I Hung My Head Songtext

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


Here in the courthouse, the whole town is there
And 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, I hung my head, I hung my head

Early one morning with time to kill
I see the gallows up on the hill
Out in the distance, a trick of the brain
I see a lone rider crossing the plain
Now he come to fetch me to see what they done
And 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, I hung my head, I hung my head
I hung my head, I hung my head, I hung my head, I hung my head
I hung my head, I hung my head, I hung my head, I hung my head
I hung my head, I hung my head, I hung my head, I hung my head
