THE HANGING TREE (Mack David / Jerry Livingston) Frankie Laine Also recorded by: Marty Robbins I came to town to search for gold And I brought with me a memory And I seem to hear the night wind cry Go hang your dreams on the hanging tree Your dreams of love that could never be Hang your fated dreams on the hanging tree I searched for gold, and I found my gold And I found a girl who loved just me And I wish that I could love her too But I'd left my heart on the hanging tree I'd left my heart with the memory And a fated dream on the hanging tree Now there were men who craved my gold And they meant to take my gold from me When a man is gone, he needs no gold So they carried me to the hanging tree To join my dreams and the memory Yes they carried me to the hanging tree To really live, you must almost die And it happened just that way with me They took the gold and they set me free And I walked away from the hanging tree I walked away from the hanging tree And my own true love, oh yes she walked with me That's when I knew that the hanging tree Was a tree of life, new life for me A tree of hope to hope for me A tree of love to love for me The hanging tree The hanging tree The hanging tree.
