Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: Unearthed (Disc 2 of 5/Track 12 of 16)



     E                               A             E 
Well about the time my daddy left to fight the big war
                           B       E
Saw my first pistol in the general store
                          A     E
In the general store when I was thirteen
                                  B        E
Thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
                            A           E
I asked if I could have one when I grew up
                                  B           E
Mama dropped a dozen eggs and she really blew up
                         A           E
She really blew up and I didn't understand
                            B             E
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand

CHORUS:

A                        E
She really blew up and I didn't understand
B                           E
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand
    A                       E
The Devil's right hand, the Devil's right hand
B                           E
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand


   E                       A            E
My very first pistol was a cap 'n' ball Colt
                                   B             E
Shoots as fast as lightning but it loads a might slow
                            A          E
It loads a might slow and I soon found out
                                   B             E
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out
                                A      E
Then I went and bought myself a Colt .45
                            B           E
Called a "Peacemaker" but I didn't know why
                       A           E
I never knew why and I didn't understand
                                   B             E
'Cause Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand

CHORUS:

A                      E
I never knew why and I didn't understand
B                           E
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand
    A                       E
The Devil's right hand, the Devil's right hand
B                           E
Mama said the pistol is the Devil's right hand


      E                     A       E
I got into a card game in a company town
                              B            E
Caught a minor cheatin' and I shot the dog down
                   A                E
Shot the dog down, watched the dog fall
                                 B               E
Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw
                                      A              E
The Trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
                            B        E
Asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I said
                          A             E
Not guilty I said, you've got the wrong man
                                    B             E
Nothin' touched the trigger but the Devil's right hand


CHORUS:

A                  E
Not guilty I said, you've got the wrong man
B                                   E
Nothin' touched the trigger but the Devil's right hand
    A                      E
The Devil'sright hand, the Devil's right hand
B                                   E
Nothin' touched the trigger but the Devil's right hand
