Gary Gilmore's Eyes

Trans by:  Mr. C5 - Dave Allen

First Verse
Em
I’m lying in a hospital
       D
I’m pinned against the bed
      C
A stethoscope upon my heart
    Bm
A hand against my head
              Em
They’re peeling off the bandages
        D
I’m wincing in the light
        C
The nurse is looking anxious
        D
And she´s quivering in fright
Chorus


Em
I´m looking through

G       A              C – x 3
Gary Gilmore’s eyes
Em
I´m looking through
         C               D
Gary Gilmore’s eyes 
Em   C  D  x  3 


(As First Verse)
The doctors are avoiding me
My vision is confused
I listen to my earphones
And I catch the evening news
A murderer’s been killed
And he donates his sight to science
I’m locked into a private ward
I realise that I must be


(As first chorus)
Looking through
Gary Gilmore’s eyes


(As per first chorus)
I smash the light in anger
Push my bed against the door
I close my lids across the eyes
And wish to see no more
The eye receives the messages
And sends them to the brain
No guarantee the stimuli
Must be perceived the same


(As per chorus)
When looking
through Gary Gilmore’s eyes


Em                            C          D
Gary don’t need his eyes to see
Em                                 C         D          Em      
Gary and his eyes have parted company
