about

An old folk song Katniss's mother sang to her in "The Hunger Games". Lyrics are property of Ms. Suzanne Collins. I simply put them to music.

lyrics

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man they say murdered three

Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree

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 up at midnight in the hanging tree

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 up at midnight in the hanging tree

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of rope side by side with me

Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree
