tom dooley lyrics – neil young

tom dooley

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
hang down your head and cry
hang down your head, tom dooley
poor boy, you’re bound to die

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
hang down your head and cry
hang down your head, tom dooley
poor boy, you’re bound to die

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

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
hang down your head and cry
hang down your head, tom dooley
poor boy, you’re bound to die

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

poor boy, you’re bound to die
poor boy you’re bound to die
poor boy, you’re bound to die…
