I been all around cape girardeau... parts of Arkansas

Went up on the mountain... there i made my stand
Went up on the mountain... there i made my stand
rifle on my shoulder... and a dagger in my hand
poor boy... i been all around this world

Hang me, Oh hang me, and I'll Be dead and gone.
Hang me, Oh hang me...,I'll be dead and gone...
wouldn't mind the hangin... but the layin in the grave so long
poor boy... i been all around this world.

Put the noose around my neck... hung me up so high
Put the noose around my neck... hung me up so high
last words i heard em say... won't be long now fore you die
poor boy... i been all around this world

Hang me, Oh hang me, and I'll Be dead and gone.
Hang me, Oh hang me... I'll be dead and gone..
wouldn't mind the hangin... but the layin in the grave so long
poor boy... i been all around this world.
