(E)"bout the time my daddy left to fight the big war.
(E)I saw my first pistol in the,
(B)General store,the general store I was fourteen thought
(B)it was the finest thing
(E)I ever did see.
(E)Asked if I could have it someday when I grew up.
(E)Mama dropped the pistol and she
(B)nearly threw up, nearly threw up, I didn't understand
(B)Mama said the pistol is the
(E)devil's right hand.
(A)The devil's right hand,the
(E)devils right hand Mama said the pistol,
(E)is the(B)devil's right(E)hand.
My very first pistol was a cap and ball colt.
Shoot as fast as lightnin'but she'd load a might slow.
Load a might slow .I soon found out it'll
Get you into trouble,but it can't get you out.
So then I went and bought myself a colt 45.
It was called a peace maker,but i never knew why.
Never knew why, I didn't understand.
Mama says the pistol is the devil's right hand.
Well I got into a card game with a couple in town,
Caught a body cheatin' and I shot the dog down.
I shot the dog down,watched the man fall.
Never touched his holster,never had a chance to draw.
Early in the morning and they drug me outta bed,
Asked me how i pleaded,not guilty isaid
Not guilty I said,you got the wrong man.
Nothin touched the trigger but the devils own hand.
