Marty Stuart Lyrics


            Tuning: Standard
Capo: 1st fret

           A               D                 A
I killed another man today, it's hard to believe,
     E                                  A
That I lost count at thirty, and I've grown too numb to grieve.
      A                        D               A
The bottle helps me cope, when I lay down at night,
              E                               A
And when the dope rolls through my veins, it all fades out of sight.

  D
Hangman, Hangman,
  A
That's my stock and trade.
  E
Hangman, Hangman,
         A
Sending bad men to their grave.
     A
But who killed who? I ask myself,
 D              A
Time and time again.
          E
God have mercy on the soul, E7 A Of this Hangman. A D A And there's a woman down the street, named Rosalie McFall, E A She don't ask me any questions, when I come to call. A D A Her body keeps me warm, her words are soft and kind, E A She holds me in her arms, 'til the bad dreams leave my mind. D Hangman, Hangman, A That's my stock and trade. E Hangman, Hangman, A Sending bad men to their grave. A But who killed who? I ask myself, D A Time and time again. E God have mercy on the soul, E7 A Of this Hangman.
