Hangman

This song is by Peggy Seeger and appears on the album Love Call Me Home (2005).

Hangman, hangman, slack up your rope
Slack it for awhile
I look over yonder and I seen Pa coming
Coming for many a mile

Say Pa, say Pa, have you brung me no gold
Gold to pay my fine?
No sir, no sir, brung you no gold
Gold to pay your fine
I've just come for to see you hanged
All on the gallows line

Hangman, hangman, slack up your rope
Slack it for awhile
I look over yonder and I see Ma coming
Coming for many a mile

Say Ma, say Ma, have you brung me no gold
Gold to pay my fine?
No sir, no sir, brung you no gold
Gold to pay your fine
I've just come for to see you hanged
All on the gallows line

Hangman, hangman, slack up your rope
Slack it for awhile
I look over yonder, seen my true love coming
Coming for many a mile

True love, I stretch my hand to thee
No other help I know
If you withdraw your hand from me
O whither shall I go?

True love, true love, have you brung me no gold
Gold to pay my fine?
Yes sir, yes sir, brung you some gold
Gold to pay your fine
I've not come for to see you hanged
All on the gallows line

It's hard to love, hard to be loved
Hard to make up your mind
You've broke the heart of many poor girl
True love, but you won't break mine
