Tom Dooley Recorded by Doc Watson Written by Dave Guard
G C Hang your head Tom Dooley G Hang your head and cry D7 G You killed poor Laurie Foster C G And you know you're bound to die
C You left her by the roadside G Where you begged to be excused D7 G You left her by the roadside C G Then you hid her clothes and shoes
C Hang your head Tom Dooley G Hang your head and cry D7 G You killed poor Laurie Foster C G And you know you're bound to die
C You took her on the hillside G For to make her your wife D7 G You took her on the hillside C G And there you took her life
C You dug the grave four feet long G And you dug it three feet deep D7 G You rolled the cold clay over her C G And tromped it with your feet
C Trouble oh it's trouble G A-rollin' through my breast D7 G As long as I'm a-livin' boys C G They ain't a-gonna let me rest
C I know they're gonna hang me G Tomorrow I'll be dead D7 G Though I never even harmed a hair C G On poor little Laurie's head
C In this world and one more G Then reckon where I'll be D7 G If it wasn't for Sheriff Grayson C G I'd be in Tennessee
C You can take down my old violin G And play it all you please D7 G For at this time tomorrow boys C G It'll be of no use to me
C At this time tomorrow G Where do you reckon I'll be D7 G Away down yonder in the holler C G Hangin' on a white oak tree
