Blue Highway
I Hung My Head (1999)
(Sting)

From: "Blue Highway"

Hello ukulele players! I originally submitted this as a guitar tab 
but UG automatically added my submission to their ukulele tabs. 
I now edited it a little and hope it works for ukulele, too. 
But I'm not sure whether the chords I suggest make sense for the ukulele. 
If you have any suggestions to make as to how to improve this tab, 
don't hesitate to send a message. Enjoy!

INTRO
| F | F | Dm | F | 
| F | F | Dm | F | 

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

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

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

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

SOLO
| F | F | Dm | F | 
| F | F | Dm | F | 

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

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

SOLO
| Dm | G | F | F | Dm | F |
| F | F | Dm | F | 
| Dm | G | G | F | F | Dm |
| F | F | Dm | F |

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

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