Hang 'em High Lyrics

11. Hang 'em High (3:20)
The red sun of summer burns the desert sands
The journey of the outlaw across the barren lands
Galloping fast in horseback, hooves echo in the hills
To escape a sheriff's posse who chase a man that kills

Clad in denim black, his forehead bleeds with sweat
Searching for some water to keep his whistle wet
The lawmen close behind him hasten up their pace
The outlaw and the noose are in their fatal race

Execution - high noon
Feel the rope tighten
Death is coming soon
So hang 'em high, hang 'em high

In the misty mountains the air smokes with heat
A fugitive and his horse collapse into a heap
They find their beaten foe, no longer on the loose
And slip his battered neck into the deadly noose

Whip the horse's ass, the outlaw falls off his back
Dangling from a rope, hear his neck bones crack
Legs are kicking wildly, rope digs way to bone
The lifeless body hanging heaves its dying moan

Execution - high noon
Feel the rope tighten
Death is coming soon
So hang 'em high, hang 'em high

Hang 'em, hang 'em, hang 'em high
Hang 'em, hang 'em, hang 'em high
Hang 'em, hang 'em, hang 'em high
