"I Know No Pardon"


    G                   Am                  G

G                                  Am
Maria please don't leave me now, I need ya
     D               C             G
I'ma wanted, there's nowhere I can go
My up's turned down, my luck's spun round and left me
     D                        C                  G
no I didn't see it comin, but oh I'ma watchin it go
so I chose the company of those who don't need protection
D                C                 G
took a new name, mostly to fool my friends
swore off the days when I had to count on others
      D                       C                        G
cause courtin the knife means countin your days to the end
I made enemies of those Who might defend me
D                  C               G
Partnered with men liable to do me in
snake'n my way past deals will make you wonder
D                          C                   G
what kind of heaven are these killers dying to win?

      D                   G
did I lose my way? or did I just play
the cards the way the dealer gave em to me?
  D                     Em
I try not to regret the things that I've done, yet
  D       Am     Bm   C       D      Am      Bm      Am
I know no pardon pity for the guilty

some games you play win, well you lose
sometimes you're dealt but you don't get to choose
some guns get drawn but you don't need to use them
some tried that before their troubles began
oh but I, oh but I, I seemed to have it all
I had the women and the Lord by my side
I climbed so high the sky dropped down to teach me
how to lay low and keep my ear to the ground

I'll get caught one day, least that's what they say
red hands are but a killers way of trying
dont' ask me to confess, my peace will come unless
confessin's just an honest way of lying
my nerves are tangled and are cursed with the fear of knowing
no allibis or ties left to keep me goin'

It alternates between the progressions:
G Am D C
G C Am D

These kind of web sites waste my time because of people like you. Thank you for murdering the little faith left I had in people's tabs.

I agree your way alternate way also sounds good, but my original tab works alright, certainly not so horrible as to crush your dreams like that. The internet makes people so snarky... its posts like yours that murder what little faith i have in worthwhile discussions with strangers online.

The verses are as follows:
G Am D7 C
G C Am C
G C D7 C
G C Am C

Also, the lead out of the chorus ("I know no pardon pity for the guilty") is not nearly that complicated. It simply stays on the D as the lead descends D C B A
