The Hanging Tree
Recorded by Marty Robbins
written by Jerry Livingston and Mack David

C                 Am               
I came to town to search for gold
      C                 G7      
And I brought with me a memory
            Am             C        
And seem to hear the night wind cry
   Am                  C               
Go hang your dreams on the hanging tree
     Am                        C        
Your dreams of love that could never be
                G7            C               
Hang your faded dreams on the hanging tree

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

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

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

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

                 F                    C                
The hanging tree the hanging tree the hanging tree
