Billy Talent - The Dead Can't Testify: chords

        Gm
Let the rain fall down, let it fall to the ground
         D
Let the rain fall down to the ground
        D7
And the birds don't sing, no they don't make a sound
            Gm
When you're six feet underground
          Gm
Well they cast me out when the word spread around
        D
That I never sang in the church
        D7
And it took one night for the town to decide
      Gm
I'm afflicted by the curse

        D#                                      D
And the rain falls down let it fall to the ground
        D#                                        D
And the birds don't sing no they don't make a sound
      D#
So I look to the sky
         F#
tell me why tell me why
    Gm       F/A    A#
Do they all get to live
       Cm      D
and I have to die?

So they marched me down to the center of town
With their pitchforks high in the air
I was chained and bound with a blindfold around
So the judge wouldn’t catch my stare
And they hung my soul from the gallows pole
But the witch they never found
So to those who don’t fit society’s mold
Learn to swim or you will drown

And the rain falls down, let it fall to the ground
And the birds don’t sing, no, they don’t make a sound
So I look to the sky,
tell me why, tell me why
Do they all get to live,
and I have to die?

Chorus:
        A#
And the angels sing
         F
let it shine let it shine
        Cm
Dry the teardrops
        Gm
from my eyes
        A#
And the bells will ring when
      F
the blind lead the blind
           Cm              Gm
Cause the dead can't testify
      A#
And because I can't
         F
take an eye for an eye
       D#
In the afterlife I'll
 Gm                 D
haunt you till you die!

And the rain falls down, let it fall to the ground
(Let teardrops hit the ground!)
And the birds don’t sing, no, they don’t make a sound
(When you’re six feet underground!)
So I look to the sky,
tell me why, tell me why
Do they all get to live,
and I have to die?
