The Lyrics

It went in hard, and fast, and deep. And it came out sticky. He never bragged about it, but we all found out anyway. And we've been singing about it for years.
Well, the "tool" you held was lengthy
And your wielding most adept
And it made a sharp impression
On that girl with whom you slept
They'll commemorate your manly deed
The church bells will be rung
They'll all say-ay-ay "Tom Dooley's hung"
Tom Dooley's hung! Tom Dooley's hung!
They'll all say-ay-ay "Tom Dooley's hung"

You're renowned for penetration
And you're known to drive it deep
By now it's public knowledge
That "little" secret you would keep
Suspended there for all to see
It pops upright when sprung*
We all know-ow-ow Tom Dooley's hung
Tom Dooley's hung! Tom Dooley's hung!
We all know-ow-ow Tom Dooley's hung

Well it takes a mighty muscle
And it takes some skill and brawn
To produce such an erection
Out there on the courthouse lawn
You're really not a wicked boy
You're just a little bit high strung
Let's just say-ay-ay "Tom Dooley's hung"
Tom Dooley's hung! Tom Dooley's hung!
Let's just say-ay-ay Tom Dooley's hung
*Just in case anyone is interested in the mechanics of capital punishment, there was a peculiar type of gallows that employed a counterweight to spring the victim into the air rather than dropping him through a trapdoor. The newspaper headline reporting the first use of this device read "Jerked to Jesus".
