Capo 1

(Verse 1)
        Em                                 Em 
He rode into town one dust storm sheepskin cloak across his back
  D                                    Em
A preacherman with kind old eyes and a mystery for a past
             Em                              Em
He said he'd come to teach about the love of God
    D                                                Em
But he soon learned what they were missing there was justice and the law


(Verse 2)
            Em                                   Em
There was a cattleman who claimed his clan owned all the land around
D                                         Em
Any brave fool that might dispute, he was quick to snuff em out
           Em                                  Em
He'd say, "Take my heed, and you won't pay the price.
      D                                       Em
Cause honor and a name ain't worth a damn, if you don't have your life."


(Chorus)
      Em                            Em
Cause ain't nobody faster than this cattleman's gun
      D                  Em
I'm a rattlesnake on the trigger
Em                      Em
Your last stand will be lyin in the sand
D                        Em
Fallen to the slam of my hammer


(Verse 3)
   Em                                    Em
So one man taught forgiveness, while the other taught suffering
D                                  Em
Preacher said deliverance could be found down on their knees
           Em                                  Em
He'd say, "I know you want justice and you want blood
      D                                 Em
But believe me when I say to you, don't try and be that man's judge


(Chorus 2)
      Em                            Em
Cause ain't nobody faster than that cattleman's gun
       D                  Em
He's a rattlesnake on the trigger
Em                      Em
Your last stand will be lyin in the sand
D                         Em
Fallen to the slam of his hammer


(Instrumental)

(Verse 4)
Em                                 Em
One day a young farmer brought his sons to town for feed
   D                                          Em
He noticed that the streets were quiet and he knew what that might mean
Em                                     Em
Smoke rose from the distance, his farm burned to the ground
           D                      Em
He let the fury overtake him when cattleman came back to town


(Verse 5)
    Em                                     Em
His boys ran out from behind the crowd and watched their daddy die
D                                                    Em
Big man laughed and said, "Now look at that! Anybody else wanna give it a try?"
    Em                                                      Em
The church doors opened with that black cloak flowin behind preacher's fiery eyes
               D           
He said, "Your ticket to Hell's a comin to you 
            Em
And I got a hollow point to give you the ride."


(Chorus 3)
        Em                          Em
And the only thing faster than that cattleman's gun 
        D                      Em
Was the preacherman's hand and finger
          Em                         Em
He pulled iron fomr his side and let that bullet fly 
             D                  Em
And beat the rattlesnake to the hammer
         Em                   Em             D            Em
Why this preacher embraced forgiveness, they finally understood
Em                   Em                  D          Em
Under that sheepskin cloak of his, was a history of blood
