The Devil's Right Hand  The Highwaymen



Abou[E]t the time that daddy left to fight the big war
I saw my first pistol in the general s[B]tore
In the general store,when i was thirteen
Thought it was the finest thing i ever had s[E]een
Verse 2:(Willie Nelson)
So [E]i asked if i could have one some day when i grew up
Mama dropped a dozen eggs,she really blew[B] up
She really blew up and i didn't understand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right h[E]and
Chorus:(All together)
The devi[A]l's right hand,the d[E]evil's right hand
Mama [B]said the pistol is the de[E]vil's right hand
Verse 3:(Kris Kristofferson)
My v[E]ery first pistol was a cap and ball colt
Shoots as fast as lightin' but it loads a mighty [B]slow
Loads a mighty slow and soon i found out
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you[E] out
Verse 4:(Waylon Jennings)
So t[E]hen i went and bought myself a colt 45
Called a peacemaker but i never knew [B]why
Never knew why,i didn't understand
'Cause Mama said the pistol is the devil's right h[E]and

Verse 5:(a tone higher)
Wel[F#]l i got into a card game in a company town
Caught a miner cheating i shot the dog d[C#]own
Shot the dog down,watched the man fall
Never touched his holster never had a chance to d[F#]raw
The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
Asked me how i pleaded,not guilty i s[C#]aid
Not guilty i said,you've got the wrong man
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right h[F#]and
Chorus bis:(a tone higher)
The de[B]vil's right hand,the d[F#]evils's right hand
Mama s[C#]aid the pistol is the de[F#]vil's right hand
Chorus bis.
Mama s[C#]aid the pistol is the dev[F#]il's right hand
