lyrics

I’ll rise in the east and I’ll follow the sun
For fear they should find me and learn what I’ve down
Now I am New England bound banished from my home
Forced to leave the place I love and cursed to be alone
They’ll try me and they’ll taunt me
And when they’ve had their fill
They’ll drag me to the gallows
And hang me on the hill.
They’ll try me and they’ll taunt me
And when they’ve had their fill
They’ll drag me to the gallows
And hang me on the hill.
I took a life to spare a life
And now I bear that shame
The only one who know the truth
Can’t speak to clear my name
One quick right in the dead of night
Forever hunts my soul
Now she’s paralyzed by fear
And I‘m left in the cold

They’ll try me and they’ll taunt me
And when they’ve had their fill
They’ll drag me to the gallows
And hang me on the hill.
They’ll try me and they’ll taunt me
And when they’ve had their fill
They’ll drag me to the gallows
And hang me on the hill.
