Lyrics to Two Hangmen As I rode into Tombstone on my horse, his name was Mack,

I saw what I'll relate to you going on behind my back.

It seems the folks were up in arms, a man now had to die

For believing things that didn't fit the laws they'd set aside.



The man's name was Ima Freak, the best that I could see.

He was the executioner, a hangman just like me.

I guess that he'd seen loopholes from working with his rope.

He'd hung the wrong man many times, so now he'd turned to hope.



He talked to all the people from his scaffold in the square.

He told them of the things he'd found, but they didn't seem to care.

He said the laws were obsolete, a change they should demand,

But the people only walked away. He couldn't understand.



The marshall's name was Uncle Sam. He said he'd right this wrong.

He'd make the hangman shut his mouth if it took him all day long.

He finally arrested Freak and then he sent for me

To hang a fellow hangman from a fellow hangman's tree.



It didn't take them long to try him in their court of law.

He was guilty then of thinking, a crime much worse than all.

They sentenced him to die, so his seed of thought can't spread

And infect the little children. That's what the law had said.



So the hanging day came 'round and he walked up to the noose.

I pulled the lever, but, before he fell, I cut him loose.

They called it all conspiracy and that I had to die,

So, to close our mouths and kill our minds, they hung us side by side.



And now we're two hangmen hanging from a tree.

That don't bother me at all.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree.

That don't bother me at all.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree.

That don't bother me at all.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree.

That don't bother me at all.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree

On both sides of Jesus.

That don't bother me, that don't bother me, at all.

Yeah, sing it.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree.

You gotta hang around.

That don't bother me at all.

You gotta hang around,

Hanging from a tree now.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree.

That don't bother me at all.



Two hangmen hanging from a tree.

That don't bother me at all.
