-7 7  -7  6 -5 5   -3   7   -6 5 -3
Early one morning with time to kill
-3  6  -5    5    -5 6
 I borrowed Jeb's rifle
-3  -5  5  -3  5 -3
And sat on the hill
4  6 -5  5   -5 6   -5  5   -3   5 -3
I saw a lone rider crossing the plain
-3  6  -5  5   -5  6
 I drew a bead on him
-3  -5  5   -3 5 -3
To practice my aim
6   -5   5   6 -5   4    6  -5 5   -5
My brother's rifle went off in my hand
4   6   -5  5 -5 4  6   -5   5
A shot rang out  across the land
 5   -7   7   -6   7  -7
The horse he kept running,
-3  -5 5  -3   -3
The rider was dead
-3  5   5   5   -3   5   5   5
 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
