The Hanging Tree: The Story Behind The Song.

We all know the Hanging Tree song Katniss sings in Mockingjay Chapter 9, when she revisits 12 with Gale, Cressida, Castor and Pollux for some interviews. During lunch, Pollux asks her to sing a song to the mockingjays. But where does this song come from? I invented this story, the story behind the song. I hope you like it! Love, Tinne

1. The song.

 

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

Where they strung up a man the 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 stanger 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.
