Uriah Heep - The Hanging Tree Lyrics




Crush into the arms of Satan
Reaching for the hands of God
I'm robbing ev'ry mind of wisdom
Running so he won't get caught
He's out the law by majority
In branded all his live
And some say that he's a sinner man
As he rides from day to night

He's a bad man so they say
Livin' for his life and livin' free
Running swift and secretly
So we'll miss the hanging tree
Wounded spirits on the wind
Ridin' to his dream and destiny

He's locking up the wall of posters
Calling for his friends to see
Laughin' loud as he rides away
Kicking up the dust with speed
Time hunts him down the pathway
And freedom is the horse he rides
Glory is the dream he's after
And fortune is his hearts delight

  4. Jehad Akbari

    Passing through the arms of Satan
    Reaching for the hands of God
    Robbing every mind for wisdom
    Running so he won't get caught
    He's outlawed by majority
    Been branded all his life
    Some say that he's a sinner man
    As he rides from day to night

    He's a bad man, so they say
    Living for his love and living free
    Riding swift and secretly
    So he'll miss the hanging tree
    Wounded spirit on the wind
    Riding to his dream and destiny

    He's laughing at the wanted posters
    Calling for his friends to see
    Laughing aloud as he rides away
    Kicking up the dust with speed
    Time hands him down a pathway
    And freedom is a horse he rides
    Glory is a dream he's after
    And fortune is his heart's delight

    Riding swift and secretly
    So he'll miss the hanging tree
    Wounded spirit on the wind
    Riding to his dream and destiny
