When I hear the rain a comin' down It makes me sad and blue Was on a rainy night like this that Flo said we were through.
I told her how I loved her, and I begged her not to go But another man had changed her mind so I said goodbye to Flo. Alone within my cell tonight my heart is filled with fear The only sound within the room is the falling of each tear. I think about the thing I've done, I know it wasn't right They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but they're hanging me tonight, They're hanging me tonight! That night he came and took my Flo and headed in to town I knew I had to find this man and try to gun him down As I walked by a dim cafe and I looked through the door I saw my Flo with her new love and I couldn't stand no more, I couldn't stand no more. I took my pistol from my hip and with a trembling hand I took the life of pretty Flo and that good for nothin' man That good for nothin' man! I think about the thing I've done I know it wasn't right They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but they're hanging me tonight, They're hanging me tonight.
