(John A. Lomax - arr. J.E. Brown & Felton Jarvis)

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.

Met her on the mountain
There I took her life
Met her on the mountain
And stubbed 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.

--- Instrumental ---

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome valley
And swinging from the big pine 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.

--- Instrumental ---

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
If it hadn't been Fort Felton
I'd've been in Nashville Tennessee.

Yeah, 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.

Come on now, 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 song is from the album "Country's Best on Record [RCA Victor]".
