The hanging reference seems like a possibility as the character's obviously on the run from something - 'Left Tennessee in a hurry' 'Thinking of leaving another town' 'No place to go if he did' 'Catch you wherever you're hid'- and there's no clue about what he's running from.    Something capital? Everyone reads different things into lyrics/poetry!
