‘'Tom Dooley’ is an old American folk song about the 1866 murder of a woman named Laura Foster in Wilkes County. It was allegedly committed by Tom Dula ; a local poet named Thomas Land wrote a song about the tragedy, titled ‘Tom Dooley’ shortly after Dula (which was pronounced “Dooley”) went to the gallows.''

lyrics

Lay down your head Tom Dooley
Lay down your head and cry
Lay down your head Tom Dooley
oh boy you're going to die

I meet her on the mountain
There I took her life
Meet her on the mountain
Stabbed her with my knife

Lay down your head Tom Dooley
Lay down your head and cry
Lay down your head Tom Dooley
Oh boy you're going to die

By this time tomorrow
Reckon you will be
Down in some lonesome valley
Hanging from a wide oak tree

Lay down your head Tom Dooley
Lay down your head and cry
Lay down your head Tom Dooley
Oh boy you're going to die

Lay down, lay down,
To die, to die.

All lyrics and music Frank Parfitt.
