  • The Hangman

    He rode into town
    On a gloomy day
    All dressed up in black
    Came to earn his ill pay

    Dark were his eyes
    His heart was cold
    At his hands men died
    On the end of his rope

    Moseyed to the saloon
    In his somber way
    Pall came over room
    From the look on his face

    The town knew he was back
    Waiting break of day
    Gauntly man in black
    Came to hang Billy Ray

    Left town the next morning
    Cheated of his fee
    Billy Ray broke free
    That morning half past three

    The hangman dressed in black
    Will be coming back
