    Who else likes this song? Here are the lyrics:

    Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
    Think I see my friends coming, Riding a many mile.
    Friends, did you get some silver?
    Did you get a little gold?
    What did you bring me, my dear friends, To keep me from the Gallows Pole?
    What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

    I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold,
    You know that we're too damn poor to keep you from the Gallows Pole.
    Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
    I think I see my brother coming, riding a many mile.
    Brother, did you get me some silver?
    Did you get a little gold?
    What did you bring me, my brother, to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

    Brother, I brought you some silver,
    I brought a little gold, I brought a little of everything
    To keep you from the Gallows Pole.
    Yes, I brought you to keep you from the Gallows Pole.

    Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile,
    I think I see my sister coming, riding a many mile, mile, mile.
    Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand,
    Take him to some shady bower, save me from the wrath of this man,
    Please take him, save me from the wrath of this mad man.

    Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile,
    Pray tell me that I'm free to ride,
    Ride for many mile, mile, mile.

    Oh, yes, you got a fine sister, She warmed my blood from cold,
    SHE WARMED MY blood to boiling hot To keep you from the Gallows Pole,
    Your brother brought me silver, Your sister warmed my soul,
    But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swinging on the Gallows Pole

    But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swining on the Gallows Pole!

    Swingin' on the gallows pole!



    I love this song mostly because of the acoustic guitars, mandolins and banjos in it.

    Zeppelin rocks...

    I heard that song many,many times--sober,stoned,drunk,and on many other mind altering substances..it rocks no matter WHAT state of mind your in!..I actually heard that song when it first came out,my older sister had the album..its engraved in my brain(or whats left of it :haha: ) permanently,as are many of Led Zeppelin's tunes..I liked them not only for their lyrics,but their ability to actually play the instruments,and play them well..they were masters of their instruments,and Robert Plant's voice was a great compliment to the band..no other rock band can beat them ,as far as I'm concerned!. :D

    What other tunes by them are your favorites??--here's a few of mine..

    "Whole Lotta Love"
    "The Ocean"
    "No Quarter"
    "Moby Dick"
    "The Lemon Song"
    "Stairway To Heaven"
    "Ramble On"

    I will just end up listing every song they did!--I have a lot of their albums,and cassettes,though they are well worn!.."Led Zeppelin","Houses Of The Holy",the "4 Sticks" album,etc.. My all time favorite is my theme song..

    "DAZED AND CONFUSED"!!!

    :eek1: :confused: :dunno: :screwy: :eek:
