The "Mudcat CD Strawberry: Liner Notes PermaThread" thread says:
13. Hangman (Traditional US)
      Telynor (Anna Peekstok - octave mandolin, vocals; John Peekstok (JohnP) - cittern

Hangman is an American version of a song with many versions in the British Isles and America: The Gallows Pole, The
Maid Freed From the Gallows, The Prickle Berry Bush, Hangs-a-man, etc. Anna learned this one from her mother.
Anna's octave mandolin is tuned GDAE. She's playing Am chords but has a capo on the third fret, so the song's in Cm.
My cittern is tuned EAEAE & is capoed on the 15th fret. I stole a riff from "Battle of Evermore" by Led Zeppelin & stuck
it in between the verses. -- JP
