本曲大意

这首歌在描述一个男女之间的三角关系。Tom Dooley大概没有 Mr. Grayson那么地有魅力吧?!以致于女朋友被抢走。在『宁为玉碎,不为瓦全』的崇高原则之下,Tom Dooley索性就将他女朋友给宰了。诸位读者,万一你(你)也有类似这样的三角关系发生时,如果你(你)的对手的个性跟Tom Dooley很像的话,赶快跑,免得你(你)的对手索性一不作二不休,把你(你)也干掉。

英文歌词

(Spoken) Throughout history, there have been many songs written about the eternal triangle. This next one tells the story of a Mr. Grayson, and a beautiful woman, and a condemned man named Tom Dooley. When the sun rises tomorrow, Tom Dooley must hang.

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley. Hang down your head and cry. Hang down your head, Tom Dooley. Poor boy, youre bound to die.

I met her on the mountain─there I took her life. Met her on the mountain, stabbed her with my knife.

This time tomorrow, reckon where Ill be. Hadnt it been for Grayson, Id have been in Tennessee.

This time tomorrow, reckon where Ill be. Down in some lonesome valley, hangin from a white oak tree.

Poor boy, youre bound to die...

歌词翻译

(口白)环顾历史,有许多歌曲描写着男女三角关系的故事。下面的故事便是叙述着一位格瑞森先生与一位漂亮的女士,以及一位被判罪的男人汤姆‧杜利三个人的故事。当明天的太阳升起时,汤姆‧杜利就得被吊死了。

低下你的头吧,汤姆‧杜利。低下你的头并且哭泣吧!低下你的头吧,汤姆‧杜利。你必须得死啦,可怜的小子。

我在山上和她见面──我就是在那儿夺走她的性命的。当我在山中和她见面时,我用我的刀子刺了她。

我在想,明天的这个时候我会在哪里。要不是格瑞森的话,我现在可能已经在田纳西州了。

我在想,明天的这个时我会在哪里。也许在偏僻的山谷里,我就在那里被吊死在一棵白色的橡树上。

可怜的小子,你必须得死啦……。
