Beyond The Last Mile Recorded by Ray Price Written by Rex Griffin
C C7 F I'm watching the clock tick the hours away G7 C They say that I must hang at the dawn of the day C7 F But why should I fear death for it's life anew G7 C For dying only takes me much nearer to you
C7 F You left me in anger to walk by the sea G7 C And when they found your body they blamed it on me C7 F But you know they were wrong dear so wait for a while G7 C For we shall be together beyond the last mile
C7 F The stars hide their face to make way for the sun G7 C And soon death it shall claim me and make us as one C7 F While others are walking the streets with a smile G7 C Then I know I'll be walking beyond the last mile
C7 F The chaplain is making his last plea to God G7 C Soon up the numbered steps to the scaffold I'll trod C7 F My footsteps won't falter I'll walk with a smile G7 C For I know you'll be waiting beyond the last mile
