"Hangman" as written by John Van Deusen, Robert Krueger and Eric Sturgeon....
(Concept: In which our hero's love interest loses her son.)

Morning light saves from darkness.
Her son lay dead before her.
She lifts his body, cradles softly,
Cursing God, the Father.

Morning light saves from darkness.
Her son lay dead before her.
She lifts his body, cradles softly,
Cursing God, the Father.

Tried to live life justly
And now you have repaid me.
You've taken my son from the world
Up into your arms?

Now I'm sure I won't believe in
All the promises that you sing
And damned if I don't feel this love
And all the hope you say you'll bring.

Now I'm sure I won't believe in
All the promises that you sing
And damned if I don't feel this love
And all the hope you say you'll bring.

Tried to live life justly
And now you have repaid me.
You've taken my son from the world
Up into your arms?

Left me hanging.
Left me hanging.
Time and time again.
Oh you've left me hanging.
Left me hanging.
From the noose we've tied my friend.
Take care of him Lord.

Tried to live life justly
And now you have repaid me.
You've taken my son from the world
Up into your arms?

Take care of him! Have mercy!

Tried to live life justly
And now you have repaid me.
You've taken my son from the world
Up into your arms?

Left me hanging.
Left me hanging.
Time and time again.
Oh you've left me hanging.
Left me hanging.
From the noose we've tied my friend.
Take care of him Lord.
