Capo 4

        Em
 I was lost in the dark,
          Am             Em
 And the fear was in my heart,
       D                           Em
 All around me the forest and the rain,
                 Em                 Am
 Then with the flash of a light, I saw it in the night,
    D                                  Em
 I must be getting near Saint Peter's Gate!
 
         Em                 
 When I went through the door, 
          Am             Em
 He was standing in the hall,
    D                                 Em
 An old man with a beard of shining white,
                Em                          Am
 He said "I've been expecting you, let me show you to your room",
         D                            Em
 And he took me all the way by candlelight,

             D                  A
 And lying there on the bed, a book, black & red,
     C                                B7sus4 B7
 My name was written on the front in gold,
            Em                        Am
 And when I opened it up, there were pictures of my life,
        D                               Em
 And a voice began to call from down below,

Em D C                   
      Nobody will get through, 
     G                  D                             Em E
      Nobody, not even you, can escape the Judgement Day,
     C                     G
      Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there,
       Am                           Em B7                 Em Am Em D Em
      For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate,

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

              D                       A
 But in that room on the right, a dictator in life,
             C                                B7sus4 B7
 We've been waiting for him here, as you can tell,
     Em       
 For all the blood he's spilled,
         Am
 And for all the ones he's killed,
        D                       Em
 We condemn him to eternity in hell,

Em D C                   
      Nobody will get through, 
     G                  D                             Em E
      Nobody, not even you, can escape the Judgement Day,
     C                     G
      Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there,
       Am                           Em B7                 Em Am Em D Em
      For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate,

        Em
 I woke up with the dawn, 
            Am            Em
 There was someone in my room,
    D                            Em
 A woman, like an angel all in white,
               Em                              Am
 And then she told me "You must run, for your time has yet to come,
     D                             Em
 Go now, before they change their minds",

               D               A
 And from the window I saw a thousand or more,
   C                             B7sus4 B7
 Bringing that dictator to his knees,
           Em
 And his cries broke the sound,
        Am
 Of my footsteps on the ground,
       D                             Em
 As I made it to the safety of the trees,

Em D C                   
      Nobody will get through, 
     G                  D                             Em E
      Nobody, not even you, can escape the Judgement Day,
     C                     G
      Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there,
       Am                           Em B7                 Em Am Em D A
      For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate,

 A D C                   
      Nobody will get through, 
     G                  D                             Em E
      Nobody, not even you, can escape the Judgement Day,
     C                     G
      Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there,
       Am                           Em B7                 Em Am Em D C                   Em
      For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate,            Saint Peter's Gate,
