Gallows Lyrics


Shelby Merry Gallows

I spent a year out in the desert, I spent a year out in the sea
I spend my nights under the stars just dreaming of sleep
I still question where I've been
I don't know where I will go
I just look up to the skies like there's a sign I didn't see, I didn't know
Like there's a sign I didn't know
Lord can you bring me back home

I know I've lived a wicked life, and I will never change my ways
And unapologetic runaway until it's my last day
Why is it so easy to light a match and watch?
We were made of dried up timber
We were made to turn to dust

(Chorus)
Take me on down
At the gallows it was mercy I had found

So I went back to my home and I burned it to the ground
An angel sat beside of me, we both watched it all fall down
"I'm a loner of a lover, I'm a lover of my ways
So if you're here to take me back, there ain't nothing left to save."

(Chorus)
Burned it all down
At the gallows it was mercy I had found
Take me on down
At the gallows it was mercy I had found

I made it to the edge, there was nothing left to see
I lit one last cigarette, the angel sat beside of me
I said, "I know you've got your job."
He said, "The grace that I have brung is that your death is gonna save you from the things you're running from."

(End chorus)
Take me on down
At the gallows it was mercy I had found
Take me on down
At the gallows it was mercy I had found
At the gallows it was mercy I had found
