Brewster: Ballads and Songs of Indiana             12.1
12.   "I have not brought you gold;
I have not paid your fee, But I have come to see you hanging On the gallows tree."
13.    "Slack your rope, hangs-a-man;
O slack it for a while; I think I see my lover coming, Riding many a mile.
14.    "O Lover, have you brought me gold,
Or have you paid my fee? Or have you come to see me hanging On the gallows tree?"
15.    "Yes, I have brought you gold;
Yes, I have paid your fee, Nor have I come to see you hanging On the gallows tree."
