Dave Gunning - Before The Morning Sun


CAPO: 2nd Fret


 
INTRO: Am

                               F                 C  G
In the valley by the river, we had a little land
                                    F
It wasn't much to speak of, what we had was by our hands
        Am                             F              C  
But the banker took it from us, at the end of two dry years
     E7                  Am        E7               Am
Left nothing but the dust, watered by my mother's tears


                       F                   C  
With all the rage that burned inside me, I rode into that town
    G                         Am
And with my father's rifle, I shot that banker down
         F                           C  
And this isn't like the story books, there'll be no reprieve
          G                              Am
When they take me out before the morning sun


                                     F                 C  
The judge was looking at me, when he brought the gavel down
   G                           F
It echoed off the pillars, "By law son you are bound"
       Am                     F              C  
Then behind those iron bars, alone to face myself
     E7                      Am              E7                Am
With the building of the scaffold, outside my quiet prison cell 


      F                                C  
I can hear the hammers pounding, I can feel my blood awaken
     G                                          Am
To a thousand freight trains running through my mind
     F                           C  
This isn't like the story books, there'll be no reprieve 
          G                              Am
When they take me out before the morning sun


                            F                    C  
My father said, "Son, we'll love you 'til the end"
   G                                      F
My mother turned and hid her face, as the preacher man stepped in
          Am                                F                  C  
He said, "Know that god will judge you, and know that you have sinned."
         E7               Am    E7                    Am
The long shadow of the gallows, spanned my prison cell
          E7                      Am        E                   Am   Em7
It made a cross upon the preacher's back, a hardened man's farewell


      F                                      C  
I can hear the footsteps coming now, they're right outside my door
       G                                      Dm
With a single church bell, ringing out of time
     F                               C  
This isn't like the story books, and now the hour has come 
          G           E7                 Am
When they take me out before the morning sun


        F                                     C  
With my calloused hands behind me, like those fields in my memory 
    E7                               G   Dm
I'm staring straight, into a clear hori--zon
     F                                       C  
This isn't like the story books, and now the moment's come and gone
     G                               Am
They hang me out to face the morning sun
     E7                              Am
They hang me out before the morning sun


OUTRO: G F                 C     G  E7  Am
         Oooooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
