    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.

    i use e7 instead of e and it sounds more mysterious

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

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

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

  5. anyone know a way to change E? i cant do it, i think my hands are too small lol

  6. Jacqueline Abood

    I tried so hard to play an E but it is practically impossible for me so i play EM instead

  7. ukulelequeen

    instead of E i played G

  8. Hawaiian Born

    I ❤️ this song!

  9. Izzybizzybuzzybee

    If you find it a bit hard or want to learn it fast try replacing e with f and keep the rest the same. It still sounds good!

  10. The strumming pattern I used that worked well for me was or D D or D D U.
    I switched it throughout the song
