I Hung My Head
--------------


---> Capo on 3rd Fret !!!


Gadd9     3-x-0-2-0-3
Cadd9     x-3-2-0-3-3
Emadd9    0-2-2-0-0-2
Dadd11/C  x-0-0-0-1-2
D7        x-0-0-2-1-2


Gadd9                  Cadd9
Early one morning with time to kill
  Emadd9                   Cadd9
I borrowed Jeb's rifle and sat on the hill
  Gadd9            Cadd9
I saw a lone rider crossing the plain
  Emadd9                Cadd9
I drew a bead on him to practice my aim


Am                 Dadd11/C
My brother's rifle went off in my hand
D7               Gadd9
A shot rang out across the land
    Cadd9                      Emadd9
The horse he kept running, the rider was dead
  Gadd9           Cadd9
I hung my head, I hung my head



I set off running to wake from the dream
And my brother's rifle went into the stream
I kept on running into the salt lands
And that's where they found me, my head in my hands

The sheriff he asked me "Why had I run"
Then it came to me just what I had done
And all for no reason, just one piece of lead
I hung my head, I hung my head



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"
I hung my head, I hung my head



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

He's come to fetch me to see what they done
We'll ride together til Kingdom come
I pray for God's mercy for soon I'll be dead
I hung my head, I hung my head
