They're Hanging me Tonight

When I hear the rain, a comin' down
it makes me sad and blue,
was on a rainy night like this
that Flo said we were through.
 
I told her how I loved her and
I begged her not to go,
but another man had changed her mind,
so I said goodbye to Flo.
 
Alone within my cell tonight,
my heart is filled with fear,
the only sound within the room
is the falling of each tear.
 
I think about the thing I've done,
I know it wasn't right.
They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but
they are hanging me, me tonight,
they're hanging me tonight.
 
That night he came and took my Flo
and headed in to town,
I knew I had to find this man
and try to gun him down.
 
As I walked by a dim café
and I looked through the door,
I saw my Flo with her new love
and I couldn't stand no more,
I couldn't stand no more.
 
I took my pistol from my hip
and with a trembling hand
I took the life of pretty Flo and
that good for nothin' man,
that good for nothin' man.
 
I think about the thing I've done,
I know it wasn't right.
They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but
they are hanging me tonight,
they're hanging me tonight.
