     The Cottonwood Tree
    >> Marty Robbins
     
        I rode into Tucson three hours ago
    For supplies and a short, friendly game
    A poker-wild smitty put some new shoes
    On old Dan before he goes lame
    I sat in a game at The Miner's Saloon
    Soon I had doubled my stake
    The cards run like they'd been dealt by lady luck
    They were just sealin' my fate
    A young cowboy lost more than he could afford
    And accused me of dealin' too smart
    His draw was too slow and he fell to the floor
    With three bullets close to the heart
    Oh, cottonwood tree are you waiting for me
    Waiting to take me away
    I've done no wrong, but the town cannot see
    And, so, with my life I must pay
    A crowd started gathrin', the Sheriff came in
    I handed him over my gun
    Was then that I found out the boy I had killed
    Was the town's biggest man's only son
    I tried to explain I had shot in defense
    It was the young cowboy or me
    The crowd wouldn't listen, so they drug me out
    To the limb of this cottonwood tree
    Majestic'ly standing out here all alone
    It's Spring and the valley is green
    But I can't admire a place I don't belong
    To me it's all like a bad dream
    But old Dan's beneath me with new shoes and all
    As they place the noose 'round my neck
    Cowboys I never laid eyes on before
    A-tyin' my hands to my back
    Oh, cottonwood tree are you waiting for me
    Waiting to take me away
    I've done no wrong, but the town cannot see
    And, so, with my life I must pay
    I see hate in the eyes of the town's biggest man
    As he pulls a branch from the tree
    To whip the backside of my old pony, Dan
    So he'll run out from under me
    Insane, he won't listen to my last appeal
    A wild grin has covered his face
    As I tried to reason just how he would feel
    If he were up here in my place
    There's many a mountain trail I'll never ride
    Green valley's I'll never see
    A young cowboy died, and a man's foolish pride
    Brought me to this cottonwood tree
    My face is turned upward and I cannot breath
    The sky's growing dark overhead
    The knot's pulling tight as my body swings free
    A few moments more, I'll be dead
    Oh, cottonwood tree were you put here for me
    Put here to take me away
    I've done no wrong, but the town cannot see
    And, so, with my life I must pay
