The Hanging Tree

From the Movie "The Hanging Tree"
Performed by Marty Robbins

I came to town to search for gold
And I brought with me a memory
And I seem to hear the nightly cry
Go hanging your dream on the hanging tree
Your dreams of love that could never be
Hang your faith of dream on the hanging tree

I search for gold and I found my gold
And I found the girl who love just me
And I wish that I could love her too
But I left my heart on the hanging tree
I left my heart with the memory
And the fiath of dream on the hanging tree

Now there'll meant who grave my gold
And man to take my gold for me
When a man is gone, he needs no gold
So they carried me to the hanging tree
To join my dream and memory
Yes they carried me to the hanging tree

To really live you must almost die
And it happen just that way with me
They took for gold and set me free
And I walk away from the hanging tree
I walk away from the hanging gree
And my own true love
She'll walk with me
That's when I knew that the hanging tree
Was a tree of life new life for me
A tree of hope new hope for me
A tree of love new love for me
The hanging tree, the haning tree
The hanging tree
