(Traditional - Arr. GBS)

Well, they call me Hangin' Johnny
Away boys, away
Well, I never hanged nobody
And it's hang boys, hang

Well, first I hanged me mother
Away boys, away
Me sister and me brother
And it's hang boys, hang

Well, next I hanged me granny
Away boys, away
Well, I'd hang the Holy Family
And it's hang boys, hang

Well, I never hangs for money
Away boys, away
It's just that hanging's so bloody funny
And it's hang boys, hang

Oh, they calls me Hangin' Johnny
Away boys, away
Well, I never hanged nobody
And it's hang boys, hang
