I Hung My Head
By Johnny Cash
Words and music by Sting

From the album American 4: The Man Comes Around 

Intro - C, F handful of times

(C)Early one morning
With (F)time to kill
I (Am)borrowed Jeb's rifle
And (F)sat on the hill
I (C)saw a lone rider
(F)Crossing the plain
I (Am)drew a bead on him
To (F)practice my aim
(Dm)My brother's rifle
Went (G)off in my hand
A shot rang out
(C)Across the land
The (F)horse he kept running
The (Am)rider was dead
I (C)hung my head I (F)hung my head
(C)I set off running
To (F)wake from the dream
(Am)My brother's rifle
Went (F)into the stream
(C)I kept on running
(F)Into the salt lands
And (Am)that's where they found me
My (F)head in my hands
The (Dm)sheriff he asked me
(G)Why had I run
Then it came to me
Just (C)what I had done
And (F)all for no reason
Just (Am)one piece of lead
I (C)hung my head I (F)hung my head
(C)Here in the courthouse
The (F)whole town is there
(Am)I see the judge
High (F)up in his chair
"Ex(C)plain to the courtroom
What (F)went through your mind
And (Am)we'll ask the jury
What (F)verdict they find"
I said (Dm)"I felt the power
Of (G)death over life
I orphaned his children
I (C)widowed his wife
I (F)beg their forgiveness
I (Am)wish I was dead"
I (C)hung my head, I (F)hung my head
(C)Early one morning
With (F)time to kill
(Am)I see the gallows
(F)Up on the hill
And (C)out in the distance
A (F)trick of the brain
I (Am)see a lone rider
(F)Crossing the plain
(Dm)He's come to fetch me
To (G)see what they done
We'll ride together
(C)'Til kingdom come
I (F)pray for God's mercy
For (F)soon I'll be dead
I (C)hung my head, I (F)hung my head
I (C)hung my head, I (F)hung my head
I (C)hung my head, I (F)hung my head
(C, F over and over, then End on C)
