Lyrics

Go to sleep my lover
go to sleep my son
go to sleep my sister
when i get my gun

don't look at me my darling
don't look at what i've done
i've killed the old tom jailor
now i'm on the run

old tom jailor
killed my only son
took him to the gallows
for something he ain't done

i ain't a killing man
but killins what i've done
you take a life i take your life
and the pendulum swung

go to sleep my lover
go to sleep my son
go to sleep my brother
when i get my gun

don't look at me my darlin
don't look at what i've done
i've killed the old john banker
and now i'm on the run

old john banker
took the family farm
destitute and lonely
i ain't mean no harm

i ain't a killin man
but killins what i've done
you take a life i take your life
and the pendulum swung

go to sleep my lover
go to sleep my son
go to sleep my sister
when i get my gun

don't look at me my darlin
don't look at what i've done
i've killed the old joe preacher
and now i'm on the run

old joe preacher
spoke the holy word
a preaching mouth
a sinning sword
that's all i heard

i ain't a killin man
but killins what i've done
you take a life i take your life
and the pendulum swung
