Roy Harper - Hangman (text piesne)



Last night I wasnt sleeping
I knew it was my last,
I'd just been lying thinking,
reliving all my past,
my familiy and friends have left,
my children are all lost
and now Im standing in the death cell
as the times of sands fall fast
my pour heart it is thumping
my head is filled to flood
to feel the rope around my neck
and know its there for good
I know that I am innocent
but no ones understood
and now Im standing on the gallows
to be murdered in cold blood
Chorus:
We are creatures of darkness,
killers of time
creatures of darkness
bodies in lime
Oh hangman, oh hangman
how sleepless is your bed
I cant believe my own ears
my heart is full of lead
that you'd apply and get the job,
of pulling off my head
and leave me kicking in the darkness
covering the walls with blood
Oh hangman, oh hangman
your working in the shade
oh creatures of the jungle,
whose message is displayed
in graphic tones of blood revenge
all down the civil blade
and your the creppy little monkey
who murders to be paid
In about six minutes time
Ill be thrown into the lime
by the screws who dug my grave
and never felt ashamed
who threw me in still breathing
and covered me in slime
and put me on a map in the governers office
a number with no name
We are creatures of darkness....
and true as I stand here
Id wished to be untied.
the repose lies clean at your throat
that my death might somehow be justified
theres no unconsecrated ground
in my heart or in my mind
I lived and died in a world full of snakes
and Im buried in a vicious lie
We are creatures of darkness
Thats it....
The chords are played mostly open with E shape barre chords for
the chorus, although you can play them open if you like.
I havent worked out the little riff at the beginning of the
song, but its just a Amin thing. I seem to remember seeing him play
it at the 7th position, but Im sure theres other ways of doing it.
Have fun
