Hang Me High

This song is by Ghoultown and appears on the album Give 'Em More Rope (2002).

It was cold late November
The witching hour near
The wind howled through the gallows tree
No one shed a tear
I felt the rope around my neck
A man the world forgot
I knew right then what I had to do
So I said goodbye to God

I slept in Transylvania
I walked with the undead
I rode the night with Jesse James
Reveled in my sins
I hung with no signs of life
Yet I still lived
To hell with dyin' with regrets
The grave it don't forgive

Look to the west
Cross my heart and die
Remember who I am oh Lord
When they hang me high
When they hang me
High

There's only one chance in this life
To do or die is all
A thousand ways that I might go
One's just as good as them all
I dredged up my heartbeat
I stole one more breath
I cut the rope around my throat
Now I cheated death

Look to the west
Cross my heart and die
Remember who I am oh Lord
When they hang me high
Look to the west
Cross my heart and die
Remember who I am oh Lord
When they hang me high
When they hang me
High
