[Verse 1]
Em          Em7      Dsus2                Cmaj7                   Cadd9
   He knows well his...    wicked ways, a...   course of bitter - ness,
Em                Em7    Dsus2                    Cmaj7                Cadd9
   A grudge held from his... childhood days, as if...life had loved him less,
Am                  Am6                   Am7                     D
   Reading down his... list of names, he...   ticks them, one by one,
Fm                      Gm         Ab                  Bb
   He points the barrel at the sky,   firing shots off... at the sun,

  I am the wisdom, listen to me sing!


[Verse 2]
Em           Em7     Dus2                      Cmaj7             Cadd9
   He carves out the...  victims names, in the wooden butt of the... gun,
Em               Em7   Dsus2                   Cmaj7              Cadd9
   He leans well back a -  gainst the tree, he knows his kingdoms come,
      Am                      Am6               Am7                  D
He'll... breath a sigh, self -   satisfied, the... work is in good hands,
Fm                          Gm             Ab                  Bb
   He shoots the coins in - to the air, and...follows where the...money lands,

[Verse 3]
Em            Em7    Dsus2                    Cmaj7         Cadd9
    He pauses at the...     city's edge, of hellfire and of stone,
Em             Em7    Dsus2                         Cmaj7              Cadd9
    He summons up the...   devil there, to give him...   courage of his own,
      Am                  Am6                    Am7                    D
He'll... free the sinners...  of deceit, they'll...  hear his name and run,
Fm                     Gm          Ab                     Bb
    His justice is his own reward,     measured out be - neath the sun!

It is perfect. Amazing work.

A couple of things I noticed on coming back to it - the D in the verses should probably be a D7.

Also the lyric 'a course of bitterness' should be 'are cause of bitterness'.

Cheers again for the great transcription.
