TOM DOOLEY – (The Kingston Trio)

 

Spoken:
Through out history, there were many songs
Written about the eternal triangle
The next one tells the story of Mr. Grayson
A beautiful woman and a condemed man
Named Tom Dooley
When the run rises tomorrow
Tom Dooley must hang

* Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you’re bound to die

I meet her on the mountain, there I took her life
Met her on the mountain, stabbed her with my knife

(Repeat *)

This time tomorrow, reckon where I’ll be
Hadn’t a-been for Grayson, I’d been in Tennessee

(Repeat *)

This time tomorrow, reckon where I’ll be
Down in some lonesome valley
Hanging on a white oak tree

(Repeat *)
