Gallows Pole

by Neil Young & Crazy Horse




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

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

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

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

Mama, did you bring me silver?
Mama, did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hanged
By that gallows pole?

Didn't bring any silver
Couldn't bring you any gold
I came to see you hanged, child
By the gallows pole

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

Honey, did you bring me silver?
Honey, did you bring me gold?
Did you come to see me hanged
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

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