A                    G                                       F 
Well, I was there to buy a pistol She was there to hawk her ring
     G             Cm                         Bm
The broker in the pawnshop Deals in almost anything.
F                                    Bm
Hell pay you for your misery Or hell sell you someone's pain

And that twinkle in his greedy eye Says your loss will be his gain.

Cm                                    Bm               
She stood back in the shadows As the broker dealt with me
     G                  Cm                  
Her eyes were dark and desperate From some private misery.
                    Cm                      Fm
His words were so prophetic When he said you got a steal
    A                      Gm                     Cm
I said throw in one bullet and you got yourself a deal.

                                    B 
Oh, a Saturday night special Is an easy thing to buy
        Cm                          B
All you got to be is twenty-one or fifteen if you lie.
     Fm                             Cm   
Just hand the man money And if some ones gotta die
A                          Gm                     C 
The broker in the pawnshop     won't even blink an eye.

                                         B
Well, he handed me the pistol and I was almost to the door
        Cm                     Bm                    Cm  
When I heard him tell the lady Seven dollars nothing more.
     G                             B
The lady started crying as he took her wedding band
       A                               G             C 
Well, my hand was in my pocket and the gun was in my hand.

 C              
Well I was gonna use that bullet to end my life
                G                                   F
I was once somebody's husband she was once somebody's wife.
          Cm                            Bm             
Well, I usually mind my business, but I could not walk away
      A                              G                      C    G   D
His dollars just weren't making sense    and I knew I had to stay.

                                             C
Well, the brokers face turned pasty when he caught my icy stare
           D                     C 
It would never leave my pocket, but he knew the gun was there.
                       D                     C
I asked him what his life was worth and he opened up that drawer
        Dm                        A                 D
For a simple golden wedding band    He paid $2000 more.

                           G           C
That Saturday night was special even though it wasn't planned
   D                                  C
As we walked down the sidewalk She reached and took my hand.
                 Gm                            D
We crossed the bridge and I took that gun and sailed it through the air
                                           A                      D
I said,   Ever been to Texas? She said,    I think Id love it there.

                                    C
Oh, a Saturday night special is an easy thing to buy
         D                           C             
All you got to be is twenty-one or fifteen if you lie
               Gm                                D
But there's a pawnshop in the city, that used to deal in everything
