  • John Hardy, he was a desperate little man
    Carried two guns every day
    Shot a man down by the West Virginia line
    They saw John Hardy get away
    They saw John Hardy get away

    They cornered John Hardy on the Tombstone bridge
    He thought that he was free
    'Til the deputy sheriff came and grabbed him by the arm
    Said "Johnny, come along with me"
    "Johnny, come along with me"

    John Hardy, he stood inside his cell
    Tears running down his eyes
    Said "I've seen the death of many a poor boy
    Now I'm ready to die
    Now I'm ready to die"

    Well, I've been to the east and I've been to the west
    I've been the whole world round
    I've been to the north and I've been to the south
    Now I'm going to my hanging ground
    I'm going to my hanging ground
