"The Hanging Tree," lyrics by Suzanne Collins
taken from Mockingjay (the third book in the Hunger Games Trilogy)
I intend to upload another instrumental version of this song (with fiddle and drums) but I thought I'd put up the a capella version for now. I've enjoyed these books so much, but Mockingjay especially made me realize that , if all I do is find them entertaining, I'm no better than the Capitol. This song felt like a very... healing... moment in the book. And while the melody is simple and the rhythm steady, I hope it conveys both the beauty and the heaviness of the scene and the book in general.
