     D                                A               D
Your honor sir, I'm dying, that's the reason that I'm here 
    G               D             G             D
The cancer's got my body, I'll be dead within a year 
        G             D
I'll be dead within a year
D                                   A            D
Tell me more good lady, don't leave out a single word 
         G            D               G         D
For I'll come to my decision from the testimony heard
         G         D
From the testimony heard

   D                           A           D
My husband passed away no more than a year ago
          G             D              G             D
But every penny that he left me to the banker we did owe
       G             D
To the banker we did owe 

       D                           A           D
When I first was feelin' ill, they said I'd be okay 
           G                D                G        D
But they'd need to run some tests and take a simple X-ray
       G        D
Just a simple X-ray

 D                                       A                    D
Again and again they called me, for more tests they'd need to run 
         G             D                 G         D
And to exterminate the cancer with their radiation gun 
           G         D
With their radiation gun

      D                          A             D
But I never got no better as I'm standing here today 
         G                 D                G               D
And they left me with this statement that I can't afford to pay 
       G               D
That I can't afford to pay

     D                                  A                D
Well what about your jewellery and your lovely house and home?
          G               D             G                   D
Could you not have made a sacrifice, to step down from your throne?
   G                   D
To step down from your throne

       D                               A                  D
Sir, I never had the fancy things that you and yours have known
       G               D                G               D
And we never owned the shackled house I used to call my home
  G               D
I used to call my home

         D                               A                 D
Well I'm sorry for your trouble, and I'm sorry that you're ill
            G         D                   G              D
But it's my duty to uphold the law, an' uphold the law I will
  G              D
Uphold the law I will

         D                                     A                 D
For your failure to meet the judgement of this court and pay the fee
  G               D                    G         D
I sentence you to twelve months in the penitentiary
       G         D
In the penitentiary

        D                          A           D
In this system of justice, of opportunity, and grief
         G               D        G              D
It's one thing to make a living, another to be a thief
 G              D
Another to be a thief
