There are two versions of the song made popular during the recently released new Hunger Games (Mockingjay Part 01) film currently doing the rounds.

The Radio Edit – (which Hypable feels is off point [thanks to @not_johnstamos for the link]) – by James Newton Howard featuring the almost unfeasibly talented Jennifer Lawrence.  She acts. She dances. And now, she sings!!

Coming to the tree
Where the dead man called out
