Sting - I Hung My Head chords

      
Capo on 1st

Intro:  A   F#m

A F#mEarly one morning, with time to kill
A F#mI borrowed Jeb's rifle, and sat on the hill
A F#mI saw a lone rider, crossing the plane
A F#mI drew a beed on him, to practice my aim
Bm EMy Brother's rifle went off in my hand
E AA shot rang out across the land
D F#m7The horse he kept running, the rider was dead
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
A F#m I set off running, to wake from the dream
A F#mMy brother's rifle, went into the stream
A F#mI kept on running, in-to the salt lands
A F#mAnd that's where they found me, my head in my hands
Bm EThe sheriff he asked me, why had I run
E AThen it came to me, just what I had done
D F#m7And all for no reason, just one piece of lead
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
BREAK: A F#m D A
A F#mHere in the courthouse, the whole town is there
A F#mI see the judge, high up in his chair
A F#m"Explain to the courtroom, what went through your mind
A F#mAnd we'll ask the jury, what verdict they find"
Bm EI said "I felt the power, of death over life
E AI orphaned his children, I widowed his wife
D F#m7I beg their forgiveness, I wish I was dead"
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
BREAK: A F#m D A
A F#mEarly one morning, with time to kill
A F#mI see the gallows, up on the hill
A F#mAnd out in the distance, a trick of the brain
A F#m I see a lone rider, crossing the plain
Bm EHe's come to fetch me, to see what they done
E AWe'll ride together, 'Til kingdom come
D F#m7I pray for God's mercy, for soon I'll be dead
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
A F#mI hung my head, I hung my head
