C 
Early one morning 
     F 
With time to kill 
   Am 
I borrowed Jebb's rifle 
    F 
And sat on a hill 
  C 
I saw a lone rider 
F 
Crossing the plain 
   Am 
I drew a bead on him 
     F 
To practice my aim 

Dm 
My brother's rifle 
     G 
Went of in my hand 
   G 
A shot rang out 
  C 
Across the land 
     F 
The horse, he kept running 
     Am 
The rider was dead 
  C 
I hung my head 
  F 
I hung my head 

  C 
I set off running 
   F 
To wake from the dream 
Am 
My brother's rifle 
      F 
Went into the sheen 
   C 
I kept on running 
  F 
Into the south lands 
        Am 
That's where they found me 
    F 
My head and my hands 

    Dm 
The sheriff he asked me 
G 
Why had I run 
     G 
And then it came to me 
     C 
Just what I had done 
    F 
And all for no reason 
     Am 
Just one peace of lead 
  C 
I hung my head 
  F 
I hung my head 

C 
Here in the court house 
     F 
The whole town was there 
Am 
I see the judge 
   F 
High up in the chair 
    C 
Explain to the court room 
        F 
What went through you mind 
     Am 
And we'll ask the jury 
       F 
What verdict they find 

Dm 
I felt the power 
    G 
Of death over life 
    G 
I orphaned his children 
    C 
I widowed his wife 
    F 
I begged their forgiveness 
   Am 
I wish I was dead 
  C 
I hung my head 
  F 
I hung my head 
  C 
I hung my head 
  F 
I hung my head 

C 
Early one morning 
     F 
With time to kill 
Am 
I see the gallows 
F 
Up on a hill 
    C 
And out in the distance 
   F 
A trick of the brain 
   Am 
I see a lone rider 
   F 
Crossing the plain 

    Dm 
And he'd come to fetch me 
   G 
To see what they'd done 
    G 
And we'd ride together 
    C 
To kingdom come 
  F 
I prayed for god's mercy 
    Am 
For soon I'd be dead 
  C 
I hung my head 
  F 
I hung my head 
  C 
I hung my head 
  F 
I hung my head
