When The Pin Hits The Shell
By Drive-by Truckers


        F                         C
You can lie to your Mama, you can lie to your race 
        F                             Bb
But you can’t lie to nobody with that cold steel in your face
        F                                       C
And the same God that you’re so afraid is gonna send you to hell 
       F                                        Bb
Is the same one you’re gonna answer to when the pin hits the shell
           F                          C
Well, Your sister’s been blaming everybody
        F                                  Bb
I don’t blame her, man, I guess I’d do the same 
              F                                C 
if you was my brother, man, I‘d probably stand by you. 
        F                             Bb
But you ain’t, man, so I got to go my way. 


Chorus 1:
                  Dm 
And I ain’t gonna crawl upon no high horse 
        Bb 
Cause I got thrown off of one 
           F
When I was young and I ain’t no cowboy 
           Bb
So I ain’t going where I don’t belong
   Dm      
It wouldn’t do you no good to let you know that 
   Bb
It damned near killed me too 
                 F                                   Bb
So I ain’t gonna mourn for you, man, now that you’re gone


Me and you, we liked our pills and our whiskey
But you don’t want your head full of either one when the house gets quiet and dark
Having fun used to be so damned easy
Racing trains from 2nd Street to Avalon

Chorus 2:
Take a trip down memory lane
You don’t see no friendly faces 
All the houses have been painted and 
Nobody knows your name. 
It’s enough to make a man not want 
To be nobody’s Daddy
When all he thinks he’s got left to hand down is guilt and shame

Chorus 1

You can lie to your Mama, you can lie to your race 
But you can’t lie to nobody with that cold steel in your face
And the same God that you’re so afraid is gonna send you to hell 
Is the same one you’re gonna answer to when the pin hits the shell

This sounds especially nice with a capo on 3 and played with G, D, C, and Em. Nice work!
