The Gallis Pole Lyrics

Father, did you bring me the silver,
Father, did you bring me the gold?
What did you bring me, dear father,
Keep me from the gallows pole?

Yeah, what did you?
Yeah, what did you?
What did you bring me, keep me from the gallows pole?

Spoken: In olden times years ago, when you put a man in
prison behind the bars in a jailhouse, if you had
fifteen or twenty-five or thirty dollars you could save
him from the gallows pole 'cause they gonna hang him if
you don't bring up a little money. Everybody would come
to the jailhouse and boy would ran upside the jail; he
was married, too. As for who brang him something, lot
of comfort, here comes his mother.

Mother, did you bring me the silver,
Mother, did you bring me the gold?
What did you bring me, dear mother,
Keep me from the gallows pole?

Yeah, what did you?
Yeah, what did you?
What did you bring me, keep me from the gallows pole?

Son, I brought you some silver,
Son, I brought you some gold.
Son, I brought you a little of everything,
Keep you from the gallows pole.

Yeah, I brought it.
Yeah, I brought it.
I brought you, keep you from the gallows pole.

Spoken: Here come his wife. His wife brought him all
kind of clock parts and trace change. Everything in the
world she could to get him out of the jailhouse.

Wife, did you bring me the silver,
Wife, did you bring me the gold?
What did you bring me, dear wifey,
Save me from the gallows pole?

Yeah, what did you?
Yeah, what did you?
What did you bring me, keep me from the gallows pole?

Friends, did you bring me the silver,
Friends, did you bring me the gold?
What did you bring me, my dear friends,
Keep me from the gallows pole?

Yeah, what did you?
Yeah, what did you?
What did you bring me, keep me from the gallows pole?
