Jason Boland
False Accuser's Lament
Rancho Alto - 2011

==================
Tabbed by: n3x1s
==================

Standard Tuning


G
I said I'd seen the killin
      Am
Could identify the villain
C          D                      G       D
Shot a man beneath the town hall glow
G
I was one of few
     Am
The jury never knew
C                  D
about to line our pockets
         C        D       G
with the bankers jealous gold

G
He said his lovin woman sinned
    Am
let alone with a friend
C                  D                  G       D
he couldnt have his childrens mother shamed
G
I saw the shooter run
Am
coulda been anyone
            C          D
but for the price of a new plow
   C     D       G         G7
a local man was framed



Chorus:
C                             G
Now the nightly terror is the fortune to be paid
  D                        C             D
I hear the guilty gavel, I see his body swing
G             G7
Father please forgive me
           C           Am
for I've falsely testified
            G            D            G
They had me swear upon a bible and I lied



G
I never strayed before
        Am
but the pain of being poor
C             D              G      D
Lord what the hell came over me
G
This aint who momma raised
        Am
another dollar fearing slave
       C                  D                 
But the thought of losing all our land
    C    D       G       G7
was blinding you see


Chorus


    G
The seeds had all been sown
         Am
Soon The crops were nearly grown
        C                D                    G         DDsus4D
But the rain let up, the ground turned hard as nails
    G
The banker took my home
    Am
now I'm in these hills alone
        C                D
oh from time to time i see his wife
     C    D      G      G7
in a long black veil

Chorus

   G                G7
Oh Father please forgive me
       C            Am
For I falsely testified
            G            D           G
They had me swear upon a bible and I lied

sounds good, I think the ??? is floor

???= Glow
-dhud1991 | 10/5/2011
Felon = Villain otherwise looks good, thanks!
-bowieknife4570 | 10/25/2011
The ??? I think is glow. Also listen to Johnny Cash's "Long Black Veil" cause it sounds to me like Boland wrote this as a sequel.
-robbietgt | 11/20/2011
It is glow. If you watch him on America songwriter.com he plays it solo. Easier to hear him there.

Also, I believe it is "Now the nightly terror is the fortune to be paid."
