Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while
I think I see my friends comin', ridin' many a mile
A-friends, ya get some silver, d'ya get a little gold
A-what did ya bring me, my dear friends
Keep me from the gallows pole
What did ya bring me, keep me from the gallows pole

I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold
You know that we're too damn poor
To keep you from the gallows pole

Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while
I think I see my brother comin', ridin' many a mile
M-brother, ya get me some silver, and d'ya get a little gold
A-what did ya bring me, my brother
Keep me from the gallows pole

Brother, I brought you some silver, yeah
I-I brought a little gold
I brought a little of everything
To keep you from the gallows pole
Yes, I brought you to keep you from the gallows pole

Hangman, hangman, turn your head a while
I think I see my sister comin'
Ridin' many a mile, mile, mile, mile
Sister, I implore ya, take him by the hand
A-take him to some shady bower
Save me from the wrath of this man
Please take him, save me from the wrath of this madman

Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile
Tell me that I'm free to ride, ride for many a mile, mile, mile

Oh, yes, you got a fine sister, she warmed my blood from cold
She warmed my blood to boilin' hot
Keep you from the gallows pole, pole, pole, pole, yeah, yeah
Your brother brought me silver, and your sister warmed my soul
But now I laugh and pull so hard
See ya swingin' on the gallows pole, yeah
But now I laugh and pull so hard
See ya swingin' on the gallows pole, pole, pole

Swingin' on the gallows pole, swingin' on the gallows pole
Swingin' on the gallows pole, swingin' on the gallows

A-keep, keep, whoa-whoa-whoa
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma, yeah
Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ah-ha-ha, ah-ha-ha, ah-ha-ha, ah-ha
Swingin' on the gallows, yeah, swingin' on the gallows pole
