(HANG DOWN YOUR HEAD) TOM KOBY
(apologies to The Kingston Trio's "Tom Dooley")


Hang down your head Tom Koby,
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Koby
You know who but you'll never know why

Day after Christmas mornin'
A little girl found dead
I should have seen it sooner
I was in way over my head

Hang down your head Tom Koby,
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Koby
The DA thinks you're a creep

Dispatched a young lieutenant
Still wet behind her ears
Bungled the first few hours
Bonded with the suspect in tears

Hang down your head Tom Koby,
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head Tom Koby
Better find a nother job

Turned down the help from experts
All you need is common sense
Then they voted on me
My people have no confidence

Turn in your badge Tom Koby
Turn in your badge today
Turn in your badge Tom Koby
You probably let 'em get away
