lyrics

Gaslights in Hell
Gerace/Wanner / ASCAP

After the gaslights are lit,
the fog masks the path of my feet
Through infamy, on to disgrace,
Alone, I walk these East End streets

A poor, fallen woman, kind sir!
I pray that your pockets are deep
Past the Ten Bells, the dark alley waits
For a knee-trembler, oh-so-discrete.

Chorus1:
Because I am hopeless, I walk – I walk
Poor Annie is gone now as well, she’s gone…
As we tread these streets, so he stalks
I fear the sharp blade of a swell
I fear he will see me in hell – in hell!
Next the Ripper could choose me instead…
These horrors now fill me with dread – with dread!

Under the gaslights we walk
‘Tis here we ply our shameful trade
No choice – else I’d be some toff’s bride
Not mired in the muck where I’m laid

They say that he cannot be stopped
His taste for our blood is too keen
And the fury of his gutting blade
Grows more frenzied with each one he finds!

Because I am hopeless, I walk – I walk
Long Liz Stride is next up, I sense – who’s next?
As we tread these streets, so he stalks
I fear the sharp blade of a swell
I fear he will see me in hell – in hell!
Next the Ripper could choose me instead…
These horrors now fill me with dread – with dread!
