I`vE gotta get a message to you (Listen to midi)


               G                                          Am

1. The preacher taunted me and he smiled,

                D                                                      G

    said, "Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile.


    Now for once in your life you're alone,

                  D                                         E

    but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone."


               A                                  Bm          D - E        A

I've just gotta get a message to you, hold on,   hold on.

                                                          Bm              D - E       A - D

One more hour and my life will be through, hold on,   hold on.


  G                                Am

2.   I told him I'm in no hurry,

            D                                           G

    but if I broke her heart, won't you tell her I'm sorry.


    And for once in my life I'm alone,

                  D                                       E

    and I've got to let her know just in time before I go.  + CHORUS


               G                                 Am

3. Well I laughed but that didn't work,

                 D                                            G

    and it's only her love that keeps me wearing this hurt.


    Now I'm crying, but deep down inside,

              D                               E

    well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die.


+ CHORUS 2 x + fade
