Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Hang down your head and cry,
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Poor boy, your bound to die,

I met her on the mountain,
And there I took her life,
Met her on the mountain,
Stabbed her with my knife,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Hang down your head and cry,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Poor boy, your bound to die,

This time tomorrow,
Reckon' where I'd be,
Hadn't been for Grayson,
I'd been in Tennessee,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Hang down your head and cry,
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Poor boy, your bound to die,

This time tomorrow,
Reckon' where I'll be,
Down in some lonesome valley,
Hangin' from a wide oak tree,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Hang down your head and cry,
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Poor boy, your bound to die,

I met her on the mountain,
And there I took her life,
Met her on the mountain,
Stabbed her with my knife,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Hang down your head and cry,
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Poor boy, your bound to die,

Tom Dooley Tom Dooley
Tom Dooley Tom Dooley
Tom Dooley Tom Dooley
Tom Dooley Tom Dooley (2x)

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
Poor boy, your bound to die,
