25 Minutes To Go

Well they're building a gallows outside my cell
I've got 25 minutes to go
And the whole town's waitin' just to hear me yell
I've got 24 minutes to go
Well they gave me some beans for my last meal
I've got 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 dern bunch
with 21 minutes to go
And I called up the mayor but he's out to lunch
I've got 20 more minutes to go
Then the sheriff said boy I gonna watch you die
got 19 minutes to go
So I laughed in his face and I spit in his eye
with 18 minutes to go
Now hear comes the preacher for to save my soul
with 13 minutes to go
And he's talking bout' burnin' but I'm so cold
12 more minutes to go
Now they're testin' the trap and it chills my spine
11 more minutes to go
And the trap and the rope aw they work just fine
10 more minutes to go
Well I'm waitin' for the pardon that'll set me free
with 9 more minutes to go
But this is ain't the movies so forget about me
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
with 4 more minutes to go
I can see the mountains I can see the skies
with 3 more minutes to go
And it's too dern pretty for a man that don't wanna die
2 more minutes to go
I can see the buzzards I can hear the crows
1 more minute to go
And now I'm swingin' and here I go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Não era por mero acaso que Cash vestia sempre de negro...

Feliz Natal!
