I'm watching the clock tick the hours away
They say that I will hang at the dawn of the day
But why should I fear death when it's life anew
For dying only takes me much closer to you
You left me in anger and walk by the sea
And when they found your body they blamed it on me
But you know they were wrong dear so wait for awhile
Soon we'll be together beyond the last mile
Stars hide their face to make way for the sun
Death it'll soon claim me and make us as one
While others are walking the streets with a smile
Then I will be walking beyond the last mile
[ steel ]
The jury agreed I have taken your life
The sentence that they gave me it cut like a knife
But I'll face my Maker today with a smile
I know that you'll be waiting beyond the last mile
The chaplain is making his last plea to God
Soon the numbered steps to the scaffold I'll trod
My footsteps won't falter I'll walk with a smile
I know that you'll be waiting beyond the last mile
