A dry killing wind
Blows across the desert floor
I walked a hundred miles
Now it is just a couple more

They put a rope around my neck
And put me in the ground
Yeah but you know what they say
You can't keep a good man down

They gave me just enough rope
Wrapped it tight around my throat
Swung me from the gallows pole
Dumped my body in a hole
They gave me just enough rope

Now hell is coming to your town
And those who tried to put me down
You know they're gonna rue the day
You know I'm gonna make 'em pay
They gave me just enough rope

They dragged me through the desert
Left me in a shallow grave
Said I was an outlaw
Thought my hanging made them brave

They left me for a corpse
For the vultures and the rats
Yeah they thought they put me down
But now I'm back

They gave me just enough rope
Wrapped it tight around my throat
Swung me from the gallows pole
Dumped my body in a hole
They gave me just enough rope

Now hell is coming to your town
And those who tried to put me down
You know they're gonna rue the day
You know I'm gonna make 'em pay
They gave me just enough rope
