Lyrics by Gary O'Keefe and Andrew Krolikowski

Here I stand, as I watch you ride away
Shadows cast from the gallows pole
Like a cross on the Lord's Day

....But the Governor's gonna call

And I'll be back to remove you from your earthly chains
I know what you've done weighs heavy on your heart
So I'll give you a head start.

....But the Governor's gonna call

And I never stole nor killed and I thought I believed in good will
I never understood but you taught me good,
We all got it in us to kill

....But the Governor's gonna call

Now I ain't yet formulated no plans nor schemes
But I know by the grace of God
You'll be dead 'fore I hang from these beams

....But the Governor's gonna call

I know where a tree falls a new one may grow
We're bound to fall down and out
But maybe something purer will sprout.

....But the Governor's gonna call
....the Governor's gonna call
....the Governor's gonna call
....the Governor's gonna call
....the Governor's gonna call
....the Governor's gonna call....
