25 Minutes to Go Lyrics

(Shel Silverstein)
© '62 Hollis Music, BMI

Well they're buildin' a gallows outside my cell I've got 25 minutes to go
And the whole town's waitin' just to hear me yell I got 24 minutes to go
Well they gave me some beans for my last meal I got 23 minutes to go
But nobody ask me how I feel I got 22 minutes to go
Well I sent for the Governor and the whole darned bunch with 21 minutes to go
And I sent for the Mayor but he's out to lunch I got 20 more minutes to go
Then the sheriff said boy I'm gonna watch you die got 19 minutes to go
So I laughed in his face and I spit in his eye got 18 minutes to go
Now here comes the preacher for to save my soul with 13 minutes to go
And he's talking bout burning but I'm so cold I got 12 more minutes to go
Now they're testin' a trap and it chills my spine with 11 more minutes to go
And the trap and the rope oh they work just fine got 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 for real so forget about me got 8 more minutes to go
With my feet on the trap and my head in the noose got 5 more minutes to go
Won't somebody come and cut me loose got 4 more minutes to go
I can see the mountains I can see the sky 3 more minutes to go
And it's too darned pretty for a man over die I got 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
