Intro:  A   F#m

A                       F#m
Early one morning, with time to kill
A                           F#m
I borrowed Jeb's rifle, and sat on the hill
A                    F#m
I saw a lone rider, crossing the plane
A                        F#m
I drew a beed on him, to practice my aim
Bm                      E
My Brother's rifle went off in my hand
    E             A
A shot rang out across the land
    D                          F#m7
The horse he kept running, the rider was dead
A                 F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head


A                     F#m  
I set off running, to wake from the dream
A                        F#m
My brother's rifle, went into the stream
A                     F#m
I kept on running, in-to the salt lands
A                                  F#m
And that's where they found me, my head in my hands
Bm                        E
The sheriff he asked me, why had I run
E                        A
Then it came to me, just what I had done
    D                       F#m7
And all for no reason, just one piece of lead
A                 F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head

BREAK:    A   F#m   D   A

A                           F#m
Here in the courthouse, the whole town is there
A                     F#m
I see the judge, high up in his chair
A                               F#m
"Explain to the courtroom, what went through your mind
A                            F#m
And we'll ask the jury, what verdict they find"
        Bm                   E
I said "I felt the power, of death over life
  E                        A
I orphaned his children, I widowed his wife
  D                        F#m7
I beg their forgiveness, I wish I was dead"
A                 F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head
A                 F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head

BREAK:    A  F#m  D   A

A                       F#m
Early one morning, with time to kill
A                     F#m
I see the gallows, up on the hill
A                          F#m
And out in the distance, a trick of the brain
A                       F#m 
I see a lone rider, crossing the plain
Bm                        E
He's come to fetch me, to see what they done
E                     A
We'll ride together, 'Til kingdom come
  D                         F#m7
I pray for God's mercy, for soon I'll be dead
A               F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head
A               F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head
A               F#m
I hung my head, I hung my head
