BEYOND THE LAST MILE (Rex Griffin) Ernest Tubb 1962 Also recorded by: Rex Griffin; Ray Price. I'm watching the clock tick the hours away They say that I will hang at the dawn of the day But why should I fear death when it's life anew For dying only takes me much closer to you You left me in anger and walk by the sea And when they found your body they blamed it on me But you know they were wrong dear so wait for awhile Soon we'll be together Beyond The Last Mile Stars hide their face to make way for the sun Death it'll soon claim me and make us as one While others are walking the streets with a smile Then I will be walking Beyond The Last Mile INSTRUMENTALS The jury agrees I have taken your life The sentence that they gave me it cut like a knife But I'll face my Maker today with a smile I know that you'll be waiting Beyond The Last Mile The chaplain is making his last plea to God Soon the numbered steps to the scaffold I'll trod My footsteps won't falter I'll walk with a smile I know that you'll be waiting Beyond The Last Mile (Contributed by lylemalone - September 2005)
