Shindig Avenue – Death Sentence Blues chords
[Verse 1]EmI spent a year inside of FolsomDA couple more in Reno tooAmNow I'm strapped down to a tableBFor a crime I didn't doEmAnd I've been keeping it a secretDOnly the sheriff's widow knowsAmIt wasn't me who killed her husbandBThis is how the story goes:[Verse 2]EmWe met on a bridge at a quarter to twoDWe decided to run. It was all we could doAm BBut he had followed us to the edge of townEmAnd he came from the dark and took me by surprise.DAs I saw my life flash right before my own eyesAm BI heard the gunshots ring out through the darkness[Pre-Chorus]C DAnd when the deed was doneC DIt was my lover with the smoking gunC DI said, "I shot. You ran. I killed your husband"[Chorus]GThe killer's in meBI'm so crazy,Em C BA voice told me to do it in my dreamAm C GNo, I didn't see a woman fleeing the sceneBIt was me, I acted all alone[Interlude] Em D Am B [Verse 3]EmThey beat me down till I was brokenDI didn't think they'd ever stopAmShe never told me that her husbandBWas an undercover copEmBut I was sticking to my storyDI got no motive, no excuseAmShe said that she could get me outBBut she could never get me looseEmAnd the verdict was guilty on all of the countsDAnd I had no defense, I had only one outAm BAs the prosecution called in one last witnessEmAnd she walked through the door with a tear in her eyeDWhen she walked down the aisle, she broke down and criedAm BBut no one will ever really quite no why (no!)C DShe sat on the witness standC DAnd said the alibi that we had plannedC D"He shot. I ran. I didn't kill my husband!"[Chorus]GThe killer's in meBI'm so crazy,Em C BA voice told me to do it in my dreamAm C GNo, I didn't see a woman fleeing the sceneB CIt was me, I acted all aloneDI pulled the trigger on my ownB EmAnd now I'm gonna die alone…[Instrumental] Em A C A Em A D x2 [Chorus]C DTook a glimpse at the setting sunC DI regret some things i've doneCbut she shot. I ran.DI didn't kill her husband!GThe killer's not meBI'm not that crazyEm C BBut now's not the time for me to come cleanAm C G BNo I didn't see a woman fleeing the scene….[Outro] C D D# Em
