The devils right hand crd  Steve Earle

        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


Break : F#

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
