Volbeat – The Hangman's Body Count lyrics
Verse 1

Hear his boots and see the figure dressed in black

Echoes of him have been heard, spiritually he is all intact

Guided by the raven since his eyes can't see

Hear him drag the rope that goes up to the hangman’s tree

The wind calls your name, get out of your bed

Go up to the hills, the raven will lead

Judgement will prevail; the hangman is here

Verse 2

You smell the rain, and as you walk the final dirt

Pictures of the crime are past but not forgotten in this world

See the valley turn to darkness on your way

The only friend you have is standing at the gallows end

The wind calls your name, get out of your bed

Go up to the hills, the raven will lead

Jugdement will prevail; the hangman is here

Put on the rope, you knew the day was coming

Say your prayers once more; you are a part of the Hangman’s Body Count

(Solo)

Verse 3

Hear his boots and see the figure dressed in black

Echoes of him have been heard, spiritually he is all intact

The wind calls your name, get out of your bed

Go up to the hills, the raven will lead

Judgement will prevail; the hangman is here

Put on the rope, you knew the day was coming

Say your prayer once more; you are a part of the Hangman’s Body Count
