[song]{t:Jamie's Victory Song}
{st: by Zen Galileo 2011}
{c: key of C, very slow 4/4}

Intro: C / walk down from C to Am (Cmaj9) throughout/ Am / walk down from Am to F (Am w/ G bass) throughout / F / G /G7 (repeat)


Well I have [C]been in chains[Cmaj9], [Am]chains for a [G bass]long, long [F]time [G]

And I have [C]bore them long[Cmaj9], so [Am]long,

and [G bass]now I'm [F]weary of life [G]

[F]  I thought a lot a [G]bout it, now I'm [C]sure that I'm [Cmaj9]gonna [Am]do it

[G bass] So when I [F]get a chance,

[G]I'm gonna kill myself[C] [Cmaj9] [Am] [G bass] [F] [G] [G7]




Now I [C]know that you're[Cmaj9] gonna [Am]try and [G bass]talk me [F]out of it [G]

And as a [C]friend[Cmaj9], it's the [Am]least I'd ex[G bass]pect from [F]you [G]

[F]  But I made up my mind [G], I guess

I'm  [C] just not[Cmaj9] the [Am]earthbound kind [G bass]

And when I [F]get a chance, [G]I'm gonna kill my [C]self




{sob}[F]  Now don't get me [G]wrong, it's not a [C]bout you

[F]  And it don't [G]mean that I don't [C]love you

[F]  You've been the best kind of [G]friend, but [C]every road[Cmaj9]

has its [Am]end

[G bass]And when I [F]get my chance, [G]I'm gonna call it quits[C] {eob}


[Cmaj9] [Am] [G bass] [F] [G] [G7]

And I've [C]thought a lot[Cmaj9] a [Am]bout [G bass]how I'll do [F] it [G]

And I [C]promise[Cmaj9] I won't [Am]make a mess for [F]you [G]

[F] But pills ain't [G]sure enough, and a [C]gun that just

[Cmaj9]ain't my [Am]style

So next [F]time I'm alone, [G]I'm gonna hang myself[C]


{sob}Now I have [F] been in pain, [G]pain for a long, long [C]time

And I have [F] been in hell, and [G]sometimes you could

[C]see it [Cmaj9]in my [Am]eyes

[G] [F]   I pray the Lord will under [G]stand,

I'm not a [C]coward [Cmaj9]or a [Am]thankless man[G bass]

It's just [F]all spelled out, [G]I'm gonna kill myself[C]  [Cmaj9] {eob}







[Am] [G bass]It's just [F]plain as day, [G]I'm gonna walk away[C]

[Cmaj9]Where this world[Am] won't find[G bass] me a [F]gain

It's O [G]K, just let me [C]slip away [Cmaj9]

[Am] My [G bass]friend it's too [F]late,

[G]There's nothing you could [C]say [Cmaj9] [Am] [G bass]

I'm not [F]sick or crazy,  just  [G]no more [G7]game to play



I'm not [C]faithless or [Cmaj9]lazy,

[Am]but say that [G bass]prayer for me[C] [Cmaj9]

I'm at [G bass]peace with it [F]now For the [C]first time

[Cmaj9]in the [Am]longest time[G bass] I'm at [F]peace, [G]I'm at peace

[C] [Cmaj9] [Am]



[G bass]Only God[F] can judge me now[G], I'm at peace [C] [Cmaj9] [Am]

I'm [G bass]in His arms[F] some how[G] I'm at peace[C] [Cmaj9] [Am] [G bass]

[F] I'm goin up [G] that dusty road[C] [Cmaj9] [Am] [G bass]

[F] to the [G]arms of my father.

[C] To the [Cmaj9]open [Am]arms of my father

And my father he's been waitin a long time for me



He's been lookin out at the horizon

And while I'm yet a long way off

he's gonna come running out to greet me

And fall on my neck weeping



And he'll bring with him the robe of a son

the crown of a Prince in His Kingdom

And my mother she'll be waiting on the balcony,

blowing a kiss to me saying, "Welcome home son"



And my bnrothers and sisters will all be there linin the walk to my palace

MMmmm It's a victory, for me, can't you see?

It's a victory I'm comin home

I'm comin home, I'm comin home. [/song]

Re: Jamie's Victory Song

I'm working on doing some youtube videos. But for now I think just to sit with the words of this song is powerful. Wrought from real pain.

Re: Jamie's Victory Song

This is heavy stuff Zen. I got to say you certainly think outside the box

Thick as two short planks
