1. They call me hanging Johnny.
Away, boys, away!
They say I hang for money.
Oh hang, boys, hang.
And first I hanged my daddy.
Away, boys, away!
And first I hanged my daddy.
Oh hang, boys, hang.

2. They I hanged my mother.
Away, boys, away!
My sister and my brother.
Oh hang, boys, hang.
And then I hanged my granny.
Away, boys, away!
And then I hanged my granny.
Oh hang, boys, hang.

3. They I hanged my Annie.
Away, boys, away!
I hanged her up so canny.
Oh hang, boys, hang.
We’ll hang and haul together.
Away, boys, away!
And haul for better weather.
Oh hang, boys, hang.
