(John A. Lomax - Frank 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
There I took her life
Met her on the mountain
And stubbed her with my knife.

Oh, boys 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 time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Hadn't've been for that Greysome
I'd've been in Tennessee.

Oh, boys 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.

--- Instrumental ---

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome valley
A swinging from a wide oak tree.

Oh, boys 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.

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 "Night Train To Memphis", "Mr. Mel [Kapp]" and "Night Train to Memphis [Hilltop]".
