The Kingston Trio

Tom Dooley

(parlando:)
Throughout history, there've been many songs written about the eternal triangle
This next one tells the story of a Mr Grayson, a beautiful woman,
and a condemned man named Tom Dooley
When the sun rises tomorrow, Tom Dooley must hang.

(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
Met her on the mountain
Stabbed her with my knife.

Chorus

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Hadn't a-been for Grayson
I'd a-been in Tennessee.

Chorus (bis)

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

Chorus (bis)
|: Poor boy, you're bound to die :|
