25 Minutes To Go (Cash Johnny)

G Well, they're building the gallows outside my cell D and I've got 25 minutes to go. And the whole town's waitin just to hear me yell, G I've got 24 minutes to go. Well, they gave me some beans for my last meal with 23 minutes to go, but nobody asked me how I feel, I've got 22 minutes to go. Well, I sent for the governor and the whole darn bunch with 21 minutes to go, and I called up the mayor but he's out to lunch, I got 20 more minutes to go. Then the sheriff said boy, I'm gonna watch you die with 19 minutes to go, soI laughed in his face and I spit in his eye with 18 minutes to go. E Now here comes the preacher for to save my soul B with 13 minutes to go, and he's talkin bout burnin but I'm so cold, E 12 more minutes to go. Well, they're testin the trap and it chills my spine, B 11 more minutes go, and the trap and the rope, they work just fine, E 10 more minutes to go. Well, I'm waitin for the pardon that'll set me free B with 9 more minutes to go, but this ain't the movies, so forget about me, E 8 more minutes to go. With my feet on the trap and my head in the noose, 5 more minutes to go. Won't somebody come and cut me loose? 4 more minutes to go. I can see the mountain I can see the sky, 3 more minutes to go, and it's too darn pretty for a man to die, 2 more minutes to go. I can see the buzzards, I can hear the crows, D 1 more minute to go, and now I'm swingin and here I gooooo...
