lyrics

Chorus
Hang me, oh hang me. I'll be dead and gone.
Hang me, oh hang me. I'll be dead and gone.
I wouldn't mind the hanging, it's the laying in the grave so long, God knows!
I've been all around this world.

My father was a gambling man, he taught me how to play.
My father was a gambling man, he taught me how to play.
He said, "You'll never go begging, if you hold the ace and tray, God knows!"
I've been all around this world.

I've been all around Cape Girardeau, and parts of Arkansas.
Been so tired and hungry, I could hide behind a straw, God knows!
I've been all around this world.

Went up on a mountain, and there I made my stand.
I went up on a mountain, and there I made my stand.
A rifle on my shoulder, and a dagger in my hand, God knows!
I've been all around this world.

My mama and my papa and my baby sister makes three.
My mama and my papa and my baby sister makes three.
They'll come in the morning, for to see the end of me, God knows!
Been all around this world.

Chorus

If you'll play me one last tune, I'll be on my way.
If you'll play me one last tune, I'll be on my way.
Just let me hear your banjo, and I'll be on my way, God knows!
Been all around this world.

They put that rope around my neck and hung me up so high.
They put that rope around my neck and hung me up so high.
Last words I ever heard, "Won't be long before you die, God knows!"
Been all around this world.


(Chorus)

Their blend of clawhammer banjo, old-time harmonica, and mountain singing is original, yet demonstrates compelling reverence for tradition. This duo is drawn to time-honored tunes and their love for the music is infectious. ... more
