Banjo in G tuning, gDGBD

SOLO

John Hardy married him a loving little wife
The dress she wore was blue
She threw her arms around Johnny's neck, says,
"Johnny, I'll be true to you, poor boy." says,
"Johnny I'll be true to you."

INTERLUDE

John Hardy was a-standing on the barrel of his gun
So drunk he could not see
When the police came and they took him by the arm, says,
"Johnny, come and go with me, poor boy." says,
"Johnny, come and go with me."

SOLO

John Hardy was a-standing in the barroom door
So drunk he could not see
But the police come and they took him by the arm, and said,
"You may go with me, poor boy." Oh they said,
"You may go with me."

INTERLUDE

John Hardy's mother came to him
Said, "Johnny, what have you done?"
"I've killed me a man in the poker game,
And I'm standing on the barrel of my gun, Lord, Lord,
Oh I'm standing on the barrel of my gun."

INTERLUDE

The night John Hardy was to be hanged
There came a storm of hail
And it blew the hanging scaffold down, and they
Placed John Hardy back in jail, Lord, Lord,
Oh they placed John Hardy back in jail
