The Hanging Tree

Song Author Jerry Livingston og Mack David Performer: Marty Robbins Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I came to town to [Am]search for gold
And I [C]brought with me a [G7]memory
And seem to [Am]hear the night [C]wind cry
Go [Am]hang your dreams on [C]the hanging tree
Your [Am]dreams of love that could [C]never be
Hang your faded [G7]dreams on the [C]hanging tree

I searched for gold and I [Am]found my gold
And I found [C]a girl who [G7]loved just me
And I [Am]wish that I could love [C]her too
But I [Am]left my heart on [C]the hanging tree
I left [Am]my heart with a [C]memory
And a faded [G7]dream on the [C]hanging tree

Now there were men who [Am]craved my gold
And meant [C]to take my [G7]gold from me
When a [Am]man is gone he [C]needs no gold
So they [Am]carried me to [C]the hanging tree
To join [Am]my dreams and a [C]memory
Yes they carried [G7]me to the [C]hanging tree

To really live you [Am]must almost die
And it happened [C]just that [G7]way with me
They [Am]took my gold and [C]set me free
And [Am]I walked away from [C]the hanging tree
I [Am]walked away from [C]the hanging tree
And my own [G7]true love she [C]walked with me

That’s [F]when I knew that [G7]the hanging tree
Was a [F]tree of life new [C]life for me
A [F]tree of hope new [C]hope for me
A [F]tree of love new [C]love for me

The hanging tree [F]the hanging tree the [C]hanging tree

I came to town to search for gold
And I brought with me a memory
And seem to hear the night wind cry
Go hang your dreams on the hanging tree
Your dreams of love that could never be
Hang your faded dreams on the hanging tree

I searched for gold and I found my gold
And I found a girl who loved just me
And I wish that I could love her too
But I left my heart on the hanging tree
I left my heart with a memory
And a faded dream on the hanging tree

Now there were men who craved my gold
And meant to take my gold from me
When a man is gone he needs no gold
So they carried me to the hanging tree
To join my dreams and a memory
Yes they carried me to the hanging tree

To really live you must almost die
And it happened just that way with me
They took my gold and set me free
And I walked away from the hanging tree
I walked away from the hanging tree
And my own true love she walked with me

That’s when I knew that the hanging tree
Was a tree of life new life for me
A tree of hope new hope for me
A tree of love new love for me

The hanging tree the hanging tree the hanging tree
