Intro: G F C

       G
In the timbers of Fennario,
    Bb                 F
The wolves are running 'round.
    F
The winter was so hard and cold,
                          G
Froze ten feet 'neath the ground.


             F      G
Don't murder me,
         C          C  C   F
I beg of you, don't murder me.
G   F                C
Please, don't murder me.


  G
I sat down to my supper,
 Bb                       F
'Twas a bottle of red whisky.
  F
I said my prayers and went to bed,
           C         C   C     Am
That's the last they saw of    me.


             G      F
Don't murder me,
         C          C  C   F 
I beg of you, don't murder me.
G   F                C     C C  
Please, don't murder me.


C    Am           G
When I awoke, the Dire Wolf,
    C       Bb        F
Six hundred pounds of sin,
F
Was grinning at my window,
                        G
All I said was "Come on in".


             F      G
Don't murder me,
         C          E      Am
I beg of you, don't murder me.
G  F                 C
Please, don't murder me.


C    Am           G
The Wolf came in, I got my cards,
    C       Bb    F
We sat down for a game.
F
I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades,
                           G
But the cards were all the same.


             F      G
Don't murder me,
         C          E     Am
I beg of you, don't murder me.
G  F                 C
Please, don't murder me.


       G
In the backwash of Fennario,
    Bb               F
The black and bloody mire,
    F
The Dire Wolf collects his due,
                               G
While the boys sing 'round the fire.


             F      G
Don't murder me,
         C          C  C   F
I beg of you, don't murder me.
G   F                C
Please, don't murder me.


             G      F
Don't murder me,
         C          E     Am
I beg of you, don't murder me.
G   F                C     C C   C  
Please, don't murder me.

G   F                C
Please, don't murder me.

    Thank you so much for this! I played it on my Banjolele for my dad’s birthday. He loved it.

  2. How’s about some broke down palace?
