Tom Dooley

This song is by Eddy Arnold and appears on the album Thereby Hangs a Tale (1959).

(John A. Lomax - F. Warner)

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
And there I took her life
I met her on the mountain
And stabbed her with my knife.

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.

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

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.

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome valley
Hangin' from a white oak tree.

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...
