    Hangman, put that rope away
    Will you give me till the break of day?
    Heaven help me for the fate I chose
    Down where the old oak grows

    Mama met me at the door that night
    She said, "There's blood on your hands and your face is all white"
    "Don't ask me, Mama - nobody knows
    What went down where the old oak grows"

    Where the old oak grows at the bend in the river
    One dark night there was a breach of trust (tale of lust)
    Mama, don't weep for me
    It's an eye for an eye and dust to dust

    See those people, they are gathered around
    There's a man lyin' dead on the ground
    "Where'd they find him?" "You don't want to know"
    "Tell me - not down where the old oak grows"

    Well, he held me down and he had his way
    He said there'd be no wedding day
    In a flash of anger I pulled my knife
    God forgive me, I took his life

    Hear the wagon wheels rollin' at dawn
    Six white horses come to carry me on
    Say a little prayer for the fate I chose
    And bury me down where the old oak grows
