THEY'RE HANGING ME TONIGHT (Art Wolfe / Jimmy Lowe) Marty Robbins - 1959 Jeremy Gluck - 1987 The White Rope - 1988 Johnny Bush - 2000 When I hear the rain a-comin' down It makes me sad and blue Was on a rainy night like this That Flo said we were through I told her how I loved her And I begged her not to go But another man had changed her mind So I said goodbye to Flo Alone within my cell tonight My heart is filled with fear The only sound within the room Is the falling of each tear I think about the thing I've done I know it wasn't right They'll bury Flo tomorrow But they're hangin' me tonight They're hangin' me tonight That night he came and took my Flo And headed into town I knew I had to find this man And try to gun him down As I walked by a dim cafe And I looked through the door I saw my Flo with her new love And I couldn't stand no more I couldn't stand no more I took my pistol from my hip And with a tremblin' hand I took the life of pretty Flo And that good for nothin' man That good for nothin' man I think about the thing I've done I know it wasn't right They'll bury Flo tomorrow But they're hangin' me tonight They're hangin' me tonight (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
