The Gallows Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords by Westan James, the guitar chords are by Marc Fahrbach. Wylde Nept-the gallows.

1. It (Em)stands alone a(D)gainst the sky

Where (Am)seawinds blow and (Em)seabirds fly

A darkened and fore(D)boding tree

(Am)Bet your purse it (Em)waits for me

The (Em)gallows wait, a(D)gainst the sky

The (Am)gallows wait, where (Bm)seabirds fly

The (Em)gallows wait, fore(D)boding tree

The (Am)gallows wait, it (D)waits for (Em)me

2. (Em)Cold, alone, sway (D)with the wind
(Am)Pray it’s not for (Em)you my friend
Though it’s true that I (D)have sinned
(Am)T’was not meant to (Em)be my end

The (Em)gallows wait, (D)with the wind
The (Am)gallows wait, for (Bm)you my friend
The (Em)gallows wait, for (D)I have sinned

The (Am)gallows wait, to (D)be my (Em)end

3. But (Em)I will not a(D)bandon hope
To (Am)yet avoid that (Em)sturdy rope
While you dance out(D)side my cell
And (Am)think that I will (Em)go to hell

The (Em)gallows wait, a(D)bandon hope
The (Am)gallows wait, a (Bm)sturdy rope
The (Em)gallows wait, out(D)side my cell
The (Am)gallows wait, I'll (D)go to (Em)Hell!


4. U(Em)pon these walls a (D)true confession,
(Am)Thieving was my (Em)last profession,
I did not take her (D)ring in flight
I (Am)stole away his (Em)wedding night

5. Just (Em)make it clear that’s (D)why I died..
Then (Am)wipe the tears all (Em)from her eyes..
I stretched before I (D)e'r was tried..
My (Am)life was purchased (Em)with his lies..

The (Em)gallows wait (D)
The (Am)gallows wait  (Bm)
The (Em)gallows wait (D)
The (Am)gallows wait...(D)-(Em)
