FIDDLE SOLO

"I've been to the East and I've been to the West,
Been all around this wide world.
Been to the river and I've been baptized,
And I'm standing on the hanging ground, I do know,
Standing on this hanging ground."

"Hangman, hangman, hold your rope,
Just a little while.
I thought I heard my father's voice,
He has traveled ten thousand long miles, I do know,
He's traveled ten thousand long miles."

FIDDLE SOLO

"Did you bring any silver or gold
Or money to pay my fee?
Or did you come for to see me hung,
Upon this hanging tree, I do know,
Upon this hanging tree."

"No, I didn't bring no silver nor gold,
No money to pay your fee.
But I did come for to see you hung
Up on this hanging tree, I do know,
Up on this hanging tree."

FIDDLE SOLO

"Hangman, hangman, hold your rope,
Just a little while.
I thought I heard my sweetheart's voice,
She has traveled ten thousand long miles, I do know,
She's traveled ten thousand long miles."

"Oh yes, I brought that silver and gold,
And money to pay your fee.
But I have come for to take you home,
And keep you there with me, I do know,
And keep you there with me."
