INTRO:
Dsus2 Dm9 Em7/D Dm9 (2x) 

Dsus2      Dm9      Em7/D           Dm9 
There's a blind man in the witness stand
Dsus2      Dm9      Em7/D           Dm9
With three young men's lives in his hands
Dsus2      Dm9          Em7/D        Dm9
There's a poor boy who stood at the scene
Dsus2      Dm9           Em7/D             Dm9
Who'll be haunted by the dirty things he's seen

Dsus2  Dm9  Em7/D  Dm9


Dsus2   Dm9          Em7/D          Dm9
It's a shame all the jury knew the accused
Dsus2            Dm9          Em7/D              Dm9
'Cos now they're running free when they left her cold and bruised
Dsus2      Dm9          Em7/D             Dm9
There's a chalked white line stained with blood
Dsus2 Dm9          Em7/D        Dm9
Sorry Mr. Jones, we did all we could

A                       C                           C*           Fmaj7
There's a whole lot of people out there and they're all running free
A                   C                   C*                   Fmaj7   
Some will kill and some will steal the last breath that you breathe 
     Dsus2 Dm9 Em7/D Dm9
From you 
     Dsus2 Dm9 Em7/D Dm9
From you


Dsus2   Dm9       Em7/D          Dm9
So Mr. Jones in a cruel twist of fate
Dsus2      Dm9         Em7/D        Dm9
Found the perpetrators in a drunken haze
Dsus2      Dm9         Em7/D             Dm9
Gave them retribution for their twisted ways
Dsus2      Dm9          Em7/D            Dm9
Now he's going down for years instead of days



A                       C                           C*           Fmaj7
There's a whole lot of people out there and they're all running free
A                   C                   C*                   Fmaj7   
Some will kill and some will steal the last breath that you breathe 
     Dsus2 Dm9 Em7/D Dm9
From you 
     Dsus2 Dm9 Em7/D Dm9
From you
     Dsus2
From you...

if the song is in DADGBE (which I have seen him tune to live) then your chords are definitely not accurate (the fingerings anyway). definitely use the low E string since it's the only detuned string.
