Tom Dooley Chords
I disagree with the other three tabs for this song. Here is the way that sounds right to me:

Tom Dooley

During the into and breaks between verses, you should alternate between E and Esus4 by 
your baby finger up and down on the C# (fifth string, fret 2) while holding the E chord 
traditional form.

E
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        Fm
Hang down your head and cry,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        E
Poor boy, your bound to die,

E
I met her on the mountain,
                     Fm
and there I took her life,

Met her on the mountain,
                    E
stabbed her with my knife,

E
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                       Fm
Hang down your head and cry,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        E
Poor boy, your bound to die,

E
This time tomorrow,
                 Fm
reckon' where I'd be,

Hadn't been for Grayson,
                  E
I'd been in Tennessee,


E
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                       Fm
Hang down your head and cry,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        E
Poor boy, your bound to die,


E
This time tomorrow,
                  Fm
reckon' where I'll be,

Down in some lonesome valley,
                        E
hangin' from a wide oak tree,


E
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        Fm
Hang down your head and cry,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        E
Poor boy, your bound to die,

E
Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                       Fm
Hang down your head and cry,

Hang down your head Tom Dooley,
                        E
Poor boy, your bound to die.
