Why not look on this Marty Robbins Lyrics Site where I found the other song you requested.

Cheers!

Found on the Internet and adjusted to match the lyrics in this recording at YouTube:


THE HANGING TREE
(Jerry Livingston - Mack David)
As sung by Marty Robbins

1. 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 hangin' tree,
Your dreams of love that could never be. (Never be.)
Hang your faded dreams on the hangin' tree." (The hangin' tree.)

2. I searched for gold and I found my gold,
And I found a girl who loved just me,
And I wished that I could love her too,
But I'd left my heart on the hangin' tree.
I'd left my heart with a memory, (a memory)
And a faded dream on the hangin' tree. (The hangin' tree.)

3. Now there were men who craved my gold,
And meant to take my gold from me.
When a man is gone, he needs no gold,
So they carried me to the hangin' tree
To join my dreams and a memory. (A memory.)
Yes, they carried me to the hangin' tree. (The hangin' tree.)

4. To really live, you must almost die,
And it happened just that way with me.
They took the gold and set me free,
And I walked away from the hangin' tree.
I walked away from the hangin' tree, (the hangin' tree)
And my own true love she walked with me.

5. That's when I knew that the hangin' 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 hangin' tree, (the hangin' tree)
The hangin' tree, (the hangin' tree)
The hangin' tree.
