Am	C G

Am C GTwelve men broke loose in '73
From Millhaven maximum security Twelve pictures lined up across the front page Seems the Mounties had a summertime war to wage
Am C GThe chief told the people they had nothing to fear
The last thing they'd wanna do is hang around here They mostly came from towns with long French names But one of the dozen was a hometown shame [Chorus]
C/G D AmSame pattern on the table, same clock on the wall
Been one seat empty 18 years in all Freezing slow time away from the world He’s 38 years old, never kissed a girl He’s 38 years old, never kissed a girl
Am C GWe were sittin' at the table, heard the telephone ring
Father said he'd tell me if he saw anything Heard the tap on the window in the middle of the night Held back the curtains for my older brother mike
Am DSee my sister got raped, so a man got killed
C/G DLittle boy went to prison, man's buried on the hill
Am DFolks went back to normal when they closed the case
C/G DThey still stare at their shoes when they pass our place
Am C GMy mother cried the horror has finally ceased
He whispered yeah, for the time being, at least And over his shoulder, on the squad car megaphone Said let's go Mikey, son, we're takin' you home [Chorus]
