Shindig Avenue – Death Sentence Blues chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
EmI spent a year inside of Folsom
DA couple more in Reno too
AmNow I'm strapped down to a table
BFor a crime I didn't do
EmAnd I've been keeping it a secret
DOnly the sheriff's widow knows
AmIt wasn't me who killed her husband
BThis is how the story goes:
[Verse 2]
EmWe met on a bridge at a quarter to two
DWe decided to run. It was all we could do
Am BBut he had followed us to the edge of town
EmAnd he came from the dark and took me by surprise.
DAs I saw my life flash right before my own eyes
Am BI heard the gunshots ring out through the darkness
[Pre-Chorus]
C DAnd when the deed was done
C DIt was my lover with the smoking gun
C DI said, "I shot. You ran. I killed your husband"
[Chorus]
GThe killer's in me
BI'm so crazy,
Em C BA voice told me to do it in my dream
Am C GNo, I didn't see a woman fleeing the scene
BIt was me, I acted all alone
[Interlude] Em D Am B [Verse 3]
EmThey beat me down till I was broken
DI didn't think they'd ever stop
AmShe never told me that her husband
BWas an undercover cop
EmBut I was sticking to my story
DI got no motive, no excuse
AmShe said that she could get me out
BBut she could never get me loose
EmAnd the verdict was guilty on all of the counts
DAnd I had no defense, I had only one out
Am BAs the prosecution called in one last witness
EmAnd she walked through the door with a tear in her eye
DWhen she walked down the aisle, she broke down and cried
Am BBut no one will ever really quite no why (no!)
C DShe sat on the witness stand
C DAnd said the alibi that we had planned
C D"He shot. I ran. I didn't kill my husband!"
[Chorus]
GThe killer's in me
BI'm so crazy,
Em C BA voice told me to do it in my dream
Am C GNo, I didn't see a woman fleeing the scene
B CIt was me, I acted all alone
DI pulled the trigger on my own
B EmAnd now I'm gonna die alone…
[Instrumental] Em A C A Em A D x2 [Chorus]
C DTook a glimpse at the setting sun
C DI regret some things i've done
Cbut she shot. I ran.
DI didn't kill her husband!
GThe killer's not me
BI'm not that crazy
Em C BBut now's not the time for me to come clean
Am C G BNo I didn't see a woman fleeing the scene….
[Outro] C D D# Em
