could walk forever On the earth alone unfettered Until they pray for consummation Until they beg for sweat damnation Then I'll come and bring them water Bring them hope, bring them laughter Raise their hopes both sad and sunken Slash them up as they lie there drunken C Push them down into the fowl mud Until they choke up on their own blood Drag them out before their last breath To take away the mercy of death C F Mothers eyes are sparking diamonds C F C Still the moon shows no likeness C F C Roses wither may god deliver C G The rake at the gates of hell tonight C Am F C F C F G C Am F C F C G C F Mothers eyes are sparking diamonds C F C Still the moon shows no likeness C F C Roses wither may god deliver C G The rake at the gates of hell tonight C F Mothers eyes are sparking diamonds C F C Still the moon shows no likeness C F C Roses wither may god deliver C G The rake at the gates of hell tonight Intro Melody (5x) ***Version 2*** by Alex Intro:
