Song: 4     4  4  -3     4   3     4    4
For tend us well and hear this song,

5      6    6   6  -5   6

This song that we are singin’

-5 -5  -5   6 -6    6 5 -5

About this humble carpenter

4   4   4  5  -4   4 -4
And how he got to swingin’.


   (same tab as above)
He were well known from County Dunn
From noble men to fool.
And though his skill were lackin’ much,
He possessed a mighty tool.

(Chorus) 

5     -5  -5 6  -6  6    5 -4 4
Oh, whip shelerry, hang shelerry,
-5   -5 6  -6  6
Flop de-diddle-dee,
-5   -5   -5  -5  6  -6   6     5  -4
Well hung by the gallows tree, me boys,
4    4     4 -4   5     -5  5  -5
Well hung by the high gallows tree.

With the ladies he were favored,
To them he were quite dear,
And when his sentence, it came down,
Each lass did shed a tear.

For Sheriff John did witness this,
The crime for which he swings,
For any man would kill the one,
Who pounds where he but pinked.

(Chorus)


And all the lasses of County Dunn,
Where there that fateful morn’
To pay a tearful faretheewell,
To the county’s favorite thorn.

4    4     4 -3
The horse did bray,
4    3    3   4
The rope went taut,
5   6  6   6   -5  6
The carpenter did hang,
4   -5  -5   6  -6  6 5    -4
And all the men of County Dunn
3     4     4  5    -4    4
With glee this song they sang!

(chorus 2x)
