This was probably the last song that Johnny Cash ever wrote, and it's a good thing 
that he wrote it with Marty Stuart, as he's somebody who knows how to carry on the 
traditions that Cash had been laying down since the 1950s. It's also fitting that 
it's a prison song. If you haven't already, then check out all the other songs on 
this album, as it's definitely one of Stuart's finest (except the song 'Porter 
Wagoner's Grave'... that's s**t).

A D AI killed another man today, it's hard to believe,
E AThat I lost count at thirty, and I've grown too numb to grieve.
A D AThe bottle helps me cope, when I lay down at night,
E AAnd when the dope rolls through my veins, it all fades out of sight.
DHangman, Hangman,
AThat's my stock and trade.
EHangman, Hangman,
ASending bad men to their grave.
ABut who killed who? I ask myself,
D ATime and time again.
EGod have mercy on the soul,
E7 AOf this Hangman.
A D AAnd there's a woman down the street, named Rosalie McFall,
E AShe don't ask me any questions, when I come to call.
A D AHer body keeps me warm, her words are soft and kind,
E AShe holds me in her arms, 'til the bad dreams leave my mind.
DHangman, Hangman,
AThat's my stock and trade.
EHangman, Hangman,
ASending bad men to their grave.
ABut who killed who? I ask myself,
D ATime and time again.
EGod have mercy on the soul,
E7 AOf this Hangman.
