    Lyrics

    (John A. Lomax - arr. J.E. Brown & Felton Jarvis)

    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.

    Met her on the mountain
    There I took her life
    Met her on the mountain
    And stubbed her with my knife.

    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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    This time tomorrow
    Reckon where I'll be
    Down in some lonesome valley
    And swinging from the big pine tree.

    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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    This time tomorrow
    Reckon where I'll be
    If it hadn't been Fort Felton
    I'd've been in Nashville Tennessee.

    Yeah, 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.

    Come on now, 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...
