When I hear the rain a comin' down it makes me sad and blue
Was on a rainy night like this that Flo said we were through
I told her how I loved her, and I begged her not to go
But another man had changed her mind so I said goodbye to Flo

Alone within my cell tonight my heart is filled with fear
The only sound within the room is the falling of each tear
I think about the thing I've done, I know it wasn't right

They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but they're hanging me tonight
They're hanging me tonight

That night he came and took my Flo and headed in to town
I knew I had to find this man and try to gun him down
As I walked by a dim cafe and I looked through the door

I saw my Flo with her new love and I couldn't stand no more
I couldn't stand no more

I took my pistol from my hip and with a trembling hand
I took the life of pretty Flo and that good for nothin' man
That good for nothin' man

I think about the thing I've done I know it wasn't right
They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but they're hanging me tonight
They're hanging me tonight
