Devil's Right Hand  Johnny Cash

UNEARTHED II: TROUBLE IN MIND
Well a[E]bout the time my Daddy left to [A]fight the big [E]war
Saw my first pistol in the [B]genereal [E]store
In the general [E]store when [A]I was thir[E]teen
Thought it was the finest thing I [B]ever did [E]seen
Asked if I could have one when I grew up
Mama dropped a dozen eggs and she really blew up
She really blew up and I didn't understand
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand
CHORUS:
She [A]really blew up and I [E]didn't understand
[B]Mama said the pistol is the [E]Devil's right hand
The [A]Devil's right hand, the [E]Devil's right hand
[B]Mama said the pistol is the [E]Devil's right hand
My very first pistol was a cap 'n' ball Colt
Shoots as fast as lightnin' but it loads a mighty slow
Loads a mighty slow and I soon found out
It can get ya into trouble but it can't get you out
Then I went and bought my self a Colt 45
Called a peacemaker but I never knew why
I never knew why and I couldn't understand
'Cause Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand
CHORUS:
I never knew why and I couldn't understand
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand
The Devil's right hand, the Devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand
I got into a card game in a company town
Caught a minor cheatin' and I shot the dog down
Shot the dog down watched the dog fall
Never touched his holster never had a chance to draw
Trial was in the mornin' and they drug me outta bed
Asked me how I pleaded not guilty I said
Not guilty I said you got the wrong man
'Cause nothin' touched the trigger but the Devil's right hand
CHORUS:
Not guilty I said, you got the wrong man
Nothin' touched the trigger but the Devil's right hand
The Devil's right hand, the Devil's right hand
Nothin' touched the trigger but the Devil's right hand
