The Hanging Tree/The Devil's Backbone Cover
 
I realized that Jennifer Lawrence's The Hanging Tree and The Civil Wars's (John Paul White & Joy Williams) The Devil's Backbone we're telling two sides of the same story. So, I mashed them together.

I’ve fallen in love with a man on the run Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I’m begging you please Don’t take that sinner from me Oh not on 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. Oh Lord, Oh Lord, what do I do? I’ve fallen for someone who’s nothing like you He’s raised on the edge of the devil’s backbone Oh I just wanna take him home Oh I just wanna take him home Are you, are you coming to the tree Where the 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. Oh Lord, Oh Lord, he’s somewhere between A hangman’s knot, and three mouths to feed There wasn’t a wrong or a right he could choose He did what he had to do Oh he did what he had to do Are you are you? Oh Lord, Oh Lord. 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.
