INTRO: Bb  Gm   Eb Cm  Gm  Bb Eb  2x

VERSE:

 Bb                 Gm     Eb
  Early one morning,  with time to kill
Cm   Gm                   Bb   Eb
  I  borrowed Jeb's rifle, and sat on the hill
    Bb               Gm  Eb
  I saw a lone rider,   Crossing the plain
Cm  Gm                 Bb   Eb
  I drew a bead on him,  To practice my aim
Cm                   Cm/Bb  F
  My brother's rifle,  Went off in my hand
F/G  F           F/A  F/F  Bb
  A shot rang out        across the land
      Eb                    Cm   Gm
  The horse he kept running, the rider was dead 
Eb  Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head,  I hung my head


VERSE:


 Bb                 Gm   Eb                   Cm
  I set off running,  to wake from the dream
 Gm                   Bb     Eb
  My brother's rifle,  went into the stream
 Bb                 Gm  Eb
  I kept on running, in-to the salt lands
Cm    Gm                         Bb  Eb
  And that's where they found me, my head in my hands
Cm                        Cm/Bb F               F/G
  The sheriff he asked me,      Why had I run
  F                 F/A  F/F    Bb
  Then it came to me,      just what I had done
      Eb                 Cm   Gm
  And all for no reason, just one piece of lead
 Eb Bb           Gm  Eb
  I hung my head, I hung my head

BREAK: Bb Gm  Eb  Cm   Gm  Bb  Eb 2x


VERSE:

  Here in the courthouse, the whole town is there
  I see the judge, High up in his chair
 "Explain to the courtroom, what went through your mind
  And we'll ask the jury, what verdict they find"
  I said "I felt the power, of death over life
  I orphaned his children, I widowed his wife
  I beg their forgiveness, I wish I was dead"
Eb Bb           Gm  Eb
  I hung my head, I hung my head
Cm  Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head, I hung my head

BREAK:  Bb Gm  Eb  Cm   Gm  Bb  Eb 2x

VERSE:

 Bb                 Gm     Eb
  Early one morning,  with time to kill
Cm  Gm              Bb Eb
  I see the gallows,   up on the hill
      Bb                 Gm   Eb
  And out in the distance,  a trick of the brain
Cm  Gm               Bb Eb
  I see a lone rider,   crossing the plain
Cm                      Cm/Bb F                  F/G
  He's come to fetch me,   to see what they done
  F                   F/A  F/F   Bb
  We'll ride together, '     Til kingdom come
    Eb                   Cm    Gm
  I pray for God's mercy,  for soon I'll be dead
Eb  Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head,  I hung my head
    Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head, I hung my head
    Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head, I hung my head
    Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head, I hung my head
    Bb           Gm  Eb           Cm
  I hung my head, I hung my head
