Hallowed Be Thy Name  Iron Maiden

I'm wait[Em]ing in my cold cell[C], when the bell beg[D]ins to chime.
[Em] Reflecting on my [C]past life and it do[D]esn't have much time[Em].
[C]'Cause at 5 o'clock they [D]take me to the Gallows [Em]pole,
[C]The sands of time [D]for me are running [Em]low.
[Em]When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
[G]I [C]take a look through the bars at the last sights,
[A]Of[D] a world that has gone very wrong for me. [B] [E] [B] [C]
[Em]Can it be that there's some sort of error.
[G]Ha[C]rd to stop the surmounting terror.
[A]Is[D] it really the end, not some crazy dream?[B] [E] [B] [C]
( Tab from: )
[Em]Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
[C]It's not so easy to stop from screaming,
[D]But words escape me when i try to speak.[B] [E] [B] [C]
[Em]Tears flow but why am I crying,
[C]After all I'm not afraid of dying.
[D]Don't I believe that there never is an end.[B] [E] [B] [C]
[Em]As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
[C]Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
[D]If there's a God then why has he let me go?[B] [E] [B] [C]
[Em]As I walk all my life drifts before me,
[C]Though the end is near I'm still not sorry.
[D]Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away.[B] [E] [B] [C]
[Em]Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
[C]Don't worry now that I have gone.
[D]I've gone beyond to see the truth.
[Em]When you know that your time is close at hand.
[C]Maybe then you'll begin to understand,
[D]Life down here is just a strangeillusion [B] [E] [B] [C] [Em] [Bm] [C]
[B]Yea[Em]h, Y[A]eah[D], Y[G]eah[C]...[A] Ha[D]llowed Be Thy Name
