​Hangin' Tree

This song is by Green River and appears on the album Sub Pop 200 (1988).

Original video
I come running to the shelter of the hangin' tree
Down by where the creek runs dry
How many boys have hung above me
Leaving how many girls alone to cry

Alone, alone
Alone to cry

This cruel wind brings in one last storm
I need the shelter of the hangin' tree
Branches block drops of mornin' water
Claims of love are made

Flash flood, eternal love
Flash flood, eternal flood
Runnin', runnin'
Runnin' past that hangin' tree

I come runnin' to the shelter of the hangin' tree
Down by where the creek runs wild
Drenched by bad bad love
Gonna hang myself out to dry

Hang myself, hang myself
Gonna hang myself out to dry
Out to dry, hang 'em high
Part the red sea
Part the red sea
Part the red sea
Part the red sea
Part it, part it and let me through
Let me through, let me through

Let me through, let me through
Let me through, let me through
Let me through, let me through
Let me through, let me through
