LT 24 The Gallows 
                          Unknown


It stands alone against the sky,
Where sewers flow and seabirds fly,
Dark and foreboding tree 
Filch a purse it waits for me.

The Gallows wait, against the sky
The Gallows wait, where seabirds fly
The Gallows wait, foreboding tree
The Gallows wait, it waits for me.

All alone sway with the wind,
Pray itís not for you my friend
A notice to that I have sinned,
Twas not meant to be my end.

The Gallows wait, with the wind
The Gallows wait, for you my friend
The Gallows wait, for I have sinned
The Gallows wait, twill be my end

But I will not abandon hope,
Yet avoid the sturdy rope,
While you dance outside my cell,
Think that I will go to Hell.

The Gallows wait, abandon hope
The Gallows wait, a sturdy rope
The Gallows wait, outside my cell
The Gallows wait, Iíll go to Hell

Upon these walls a true confession,
Dealing towards my last profession,
Did not take a ring in flight
Stole away his wedding night.

Just make it clear thatís why I died.
Then wipe the tears from her eyes.
I stretched before I ere was tried.
My life was purchased with his lies,

The Gallows wait
The Gallows wait 
The Gallows wait 
The Gallows wait 
The Gallows wait
