Hangman Blues - Lyrics

Album: Mark Searcy, Grapetown Rail, 2017 
Written by: Mark Searcy Middleton

Oh Lord I'm worried, Hangman's on my trail
Lord I'm worried, Hangman's on my trail
I've been runnin' for so long, ever since I skipped my bail

I shot that man over in Dallas, oh I took his brother too
Yeah shot that man over in Dallas, ah I took his brother too
L'come messin' with my family, Lord I'll cut you half into

Oh Lord I'm worried, been runnin' all night long
Oh Lord I'm worried, been runnin' all night long
From the big ole pack of hell hounds, oh I might not have too long

Oh Lord I'm prayin', praying day and night
Oh Lord I'm prayin', prayin' both day and night
They might just catch my shadow, but I'll be clean out of sight
Well they might just catch my shadow, I be clean out of sight
