Subject matter of lyrics[edit]

The Nancy Whiskey version of the lyrics tell a very dark tale of a man being taken for execution. The original lyrics are about death, but not quite to that extent. Some versions omit the death element of the lyrics, while others such as Chet Atkins' version play it safe and stay instrumental. I think this article needs a discussion of the different versions of the lyrics. (talk) 04:34, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
