The Hanging Tree
James Newton Howard Lyrics


Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run
So we'd both be free
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope
Side by side with me
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run
So we'd both be free
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man
They say who murdered three
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree

erika loves books

I love this song. I've only read the books and have not seen the movies but after reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes I looked it up to see what tune the moviemakers came up with. I think this is perfect!

This song: (*Spoilers for the series*)
1. Was written by Lucy Gray Baird after she witnessed the hanging of Arlo Chance in District 12. He was convicted for the murders of three men and before he was executed, he called out to his lover, Lil, telling her to run. Later, Lil was caught and hung alongside Sejanus Plinth, whom Coriolanus Snow betrayed.
2. Is also about Billy Taupe telling Lucy Gray that if he is going to hang, she must hang with him. However, before he could kill her, he was shot dead by Spruce.
3. Was used by Lucy Gray to send a message to Coriolanus about the place where they were to meet the next morning to escape to the North together.
4. Was banned right after Lucy Gray sang it for the first time because of its controversial lyrics.
5. Was (presumably secretly) passed down through generations until it reached Katniss Everdeen, who heard it from her father.
6. Is used by Katniss in a propaganda video to inspire rebels during the second rebellion.

I have a line to add, at the very end.

(whisphered song)
I have, I have,
come to the tree.
Now I know what you meant, "for me, to flee."
Brother, sister, father... and you, and me...
left my mother crying,
by the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run
So we'd both be free
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope
Side by side with me
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run
So we'd both be free
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man
They say who murdered three
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
