Let Em Hang Me

 

Let love of life become undone

Its told the father of this son aint weeping

Return the will of countrymen

Let freedom move again into their keeping

 

Let days grow long from here and now

Its told the sun burns bright from devastation

Return the minds that figured out

Let all the others left in congregation

 

Hang me Let em hang me

Put a noose around my neck out where the gallows stand erect

Hang me let em hang me

Swing my body in the wind

Dropped in dust where I began

 

Let em hang me for the crime Ive done

Its told I am an enemy of the nation

Let women and children fear no one

As the guns of justice fire with indignation

 

Let rays appear from open clouds

Its told my end will bring on reclamation

Let all the squares hold hopeful crowds

Let all the choirs sing in jubilation

 

Hang me Let em hang me

Put a noose around my neck out where the gallows stand erect

Hang me let em hang me

Swing my body in the wind

Dropped in dust where I began

 

Men rise and fall by his words his actions

And the courts decide his fate

Judged by a jury made up of peers

The worst go down and reach for heavens gate- But its too late

 

Let signals waft up through the skies

Its told the eagles flight was high above me

Let everyone that hears this cry

Understand the reason why they chose me

 

Let all free men know what is just

Let them take heed of trials and tribulation

For my death is only a gust

From a coming storm of certain annihilation

 

Hang me Let em hang me

Put a noose around my neck out where the gallows stand erect

Hang me let em hang me

Swing my body in the wind

Dropped in dust where I began
