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

Repeat #3

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

Repeat #3

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

Repeat #3

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

Repeat #3
