    Lyrics

    (John A. Lomax - Frank Warner)

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

    Oh, boys 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.

    This time tomorrow
    Reckon where I'll be
    Hadn't've been for that Greysome
    I'd've been in Tennessee.

    Oh, boys 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    This time tomorrow
    Reckon where I'll be
    Down in some lonesome valley
    A swinging from a wide oak tree.

    Oh, boys 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.

    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...
