        Abm   
I was lost in the dark,
        Abm/Ab              Abm   
And the fear____ was in my heart,
      F#                          E
All around me the forest and the rain,
               Abm              C#m/Ab
Then with the flash of a light, I saw___ it in the night,
    F#                                  Abm
I must be getting near - Saint Peter's Gate!

       Abm                            C#m            Abm
When I went through the door, he was standing in the hall,
   F#7                              Abm
An old man with a beard of shining white,
                                          C#m
He said "I've been expecting you, let me show you to your room",
        F#7                        Abm
And he took me all the way by candlelight,
           F#7                C#
And lying there on the bed, a book, black & red,
     E                             Eb7sus4
My name was written on the front in gold,
Eb7        Abm                       C#m
And when I opened it up, there were pictures of my life,
       F#7                           Abm - F#
And a voice began to call from down below;

E                 B
Nobody will get through, nobody,
         F#                            Abm - Ab/Eb  
Not even you, can escape the judgement day,
E                     B                         
Nobody will be spared, heaven is only there,
C#m                          Eb7sus4 Eb7                 Abm C#m Abm F# Abm
For the ones who satisfy them at ________- Saint Peter's Gate.

"Come with me" said that old man, as he took me by the hand
"There is someone here that you have seen before,
In this room on the left, a man who did his best,
To bring joy and happiness to one and all;

But in that room on the right, a dictator in life,
We've been waiting for him here,as you can tell,
For all the blood he's spilled,
And for all the ones he's killed,
We condemn him to eternity in hell;

Nobody will get through, Nobody,
Not even you, can escape the Judgement Day,
Nobody will be spared,Heaven is only there,
For the ones who satisfy them at - Saint Peter's Gate.
                                     C#m         Abm
I woke up with the dawn, there was someone in my room,
  F#7                         Abm
A woman, like an angel all in white,
                                             C#m
And then she told me "You must run, for your time has yet to come,
   F#7                           Abm
Go now, before they change their minds",

             F#7
And from the window I saw,
    C#m 
A thousand or more,
  E                            Eb7
Bringing that dictator to his knees,
         Abm
And his cries broke the sound,
       C#m
Of my footsteps on the ground,
      F#7                           Abm
As I made it to the safety of the trees:

Nobody will get through,
Nobody not even you,
Can escape the judgement day,
Nobody will be spared,
Heaven is only there,
For the ones who satisfy them at...
Saint Peters Gate.

Nobody will get through,
Nobody not even you,
Can escape the judgement day,
Nobody will be spared,
Heaven is only there,
For the ones who satisfy them at,
St Peters Gate.
