Swing, hangman, swing your rope
Swing it for a while
I think I see my mother comin'
She's rode for many a mile

Have you come to see me hung
Or come to pay my fee?
"Yes, I've come to see you hung
And swing from the gallows tree."

Swing, hangman, swing your rope
Swing it for a while
I think I see my father comin'
She's rode for many a mile

Have you come to see me hung
Or come to pay my fee?
"Yes, I've come to see you hung
And swing from the gallows tree"

Swing, hangman, swing your rope
Swing it for a while
I think I see my baby comin'
She's rode for many a mile

Have you come to see me hung
Or come to pay my fee?
"Yes, I've come to see you hung
And swing from the gallows tree."

Swing, hangman, swing your rope
Swing it for a while
I think I see my mistress comin'
She's rode for many a mile

Have you come to see me hung
Or come to pay my fee?
"Yes, I've come to see you hung
And swing from the gallows tree."

Such a piece of work is man
So easy to undo
What I wouldn't give right now
To trade places with you

It took nails, one, two, three
To crucify the Lord
All you're gonna need for me
Is one short length of cord
