Lyrics:

Early one morning with time to kill
I borrowes Jeb's rifle and sat on the hill,
I saw a lone rider crossing the plain,
I drew a bead on him to practice my aim.
My brother's rifle went off in my hand,
a shot rang out across the land,
the horse he kept running, the rider was dead.
I hung my head
I hung my head
I set off running to wake from the dream.
My brother's rifle went into the stream.
I kept on running into the salt lands,
and that's where they found me, my head in my hands.
The sheriff he asked me why had I run.
Then it came to me just what I had done;
and all for no reason, just one piece of lead.
I hung my head
I hung my head
Here in the courthouse the whole town is there,
I see the judge high up in his chair,
"Explain to the courtroom what went through your mind,
and we'll ask the jury what verdict they find."
I said "I felt the power of death over life.
I orphaned his children, I widowed his wife.
I beg their forgiveness, I wish I was dead."
I hung my head
I hung my head
Early one morning with time to kill
I see the gallows up on the hill,
and out in the distance, a trick of the brain,
I see a lone rider crossing the plain.
He's come to fetch me to see what they done.
We'll ride together til Kingdom come.
I pray for God's mercy for soon I'll be dead,
I hung my head
I hung my head
