Intro--  c, and f a few times

[C] early one morning
with [F] time to kill
I [Am]borrowed Jeb’s rifle
And [F]sat on the hil
I [c] saw a lone rider
[F] crossing the plain
I [Am] drew a bead on him
To [F] practice my aim
[Dm] my brothers rifle
went [G] in my hand
a shot rang out
[C] across the land
the [F] horse he kept running
the [Am] rider was dead
I [C]hung my head, I [F] hung my head

[C] , [F] a few times

[C] I set off running 
to [F]wake from the dream
[Am] my brothers rifle 
went [F] into the stream
[C] I kept on running
[F]into the salt lands
and [Am] that’s where there found me
my [F] head in my hands
the [Dm] sheriff he asked me
[G] why had I run
then it came to me
just [C] what I had done
and [F] for all no reason
just [Am] one piece of lead
I [C]hung my head, I [F] hung my head

[C], [F] a few times

[C]Here in the courthouse
the [F] whole town is there
[Am] I see the judge
high [F] up in his chair
ex[C]plain to the courtroom
what [F] went through your mind
and [Am] we’ll ask the jury
what [F] verdict they find
I said [Dm] I felt the power
of [G] death over life
I orphaned his children
I [C] widowed his wife
I [F] beg their forgivness
I [Am] wish I was dead
I [C]hung my head, I [F] hung my head

[C] and [F] a few times

[C] Early one morning 
with [F] time to kill
[Am] I see the gallows
[F] up on the hill
and [C] out in the distance
a [F] trick of the brain
I [Am] see a lone rider 
[F] Crossing the plain
[Dm] hes come to fetch me 
to [G] see what they done
we’ll ride together 
[C] til kingdom come
I [F] prey for Gods mercy
For [F] soon ill be dead
I [C]hung my head, I [F] hung my head
I [C]hung my head, I [F] hung my head

[C] and [F] a few times and end on [C]
