Em       Am
Are you, are you
Em             B7
Coming to the tree
     Em          Am
They strung up a man
     D                Em
They say who murdered three.
Em                 C
Strange things did happen here
      Em             Bm
No stranger would it be
      Em      Am
If we met at midnight
B7             Em
In the hanging tree.


 Em       Am
Are you, are you
Em             B7
Coming to the tree
      Em              Am
Where dead man called out
 D           Em
For his love to flee.
Em                 C
Strange things did happen here
      Em             Bm
No stranger would it be
      Em      Am
If we met at midnight
B7             Em
In the hanging tree.


    Em       Am
Are you, are you
Em             B7
Coming to the tree
       Em            Am
Where I told you to run,
 D              Em
So we'd both be free.
Em                 C
Strange things did happen here
      Em             Bm
No stranger would it be
      Em      Am
If we met at midnight
B7             Em
In the hanging tree.


    Em       Am
Are you, are you
Em             B7
Coming to the tree
       Em            Am
Wear a necklace of rope,
 D           Em
Side by side with me.
Em                 C
Strange things did happen here
      Em             Bm
No stranger would it be
      Em      Am
If we met at midnight
B7             Em
In the hanging tree.
