Key of G:
Met her on the moun -tain, I swore she'd be my wife,
But the gal re -fused me, So I stabbed her with my knife.
Hang down your head, Tom Doo -ley, Hang down your head and cry,
Hang down your head, Tom Doo -ley, Poor boy, you're bound to die.

This time come to -mor -row, I reck -on where I'll be,
In some lone -some val -ley, Hang in' -from a white oak tree.
Hang down your head, Tom Doo -ley, Hang down your head and cry,
Hand down your head, Tom Doo -ley, Poor boy, you're bound to die.
