    ===lyrics from Mudcat.org 

    It was one dark night; the story has been told,

    And the things that I have heard, they make my blood run cold,

    'Cause down by the river, an unthinkable sight:

    Innocent lives were taken in the night.

    Now someone's gotta die 'cause that'll make it right.

    I heard someone say it: there's gonna be a hangin' tonight.

    Something is wrong, because the evidence

    Cannot be allowed to prove their innocence.

    The law fueled the anger, the prejudice and hate.

    It's trial by fury now; it's justice too late.

    It's an eye for an eye, 'cause that'll make it right.

    I heard someone say it: there's gonna be a hangin' tonight.

    But the truth is disguised behind a veil of lies.

    They're turnin' their heads and they're closin' their eyes.

    There's gonna be a hangin' tonight.

    Well, it's easy to see reasonable doubt.

    Justice can't be served until the day they're out.

    No one seems to care and no one wants to know

    That they should be runnin' free instead o' sittin' on death row.

    In their minds they got it figured right:

    That ain't justice, 'cause justice is hangin' tonight.

    But the truth is disguised behind a veil of lies.

    They're turnin' their heads and they're closin' their eyes.

    There's gonna be a hangin' tonight.

    Yes, the truth is disguised behind a veil of lies.

    They're turnin' their heads and they're closin' their eyes.

    There's gonna be a hangin' tonight.
