As usual try and see past the vocal performance.

Hangman Blues

V1:
Waiting on the hangman
Trap door at my feet
It wont be long – I done my wrong
My maker I will meet

V2:
Waiting on the hangman
Preacher save my soul
I done my wrong – it wont be long
I think its time to go.

Chorus: 2xs
Hang – man
Blues

V3
Yeah – Waiting on the hangman
Sack tied round my head
My hands are bound – my feet are tied
I guess I made my bed

V4
No more waiting on the hangman
No more I’ll have to wait
I hear the door – I stand no more
I pray my neck will break

Chorus: 2xs
Hang – man
Blues

V5:
Now – I’m just waiting on the reaper
Just hanging till I’m dead
Just waiting on the reaper
Guess this is the end

Chorus: 3xs
Hang – man
Blues

I really like the way you repeat, rhyme and slightly change the verses. The slide guitar mixed with the finger picking really adds to the mood of the song; it fits. My critique is on your last verse. The strength of, for me, your song is in the repeat, rhyme and slight changes, so, in your last verse, for me, it’s kind of a let down to miss the rhyme. Anything could work:

Now – I’m just waiting on the reaper
Just hanging till I’m dead
Just waiting on the reaper
No one remembers the words I said.

Now – I’m just waiting on the reaper
Just hanging for my sins
Just waiting on the reaper
Guess this is the end

Anyway, again, I liked the song, just thought should should stay consistent ’till the end.

Not bad. I may use that.

    nice tune!! love your style and picking…I agree with Bob about the last verse

    idea…
    Now,I’m just waiting on the reaper
    to send me to my destiny
    I’m waiting for the reaper
    hell is waiting for me
