Judy Collins - Tim Evans


CAPO: 1st Fret



[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]

Tim Evans was a prisoner
    G             A
Within his prison cell
    Em
And those who read about his crime
     G                  A
They damned his soul to hell
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 2]

For the murderer of his own dear wife
        G              A
And the killing of his child
    Em
The jury found him guilty
        G                A
And the hanging judge he smiled
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 3]

Tim Evans pleaded innocent
    G               A
And swore by him on high
   Em
He never killed his own dear wife
   G                   A
Or caused his child to die
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"



[Verse 4]

They moved him out at 6 o'clock
       G             A
To his final flowery dell
    Em
And day and night two guards were there
    G              A
And never left his cell
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 5]

Sometimes they played cards with him
G           A
Solo and Pontoon
   Em
To stop him brooding on the ropes
     G             A
That was to be his doom
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 6]

The Governor came in one day
         G               A
With the chaplain by his side
      Em
Said, your appeal has been turned down
   G                A
Prepare yourself to die
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 7]

Tim Evans walked in the prison yard
    G               A
The guards walked behind
   Em
He saw the sky above the wall
    G                A
And knew no peace of mind
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 8]

They fit the rope around his neck
G                 A
Buckle behind his ear
    Em
The prison bell was tolling
        G             A
But Tim Evans did not hear
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 9]

A thousand men were cursing
    G              A
And banging on the doors
        Em
But Tim Evans could not hear them
       G            A
He was deaf for evermore
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"


[Verse 10]

They sent Tim Evans to the drop
      G               A
For a crime he didn't do
     Em
Twas Christy was the murderer
    G              A
The judge and jury too
            Em        D            Em
Saying, "Go down, you murderer, go down"
