 D
T’was in the early evenin’

Near the presence of the moon

You told me you would meet me here

Well now is not too soon
  G
This dagger twisting in my back
      D
Tells me I never should
      G
Have trusted everything to fall
      F             A
From beggar to the fool
  D
I see your face like every race

A serpent with two arms

Devouring me while rains the sun

With dreams in foreign lands
     G
This cold and dark tormented hell
    D
Is all I’ll ever know
    G
So when you get to heaven
         F            A
May the devil be the judge

(with chorus riff)
With another bag of bricks

D
I scratch your name across these walls

And with my blood turns red

Then drips upon my killing floor

Where now I call my bed
     G
No precious light to harbor
       D
Like so many here before
     G  
And every drop of life you shed
     F                   A
Now breathes a thousand more

(with chorus riff)
With another bag of bricks

 A
Temper filled with blindness

Leads this lost and lonely man

Dragged around your whipping tree

A scourge you can’t command
  D
So deafen me with silence

Drown me with your roar

Scowl me with your hollow eyes

Still burnin’ to the core
    G
No door will go unanswered
        D
Like so many closed before
    G
No vagabond to knock upon
     D
This tired and beatin’ war
      G
When all return to exile
 D
Free from all once bound
  G
Decline and brawl old parasites
     F                 A
The truth will yet be found

(with chorus riff)
With another bag of bricks

instrumental interlude:
 quickly:
D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G
D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G

*Then D over the accordion solo*

   N.C.
This cold and dark tormented hell

Is all I’ll ever know

So when you get to heaven

May the devil be the judge


A
Temper filled with blindness

Leads this lost and lonely man

Dragged around your whipping tree

A scourge you can’t command
  D
So deafen me with silence

Drown me with your roar

Scowl me with your hollow eyes

Still burnin’ to the core
    G
No door will go unanswered
        D
Like so many closed before
    G
No vagabond to knock upon
     D
This tired and beatin’ war
      G
When all return to exile
 D
Free from all once bound
  G
Decline and brawl old parasites
     F                 A
The truth will yet be found

(with chorus riff x3)
With another bag of bricks

instrumental outro:
 quickly:
D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G

D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G


NOTE:

The F to A move at the end of each verse sounds
much better when A is played barred, rather than
in the open position.  Also the reoccurring D may
sound better as a D5, though it is definitely not
a Dm.

and sometimes at the end of certain verse lines,
the violin/accordion slide this little bit in:

e|-----2-3-2h3p2--------------|
B|---------------4-3----------|
G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

And for any mandolin or violin players,
those few riffs look like this:
             
e|----------2-3-5-3-2----------2-3-5---------2-3-5-3-2----------------|
A|--5-5-5-5-----------5-5-5-5--------5-5-5-5-----------5-5-5-5-3-3-5--|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    and
                                                                                                          
e|--2-3-2h3p2-----------|
A|-------------6-5------|
D|----------------------|
G|----------------------|

typo in the intro, the ending is a D, not D# as i have written.
it ends like
|------|
|-4-3~-|
|------|
|------|
|------|
|------|

and i have a chord error on the repeated verse. rather than D/G/D/G, it's D/A/D/A i believe, but i think the end is right.
i think this is how it's played:

A
Temper filled with blindness

Leads this lost and lonely man

Dragged around your whipping tree

A scourge you can’t command
D
So deafen me with silence

Drown me with your roar

Scowl me with your hollow eyes

Still burnin’ to the core
A
No door will go unanswered
D
Like so many closed before
A
No vagabond to knock upon
D
This tired and beatin’ war
G
When all return to exile
D
Free from all once bound
G
Decline and brawl old parasites
F A
The truth will yet be found

***

sorry about the errors.
