Let Him Dangle - Elvis Costello (D. MacManus)

Bentley said to craig let him have it Chris
C                               B7
They still dont know today just what he meant by this
Craig fired the pistol but was to young to swing
        C                       B7
so the police to Bentley in the very next thing

           Em                 C              B7
Let him dangle let him dangle Do do do do do do do do do

Bently had surrended he was under arrest
when he gave Chris Craigs that fatal request
Craig shot sidney miles he took bentleys word
the prosecution claimed as they charged him with murder...

         G          D            Am7
Well its hard to imagine its the times that have changed
              G                                                D
when theres a murder in the kitchen that is brutal and strange
   G           D          Am7                        D
If killing anybody is a terrible crime why does this blood thirsty chorus
      B7                     Em                C              B7
 come round from time to time   Let him dangle  do do do do do  do do do do

 They siad Derek Bentley was easlily led
 well whats that to the women that sidney miles wed
 though guilty was the verdict and craig had shot him dead
 the gallows were for bentley and still she never said...

 Not many people thought that bentley would hang
 but the word never came the phone never rang
 outside wandsworth prison there was horror and hate
 as the hangman shook bentleys hand to calculate his weight....

 From a welfare state to society murder
 bring back the noose is always heard
 whenever thos swine are under attack
 but it wont make you even it wont bring him back...

Em     C  B7
