"Two Hangmen" as written by and Terry Nolan Talbot John Michael Talbot....
As I rode into Tombstone on my horse, his name was Mack I saw what I'll relate to you, going on behind my back It seems the folks were up-in-arms, a man now had to die For believing things that didn't fit, the laws they'd set aside The mans name was "I'm a Freak". the best that could see He was the executioner, a hangman just like me I geuss he'd seen loopholes from working with his rope He'd hung the wrong man many times, so now he turned to hope He talked to all the people from his scaffold in the square He told them of the things he found, but they didn't seem to care He said the laws were obsolete, a change they should demand But the people only walked away, he couldn't understand The marshals name was "Uncle Sam", he said he'd right this wrong He'd make the hangman shut his mouth, if it took him all day long He finally arrested Freak, and then he sent for me To hang a fellow hangman, from a fellow hangmans tree It didn't take them long to try him in their court of law He was guilty then of "Thinking", a crime much worse than all They sentenced him to die, so his seed of thought can't spread And infect the little children, that's what the law had said So the hangin' day came 'round, and he walked up to the noose I pulled the lever, but before he fell I cut him lose They called it a conspiracy, and that I had to die So to close our mouths and kill our minds, they hung us side-by-side And now we're two hangmen, hangin' from a tree That don't bother me, at all Two hangmen, hangin' from a tree That don't bother me, at all (Same all the way to the end)

    General CommentOutstanding song. They don't take much pain in trying to hide the meaning, but its powerful nonetheless.
