    "Tom Dooley" Lyrics

    The Kingston Trio feat. Grayson & Whitter

    Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
    Hang down your head and cry
    Killed poor Laura Foster
    You know you're bound to die

    You took her on the hillside, as God almighty knows
    You took her on the hillside and there you hid her clothes

    You took her by the roadside where you begged to be excused
    You took her by the roadside where there you hid her shoes

    You took her on the hillside to make her your wife
    You took her on the hillside where there you took her life

    Take down my old violin and play it as you please
    At this time tomorrow, it'll be no use to me

    I dug a grave four foot long, I dug it three feet deep
    And throwed the cold clay o'er her and tramped it with my feet

    This world and one more then where do you reckon I'd be
    If it hadn't been for Grayson, I'd a-been in Tennessee
