Intro:  A  D  F#m D

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


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

BREAK:    A   D  F#m   D

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

BREAK:    A  D  F#m  D

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