Asphalt Ballet – Hangman Swing lyrics

There aint no judge, no jury down around El Paso
Hangman posse blazing my trail before I get to Mexico
Thirteen guns were tracking, side the Rio Grande they rode
About a debt I owe, yeah!

Through the heat of the desert sun underneath a blackbirds wing
I keeping one step ahead of the gun
Or I'll be stretching my neck in a noose
Doing the hangman swing

Sheriff wants to lynch me for what I did to his wife
Well how was I to know it was her, but it damn sure was nice
Now they want to see me dancing on the end of a rope
About a debt I owe, yeah!

Through the heat of the desert sun underneath a blackbirds wing
I keeping one step ahead of the gun
Or I'll be stretching my neck in a noose
Doing the hangman swing

Hangman swing (hangman swing)
It's hangman swing, swing, swing
Hangman swing (hangman swing)
Cmon, swing boys, yeah!

Found me bout a half days ride from the border of Mexico
Put a bullet twixt my blades and my neck in a rope

Through the heat of the desert sun underneath a blackbirds wing
I keeping one step ahead of the gun
Or I'll be stretching my neck in a noose
Doing the hangman swing

Yeah, the hangman swing (hangman swing)
It's hangman swing, swing, swing
Hangman swing (hangman swing)
Yeah, the hangman swing (hangman swing)
It's the hangman swing (hangman swing)
Yeah, the hangman swing (hangman swing)
Well the hangman swing (hangman swing)
