TOM DOOLEY

THE KINGSTON TRIO

Spoken: Through out history, there were many songs.
Written about the eternal triangle.
The next one tells the story of Mr. Grayson.
A beautiful woman and a condemed
man named Tom Dooley.
When the run rises tomorrow Tom Dooley must hang.

* 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 meet her on the mountain,
there I took her life.
Met her on the mountain,
stabbed her with my knife. ( Repeat * )

This time tomorrow, reckon where I’ll be.
Hadn’t a-been for Grayson,
I’d been in Tennessee. ( Repeat * )

This time tomorrow, reckon where I’ll be.
Down in some lonesome valley.
Hanging on a white oak tree. ( Repeat * )
