INTRO

G                      C
Early one morning with time to kill
  Em                   C
I borrowed a rifle and sat on a hill
  G                C
I saw a lone rider crossing the plain
  Em                    C
I drew a bead on him to practice my aim

Am                      D
My brother's rifle went off in my hand
  D              G
A shot rang out across the land
    C                          Em
The horse, it kept running the rider was dead
  G               C              | Em | C |
I hung my head, I hung my head

G                    C
I set off running to wake from my dream
Em                      C
My brother's rifle went into the stream
G                   C
I kept on running into the south lands
Em                             C
That's where they found me, my head in my hands

    Am                  D
The sheriff he asked me why had I run
    D                       G
And then it came to me just what I had done
    C                      Em
And all for no reason just one piece of lead
  G               C              | Em | C |
I hung my head, I hung my head

SOLO

G                           C
Here in the court house the whole town was there
Em                   C
I see the judge high up in his chair
   G                            C
"Explain to the court room what went through your mind
    Em                      C
And we'll ask the jury what verdict they find"

Am               D
I felt the power of death and life
  D                        G
I orphaned his children, I widowed his wife
  C                        Em
I beg their forgiveness, I wish I were dead
  G               C              | Em | C |
I hung my head, I hung my head

SOLO

G                      C
Early one morning with time to kill
Em                     C
I see the gallows high up on a hill
    G                      C
And out in the distance, a trick of the brain
  Em               C
I see a lone rider crossing the plain

Am                       D
He's come to fetch me to see what they've done
    D                   G
And we'll ride together to kingdom come
  C                          Em
I prayed for god's mercy for soon I'll be dead
  G             C       Em           C
I hung my head,       I hung my head
  G              C  | Em | C |
I hung my head
