Jail Burned Down-crd  Mike McClure

[G]The jail burned do[D]wn around him and [G]he walked away
[C]he left the judge and jury with [G]nothing to say
[C]yes sire[D]e [G]Bob, it was a clear cut act of God[Em]
[C]and the jail bur[D]ned down him[G] and he walked away
[G]Now the DA, was sure he p[C]led his case
[G]till he was staring straight [D]into the face of fate
[G]there ain't much you [C]can do, when the force is not with you
[G]and your staring str[D]aight into [G]the face of fate
[C]Anything c[G]an happ[C]en, on any particular da[D]y
[C]One day we'll all sing hallelujah[G] [Em]
[C]when the jail burns down around us an[D]d we walk away[G]
[G]A blind man with a tin cup saw it all[C]
[G]he felt the heat and moved away from the wall[D]
[G]threw his hands up high and he sang "I sa[C]w the light"
[G]and the jail burned down around him an[D]d he watched it fall[G]
