Hiram Hubbard Come gather round me children and a story I will tell Come gather round me children and a story I will tell Concerning poor Hiram Hubbard, and how he came and fell While traveling through this country in sorrow and distress (2x) The rebels overhauled him, and in chains they bound him fast They whopped him up the mountain and they whopped him up the hill To that place of execution where he begged to write his will Farewell kind friends and neighbors, likewise my wife and child I never hurt nobody, but now I'm bound to die Well they bound the chains around him and they tied him to a tree Eleven balls went through him and then he sank away Hiram Hubbard was not guilty, I've heard great many say He was not in this country, he was ninety miles away DT #367 Laws A20 recorded by Joe Hickerson SOF
