They're Hanging Me Tonight  Marty Robbins

A pretty cool song that wasn't here when I looked for it and the chords I found online
weren't very accurate (Not saying these will be 100% either, but I like them better than
what I found.)
F: xx3211
Dm: xx0231
A#: x13331
Note: This can also be played with a capo on the 5th fret and by playing the open chords
of C, Am and F from there (Actually F, Dm and A#, but they look like the open chords
from the capo).

Intro: F Dm A# F
[F]When I hear the rain a [Dm]comin' down
[F]it makes me sad and blu[Dm]e
[F]Was on a rainy night like [Dm]this
[A#]that Flo said we were thro[F]ugh.
[F]I told her how I lov[Dm]ed her,
[F]and I begged her not [Dm]to go
[F]But another man had changed [Dm]her mind
[A#]so I said goodbye to [F]Flo.
[F]Alone within my cell t[Dm]onight
[F]my heart is filled with[Dm] fear
[F]The only sound within th[Dm]e room
[A#]is the falling of each t[F]ear.
[F]I think about the thing I'v[Dm]e done,
[F]I know it wasn't righ[Dm]t
[F]They'll bury Flo tomor[Dm]row, [A#]but they're hanging me tonig[F]ht,
[A#]They're hanging me toni[F]ght!
That night he came and took my Flo and headed in to town
I knew I had to find this man and try to gun him down
As I walked by a dim cafe and I looked through the door
I saw my Flo with her new love and I couldn't stand no more,
I couldn't stand no more.
I took my pistol from my hip and with a trembling hand
I took the life of pretty Flo and that good for nothin' man
That good for nothin' man!
I think about the thing I've done I know it wasn't right
They'll bury Flo tomorrow, but they're hanging me tonight,
They're hanging me tonight.
