Early one morning with time to kill
I saw a lone rider crossing the plain
My brother's rifle went off in my hand
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
I kept on running into the salt lands
The sheriff he asked me "Why had I run"
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
"Explain to the courtroom what went through your mind
I said "I felt the power of death over life
I beg their forgiveness I wish I was dead"
I hung my head, I hung my head
Early one morning with time to kill
And out in the distance a trick of the brain
He's come to fetch me to see what they done
I pray for God's mercy for soon I'll be dead
I hung my head, I hung my headEarly one morning with time to kill
I saw a lone rider crossing the plain
My brother's rifle went off in my hand
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
I kept on running into the salt lands
The sheriff he asked me "Why had I run"
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
"Explain to the courtroom what went through your mind
I said "I felt the power of death over life
I beg their forgiveness I wish I was dead"
I hung my head, I hung my head
Early one morning with time to kill
And out in the distance a trick of the brain
He's come to fetch me to see what they done
I pray for God's mercy for soon I'll be dead
I hung my head, I hung my head
