[Intro:]
Throughout history
There've been many songs written about the eternal triangle
This suivant one tells the story of a Mr Grayson, a beautiful woman
And a condemned man named Tom Dooley...
When the sun 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 met her on the mountain
There I took her life
Met her on the mountain
Stabbed her with my knife


Hang down your head, Tom Dooley...

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Hadn't a-been for Grayson
I'd a-been in Tennessee


Hang down your head, Tom Dooley...

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome valley
Hangin' from a white oak tree


Hang down your head, Tom Dooley...
