Am       Dm
Are you, are you
Am             E7
Coming to the tree
     Am          Dm
They strung up a man
     G                Am
They say who murdered three.
Am                 F
Strange things did happen here
      Am             Em
No stranger would it be
      Am      Dm
If we met at midnight
E7             Am
In the hanging tree.


 Am       Dm
Are you, are you
Am             E7
Coming to the tree
      Am              Dm
Where dead man called out
 G           Am
For his love to flee.
Am                 F
Strange things did happen here
      Am             Em
No stranger would it be
      Am      Dm
If we met at midnight
E7             Am
In the hanging tree.


    Am       Dm
Are you, are you
Am             E7
Coming to the tree
       Am            Dm
Where I told you to run,
 G              Am
So we'd both be free.
Am                 F
Strange things did happen here
      Am             Em
No stranger would it be
      Am      Dm
If we met at midnight
E7             Am
In the hanging tree.


    Am       Dm
Are you, are you
Am             E7
Coming to the tree
       Am            Dm
Wear a necklace of rope,
 G           Am
Side by side with me.
Am                 F
Strange things did happen here
      Am             Em
No stranger would it be
      Am      Dm
If we met at midnight
E7             Am
In the hanging tree.

    D, UDU

  3. I use DD for one chord, U for the other, and back to DD. This is a more dramatic sound.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
