Testo have mercy on the criminal - elton john

Have you heard the dogs at night


Somewhere on the hill.

Chasing some poor criminal


And I guess they're out to kill.

Oh
there must be shackles
on his feet


And mother
in his eyes
stumbling through the devil-dark

With the hound pack in full cry.



Have mercy on the criminal


Who is running from the law


Are you blind to the

Winds of change?

Don't you hear him any more?



Praying Lord you gotta help me

/>
I am never gonna sin again.

Just take
these chains

From around my legs


Sweet Jesus I'll be your friend.



Now have you ever seen

The white teeth gleam


While you lie on a

Cold damp ground.

You're taking in the face of a rifle butt


While the wardens hold you down.

And you're never seen a friend in years


Oh
it turns your heart to stone.

You jump the walls


And the dogs run free


And the grave's gonna be your home
