Country Joe McDonald – When The Curfew Blows lyrics
Oh the lonesomest sound, boys
I ever heard sound, boys,
On the stroke of midnight
Hear the curfew blow.

My body will hang, boys,
On the hangman's rope, boys,
On the gallows pole, boys,
When the curfew blows.

Hear the curfew blowin'
Hear the curfew blowin'
In the cold black midnight
Hear the curfew blow.

The sheriff's men, boys,
Are on my trail, boys,
In the midnight wind, boys,
Hear the curfew blow.

And when they catch me
My body will hang, boys,
On the gallows pole, boys,
When the curfew blows.

Hear the curfew blowin'
Hear the curfew blowin'
In the cold black midnight
Hear the curfew blow.
