Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
Jugband-flavored nylon fretless in key of A. Bernie made off with the money, left us all without any hope, Only thing that would make me feel better, to see him swinging from the edge of a rope. Whatever happened, happened to the gallows pole. Long time ago they put the stocks in the square, Waiting for the judge to say what was fair, They bound their head and hands, stood em on their feet Left them standing there for all the world to see. Whatever happened, happened to the gallows pole. Honest days work for an honest days pay Thats what the wisest men who walk among us say. They never understood how low a man could go Made themselves rich and left us all poor. Whatever happened, Happened to the gallows pole. Mister Bernanke says the Feds got a plan, Going to lead us all back to the Promised Land, They told us all to save for a rainy day, Then they stole all our money, dashed our dreams away. Whatever happened, happened to the gallows pole I'm only asking, what happened to the gallows pole.

This is how folk music begins ..... 100 years down the road, it will be sung by folk groups everywhere....
Add to the ranks of Beau Lampkins, Tom Dooley, Pretty Boy Floyd.
Good song of our times.

Only reason Bernie went to jail is because he ripped off a lot of rich and powerful people. The wall street boyz got gov't bailouts and bonuses. Sounds like an Uncle Dave Macon song!
