THE BIG SLEEP
By: Murder By Death
from the album In Bocca Al Lupo


       Cm         Fm
At the end of the road
         A#        Cm
He calls everyone home
        Cm           Fm
And the fire will consume us
         G             
Striking through to the bone

       Cm         Fm
At the end of the road 
         A#               Cm
you will sleep, hear him call
       Cm            Fm 
as the congregations crumble 
        G           Cm
and the chapels will fall

        Fm            A#
And the taste on your tongue, 
        Cm
well it comes yeah it comes
                             G
With the bittersweet pang of remorse and pain

         Fm          A#
Till the judgment is made
    Cm
The prosecution’s won

The gavel has fallen
    G         Cm
And justice is done


Interlude:
Cm Fm A# Cm Fm G

Cm            Fm
The courtroom clears
         A#            Cm
I’m left alone on the bench
Cm                   Fm
My wife and children gone
  G
Along with the defense
    Fm               A#          Cm
The bailiff leads me back to my cell
         Cm        G             Cm
Like the riverman, ferrying me to Hell

        Fm         A#    
I can’t blame ‘em, no
   Cm            
To hate me for what I’ve done
            Fm                A#
I hear them whispering in the hall
                 Cm
“you’ll live and die by the gun”
    Fm          A#            Cm 
All I can do is sit here and pray
        Cm          G       Cm
I’ll be forgiven on judgment day

        Fm          A#
Tell my wife in our yard
       Cm
Buried underneath the pine
          Fm              A#
There's a shoebox full of money 
           Cm
of which I never earned a dime
Fm        G
Use it to start over, 
    Cm
the way things should have been
            G
Live honest, and love again

        Fm            G      Cm
Tell my wife, tell my kids, I never meant for this to happen

Interlude:
Cm Fm G A# Cm G   end on Cm

When they flip the switch,
please do not stay
I couldn't bear for you
to remember me this way
