Hangman (original song-cigar box guitar)

Original song written by Alyson Shelton. All rights reserved. Copyright 2012 One Woman Band style with percussion. Right leg playing a cajon and left leg playing tambourine.
3 string cigar box guitar by Keith Alan

lyrics:
Hangman is coming
Down to Caroline
Gonna be a hanging
They're gonna put me on that line

Come early in the morning
'bout sunrise
There's gonna be a hanging
there will be justice for a crime

Early in the morning
when the rooster crow
the hangman is coming
gonna put that line around my throat

Early in the morning
just about sunrise
there's gonna be a hanging
gonna be justice for a crime

Can you hear the cock crow
It's just about day
I can see the hangman
coming to take my life away

The hangman is coming
down to Caroline
there's gonna be a hanging
they're gonna put me on that line

NightOwl, you are amazing. I love this song, and the music. Girl you are so talented. I can't see how you play and sing all at once. I can't chew gum and walk at the same time. LOL.

That there is the blues.  Excellent from top to bottom.  I'd also be curious as to your setup on the percussion - it sounds fantastic.

WooHoo! Might be the best song on there?
