Willie Watson

"Gallows Pole"

Wait a little while hangman
Wait a little while and see
I think I see my father coming way across the sea

Father did you bring me silver?
Father did you bring some gold?
What did you bring me dear father
To keep me from the Gallows Pole?

I didn't bring no silver
I didn’t bring no gold
I come to see you hanging
From the Gallows Pole

So wait a little while hangman
Wait a little while and see
I think I see my mother coming
From way across the sea

Mother did you bring me silver?
Mother did you bring some gold?
Did you come to see me hanging
From the Gallows Pole?

I didn't bring no silver
Didn't bring no gold
I come to see you swinging
From the Gallows Pole

Yes
You’re swinging
Yes
From the Gallows Pole

Yes
You're swinging
Yes
From the Gallows Pole

Slack up your rope hangman
Slack it for a while
I think I see my own true lover
Riding many miles

So lover did you bring me silver?
Lover did you bring some gold?
Did you come to see me hanging
From the Gallows Pole?

Oh yes I brought you silver
I brought a little gold
Brought a little of everything
To keep you from the Gallows Pole

Yes
I brought it
Yes
To keep you from the Gallows Pole

Yes
I brought it
Yes
To keep you from the Gallows Pole
