The Hunger Games – The Hanging Tree chords – Misc Soundtrack

 From The Hunger Games movie Mockingjay: Part 1, I think this is more or less accurate. Sounds good either 
fingerpicking or just plucking each chord once.

No capo

Coming to the tree
            Am G F Am 
Where they strung up a man they say murdered three
 C Am 
Strange things did happen here
    F Am 
No stranger would it be
       Am G F Am 
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree

     Am G

Verse
 C Am Em 
You fall through the trees and you pray with your knees on the ground
 C Am Em 
For the things that you need and your lust and your greed weighing down
 C Am Em  
And you weaken your love and hold it above your head
 C Am Em 
Success is a song of the heart, not a song in your head

The Tree – Big Swamp Gospel chords

 Its basically just verse -  G B C G ,  C G D  and chorusish part -  C G D G ,  C G D 

[Paul]
   G B C G 
The Spanish moss drapes the tree line so thick I can barely see 
    C G D 
the path in front of me, walking this morning. 
       G B C G 
Underneath the sun, without a cloud to block out Heaven,
         C G D  
or maybe up there is the devil. I'm not certain.

      C G D G 
 The Lord's Glory is Terrible, but Just, and I am ready 
       C G D 
to go forth into battle as His weapon. 

        G B C G 
But I ain't seen a single soul since I came into Moss Bluff.
        C G D           
It makes me wonder what I've done to lose God's grace.
      G B C G 
Down the road a great tree reaches up to rival Heaven.
              C G D 
Or maybe up there is the devil, at least in this place.

      C G D G 
The price for God's Protection is Heavy, but I will yield 
                C G D 
so I can go forth into battle with His shield. 

          G B C G 
A crowd gathers around down there beneath the mighty branches,
                C G D 
the red leaves and blackened apples of the tree.
          G B C G 
They sing and dance a twisted joy that's not a thing of heaven.
           C G D 
It must be of the Devil, plain to see.

           C G D G 
The flames of the Lord's Justice burn with Cruelty, but Precision 
        C G D 
against all who deny they are His children.
 
            G B C G 
So turn now to the Righteous path, for God will not be waiting 
        C G D 
to grab your soul from Satan at the End Times.
           G B C G 
The crowd scatters away, leaving just one man in the picture.
                      C G D 
He breathes of darkness, sips of liquor red as wine.

      C G D G 
And I reach for the lord's sword, but there's nothing for me to grab 
           C G D 
as the sky turns red and the sun goes black. 

[Tommy] 
      G B C G        
Well preacher man, this must be the first day you've been in town.
               C G D 
If you need a guide to what's around, Hell, I'll oblige. 
     G B C G 
You see I wipe my ass with scripture, I spit on the gates of heaven. 
 C G D 
Fool, you're talkin' to the Devil, are you blind? 

 C G D G 
Satan's Price is Terrible and collected without reason. 
     C G D 
But drink here of this gin and you could meet him.

Autumn Tree chords – Milo Greene V3

 A great song that I have performed with my band many times and I use these chords.

Capo 4

Strumming pattern for most of the song is DUUDUU

Chords Used (frets relative to capo)
   C Em D Am G 
E-x--0--x--x--3-|

G-2--2--4--2--0-|
D-0--0--0--2--0-|

(the D is a C chord moved up 2 frets)

Optional Intro (Not in Milo Greenes version but I add one)
 C Em D C D  (strum once then pause)
If you want to add a bit of interest to the chord progression I do the following:
For the first C flick on and off the B string every down strum after the first, Em same
with the flick off/on on the A string then with both the D and the second C use your
pinky on the high E string on the 5th fret for the D and the 3rd fret for the C with a 
flick on and off.

                 C 
Under the autumn tree
                          Em

                 D C 
A yard so full of leaves

Comfort me

                      C 
A man that resembles me
                             Em 
Watching his young lady sleep
               D C 
Now I'm off to dream

Comfort me

 D 
Linger on

If all you wanted was love
               C F

You feel hollow, so you crawl home back to me

I find that a capo on the first or second fret helps me sing the low parts a little more easily...

Verse 1
 E A E 
What's that there, can you see
   E B 
I wonder what that thing could be
 E A B 
Now it's sitting in the tree
 E A B E 
Part of the gum tree family

    A 
It flies up high
 E 
Lands on a branch
 A 
Makes this sound....koo koo ka ka ka...
 B 
You guessed it, it's a kookaburra!
     E A B 
And when it's sitting in the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family

 E A B E 

(Play E chord during break)

Verse 2
 E A E 
What's that there, can you see
   E B 
I wonder what that thing could be
 E A B 
Sleeping up there in the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family

    A 
It sits on a branch
 E 
Chews the leaves
   A 
A baby on her back
 B 
You guessed it, it's a koala!
     E A B 
And when it's sitting in the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family

 E A B E 

Verse 3
 E A E 
What's that there, can you see
   E B 
I wonder what that thing could be
 E A B 
In the creek beside the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family

      A 
It's got webbed feet
   E 
A bill like a bird
    A 
It lives in the creek
 B 
You guessed it, it's a platypus!
     E A B 
And when it's underneath the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family

 E A B E 

Verse 4
 E A E 
What's that there, can you see
   E B 
I wonder what that thing could be
 E A B 
Bouncing along beside the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family

      A 
It's got brown fur
 E 
Hops along
    A 
A joey in her pouch

You guessed it, it's a kangaroo!
     E A B 
And when it's underneath the tree
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family
      E A B E 
It's part of the gum tree family
