(Tom Paxton)

Am C Am
Now the High Sheriff of Hazard is a hard working man.
To be a fine sheriff is his only plan.
Am C Am
With his hands in our pockets he takes what he can,
C E7 Am
For he's the High Sheriff of Hazard.

He looked through my pockets, and searched them with care,
But nary a nickel or penny was there.
