[Intro]

D


[Chorus]

 D                   G                 D 
Hang me, oh, hang me, I'll be dead and gone
           Bm         G               D 
Hang me, oh, hang me, I'll be dead and gone
                   Bm 
I wouldn't mind the hangin'
          D                    Bm 
But, the layin' in the grave so long, poor boy
      Bb       A       D 
I been all around this world


[Verse]

 D                          G              D 
I been all around Cape Jerdo, parts of Arkansas
                      Bm        G           D 
I been all around Cape Jerdo, parts of Arkansas
                  Bm 
I got so goddamned hungry
          D             Bm 
I could hide behind a straw, poor boy
     Bb      A       D 
I been all around this world

 D                     G               D 
Went up on a mountain, there I made my stand
            Bm         G               D 
Went up on a mountain, there I made my stand
            Bm 
A rifle on my shoulder
      D            Bm 
And a dagger in my hand, poor boy
     Bb        A        D 
I been all around this world


[Chorus]

 D                    G                 D 
So, hang me, oh, hang me, I'll be dead and gone
            Bm           G              D 
Hang me, oh, hang me and I'll be dead and gone
                  Bm 
I wouldn't mind the hangin'
          D                   Bm 
But, the layin' in the grave so long, poor boy
    Bb       A        D 
I been all around this world


[Verse]

 D                                   G            D 
Put the rope around my neck, they hung me up so high
           Bm                  G            D 
Put the rope around my neck and hung me up so high
               Bm 
The last words I heard 'em say
          D              Bm 
Won't be long now 'fore ya die, poor boy
      Bb    A           D 
I been all around this world


[Chorus]

 D                    G                 D 
So, hang me, oh, hang me, I'll be dead and gone
            Bm           G              D 
Hang me, oh, hang me and I'll be dead and gone
                  Bm 
I wouldn't mind the hangin'
          D                   Bm 
But, the layin' in the grave so long, poor boy
    Bb       A        D 
I been all around this world


[Outro]

Bb   A   D

In the movie he plays this with a capo on 2. So if you want to play it how he does in the movie, throw a capo on 2 and transpose this down one full step (two half steps).

Yes, I like to play it with a capo on the 2nd fret too. Sounds good either way, but I think the chord changes are a bit easier with the capo.

For capo 2 your finger positions change (D to C), (G to F), (Bm to Am), (Bb to Ab) and (A to G).
