Hangman hangman hold it a little while Think I see my friends coming Riding many a mile. Friends did you get some silver? Did you get a little gold? What did you bring me my dear friends To keep me from the gallows pole? What did you bring me to 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 coming Riding a many mile. Brother'd you get me some silver? Did you get a little gold? What did you bring me, my brother To keep me from the gallows pole Brother, I brought you some silver (yeah) I brought a little gold I brought a little of ev'ry thing To keep you from the gallows pole. Yes, I brought you to keep you from the gallows pole. Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile I think I see my sister coming Riding a many mile, mile, mile. Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand Take him to some shady bower Save me from the wrath of this man Please take him Save me from the wrath of this man, man. Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile Pray tell me that I'm free to ride Ride for many mile, mile, mile. Oh, yes, you got a fine sister She warmed my blood from cold Brought my blood to boiling hot To keep you from the gallows pole. Your brother brought me silver Your sister warmed my soul But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swinging on the gallows pole But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swinging on the gallows pole Swingin' on the gallows pole! Swingin' on the gallows pole! Swingin' on the gallows pole! Swingin' on the gallows pole! Keep-a-swingin'! Keep-a-swingin'! Keep-a-swingin'! Keep it, keep it! Swingin' on the gallows pole! Ah-ha-ha Swingin' Swingin' on the gallows pole! See-saw marjory daw See-saw knock at my door
