Hangman, hangman, slack your rope
Slack it for a while
I think I see my father comin'
Ridin' many a mile.

Papa, did you bring me silver?
Papa, did you bring me gold
Did you come to see me hangin'
By the gallows pole?

I couldn't bring no silver
Didn't bring no gold
I came to see you hangin', boy
By the gallows pole.

Hangman, hangman, slack your rope
Slack it for a while
I think I see my mother comin'
She's ridin' many a mile.

Mama, did you bring me silver?
Mama, did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hangin'
By the gallows pole?

I didn't bring any silver
Didn't bring you any gold
I come to see you hangin', child
By that gallows pole.

Hangman, hangman, slack your rope
Slack it for a while
I think I see my sweetheart
She's ridin' many a mile.

Honey, did you bring me silver?
Honey, did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hangin'
By the gallows pole?

I brought you a little silver
I brought you a little gold
Didn't come to see you hangin'
By that gallows pole.

I brought you a little silver
I brought you a little gold
Didn't come to see you hangin'
By that gallows pole.
