Nick Reynolds/Adam Yagodka

Hangman, hangman, hangman, slack your rope a while. Think I see my brother, ridin' many a mile.
Well, brother, did you bring me silver? Brother, did you bring me gold
Or did you come to see me hangin' from the gallows poles?

No, I didn't bring you any silver. No, I didn't bring any gold. I just come to see you hangin' from the gallows pole.

Hangman, hangman, hangman, slack your rope a while. Think I see my father, ridin' many a mile.
Well, father did you bring me any silver? Father, did you bring me any gold
Or did you come to see me hangin' from the gallows poles?

No, I didn't bring you any silver. No, I didn't bring any gold. I just come to see you hangin' from the gallows pole.

Hangman, hangman, hangman, slack your rope a while. Think I see my sweetheart, ridin' many a mile.

Well, sweetheart did you bring any silver? Sweetheart, did you bring a little gold
Or did you come to see me hangin' from the gallows pole?

Yes, I brought a little silver. Yes, I brought a little gold. I didn't come to see you hangin' from the gallows pole.
