"Tom Dooley" as written by and Dave Guard....
[Chorus]
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Dooley
Poor boy you're bound to die

I met her on the mountain
There I took her life
I met her on the mountain
Stabbed her with a knife

[Chorus]

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
If it hadn't of been for Grayson
I'd have been in Tennessee

[Chorus]

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome canyon
Hanging from a wide oak tree

[Chorus]
