Odetta The Gallows Pole lyrics

Hangman, hangman slack your rope
Slack it for awhile
Think I see my father coming
Riding many a mile

Papa did you bring me silver?
Did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hanging by the gallows pole?

I didn't bring no silver
Didn't bring no gold
Come to see you hang by the gallows pole

Well, Hangman, hangman slack your rope
Slack it for awhile
Think I see my mother coming
Riding many a mile

Little mama did you bring me silver?
Did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hanging by the gallows pole?

I didn't bring no silver
Couldn't get no gold
Come to see you hang by the gallows pole

Hangman, hangman slack your rope
Slack it for awhile
Think I see my sweetheart coming
Riding many a mile

Honey did you bring me silver?
Did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hang by the gallows pole?
Hanging by the gallows pole?

I brought you silver
Brought you a gold
Brought you a little everything to keep you from the gallows pole
