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


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


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


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

if your hands are too small to play e (mine are too, dont worry) try e7

ukulelekid

not all the lyrics are the same as the original song.that makes me a bit up set because i freaking love this song.

PurpleRose

There’s another version here with a bit different lyrics by the original composer.

-5 is a lot easier, and it works better with lower female voices! Good luck, hope this helps!

i use e7 instead of e and it sounds more mysterious

Autumn

Instead of playing the hard to learn E chord I just used E7 and it sounded great!

Anna

Amazing! I did E7 instead of E, many did DU but on some of the last chords in each line just did one D strum. I love this song so much I’ll put it down here!
1- Am DU, Dm DU
2- Am DUDU, E7 D
3- Am DUDUDU, Dm D
4-E7 DUDU, Am D
5- Am DUDU, F DUDU
6- Am DUDU, E7 D
7- Am DU, Am D, Dm U, Dm D (hard!)
8- E7 DUDU, Am D

Chloe

I play e differently then the way they show it on here. I do my first finger on first string second fret, my second finger on fourth string fourth fret, third finger third string fourth fret and fourth finger on second string fourth fret. It sounds exactly the same but its way easier.

nadia_sophie

for the people who cannot play E (like me lmao):
put your:
1 finger – string A on the second fret
2 finger – string G on the fourth fret
3 finger – string C on the fourth fret

SteveJobs4Dayz

oh my… you’re a wizard nadia_sophie…

Morgan Buck

woah that’s even harder for me haha

HELLO!!

same :]

UkeStar

I really like this song… I also used E7 instead of E and it sounded great! Plus, I used the strumming pattern D DD.

Papa

the strumming pattern that I use and works really well with this song is D DDU
