G
I write to you this letter
         C             G
You will get it in the mail
 
I hope that you're not tired
      C                   D
Of my letters sent from jail
        Am                C
I spent twenty years in prison
                      D
For a crime I did not do
    G           D
And noone do believe that
    C            G
I'm innocent but you
 
 
I never hurt nobody
    C                  G
And that's the truth I swear
 
Someone says they saw me on the scene
      C           D
But I wasn't even near
   Am          C
An officer was shot to death
              D
By machinegun fire
     G             D
It's almost twenty years ago
         C              G
And they still can me a liar
   Am
Oh this is a nightmare


 It really is
       D
I just hope down the line
 
That there is some justice
G
Help me God, if you are up there
  C
I really didn't shoot that guy, I swear
    Am
The judge and the jury
 
They didn't even look at me
  D
I had no lawyer and no defence, see
     G
They let 'em all feel the wrath of your power
  C
I pay it with my young life
                    Am
Cos they are cowards
                    D
Cos they are cowards
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/morten_abel/mr_innocent_crd.html ]
      G
So I write to you my darlin'
        C                G
So that you can bring it on
 
And prove to them my innocence
C          D
After I'm gone
Am          C
Only before God can I confess
        D
Without shame
  G                  D
A killer's out there in the street
    C             G
And I got all the blame

 
Can I trust you to see that these words
    C             G
Are written on my stone
 
Don't bother with my name
        C           D
Cos I'd rather be unknown
Am           C
Here lies Mr.Innocent
                D
He never shed a tear
    G                D
You wanted his young life
C              G
Now enjoy your dinner

  Am-D-G-C (Under hele partiet)

*Lalalalalala*

Am
Thank you and goodnight, people of the land
    D
The system failed for an innocent man
      G
I was 14, had not yet been with a woman
C
Now I'm 34 and I still haven't been with one
Am                   
To my mom and dad, I brought alot of pain
    D
And now they don't want me to carry their name
    G                                 C
Now I'm just a number, a number in chains

 I live my life in shame
