JWB Lyr Req: Hang Me (22) Lyr Req: Hang me 12 Apr 06


I'm looking for the words to a song I've only heard sung by a fellow named Chris Turner. I searched the DigiTrad and Forum, and the only reference I found was a chorus variant from a thread on capital punishment from 1999. So I throw it out into the pond to see if the mudcats are biting.

Chris calls it "Hang Me", and here's what I can remember:

Chorus:
Hang me, oh hang me, I'll be dead and gone (repeat)
It's not the hanging that I mind it's lying in the jail so long.
I've been all around this world.

Parts of verses include:
Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, it's there I'll make my stand.
    and
Federal, oh Federal, Federal can't catch me.

Thankee in advance for your assistance.

Jerry
