      The Carter Family - John Hardy Was A Desperate Little Man Música y Letra

      John Hardy was a desperate little man
      He carried two guns every day
      He shot a man on the West Virginia line
      And you ought to see John Hardy getting away
      
      John Hardy got to the east stone bridge
      He thought that he would be free
      And up stepped a man and took him by his arm
      Saying Johnny, walk along with me
      
      He sent for his poppy and his mommy too
      To come and go his bail
      But money won't go a murdering case
      And they locked John Hardy back in jail
      
      John Hardy had a pretty little girl
      That dress that she wore was blue
      As she came skipping through the old jail hall
      Saying Poppy, I been true to you
      
      John Hardy had another little girl
      That dress that she wore was red
      She followed John Hardy to his hanging ground
      Saying Poppy, I would rather be dead
      
      "I've been to the east and I've been to the west
      I've been this wide world around
      I've been to the river and I've been baptized
      And it's now I'm on my hanging ground"
      
      John Hardy walked out on his scaffold high
      With his loving little wife by his side
      And the last words she heard poor John-O say
      "I‘ll meet you in that sweet bye and bye"
