Put the needle in my arm

And I'll be dead and gone

Put the needle in my arm

And I'll be dead and gone
I wouldn't mind a needle

I've just been on this road so long, oh boy

Been all a round the world


Verse 2:
--------

Been all the way to Reno and parts of Cali forn

Been all the way down Reno and parts of Cali forn

I had some kind of luck there

Wished I never had been born, oh boy

Been all a round the world


Verse 3:
--------

I went upon the signal hill

And there I made my stand

I went upon the signal hill

And there I made my stand

Bullets in my pocket

Semi- auto in my hand, oh boy

Been all a round the world





Verse 4:
--------


Put the needle in my arm

And I'll be dead and gone

Put the needle in my arm

And I'll be dead and gone

I wouldn't mind a needle

Just a- lying in a jail so long, oh boy

Been all a round the world


Verse 5:
--------

Put me down into the chair

And then I close my eyes

They put me down in to the chair

Then I closed my eyes

Last words that I re member

Won't be long before you die, oh boy

Been all a round the world


Verse 6:
--------

Put the needle in my arm

And I'll be dead and gone

Put the needle in my arm

And I'll be dead and gone

I wouldn't mind a needle

Just a- lying in a grave so long...

Been all a round the world

    Song FactThis is the Pixies version of the American folk song "Hang Me Oh Hang Me" poularised by Dave Van Ronk amoung others. The actual words have been changed quite a bit but are thematically similar. The melody has remained the same.
