Tom Dooley

REFREIN:
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 meet her on the mountain
and stabbed her with my knife.
 
REFREIN
 
This time tomorrow
Reckon where I’ll be,
If it had n’t been for Grayson,
I had been of Tenessee.
 
REFREIN
 
This time tomorrow
Reckon where I’ll be,
In some Lonesome valley
A hanging on a white oak tree.
