"Long Black Veil" is a song 'sung by a ghost' (i.e., the narrator of the story is telling the tale from his grave, after he has been hanged).
Scots children's song "The Happy Land" (recorded by Robin Hall and Jimmie MacGregor).
There is a happy land down in Duke Street jail
Where all the prisoners stand tied to a nail.
Ham and eggs they never see, and dirty water for their tea
And there they live in misery.
God save the queen!.
The Glasgow Corporation came wi' a brand noo plan.
They're building tenement hooses noo down in the happy land,
But there's 16 murderers buried there,
So watch yoursel' and dinna stare
or a ghost'll com oot and grab you by the hair!
God save the queen!
