They say John Hardy was a bad man

Low down and desperate too

But you don't see the dark

That lurks in the heart, until you do

By then it's always too late

And somebody's got to pay

In this case a man

Who tried to steal a ham and get away

“The love you gave me, couldn't save me”

From his lips to god, he whispered

“Don't you count on me

“Don't you count on me”

I've done you wrong

A mother's son is gone

In one hand he held his pistol steady

In the other, his drink, so well

He toasted his friends

“I'll see you all again, someday in hell

He made his way to Virginia

They caught him on the track

Shackled and chained

They threw him on a train and sent him back

“The love you gave me, couldn't save me”

From his lips to god, he whispered

“Don't you count on me

“Don't you count on me”

I've done you wrong

A mother's son is gone

In prison he started to praying

Was washed at the river bank

The sentence handed out

Left him little doubt that he would hang

And the good people came in from miles

The biggest crowd this town had ever seen

And when the preacher sang

We saw John Hardy hang, we were redeemed

“The love I gave you, couldn't save you”

From the lips of god, who whispered

“Don't you count on me

“Don't you count on me”

I've done you wrong

A mother's son is gone

Come home (come home)

Come home (come home)

Poor boy, won't you come home

Come home (come home)

Come home (come home)

Poor boy, won't you come home
