             Johnny Cash


Verse 1:(Johnny Cash)
            E
	About the time that daddy left to fight the big war
                                              B
	I saw my first pistol in the general store

	In the general store,when i was thirteen
                                                    E
	Thought it was the finest thing i ever had seen


Verse 2:(Willie Nelson)
           E
	So i asked if i could have one some day when i grew up
                                                 B
	Mama dropped a dozen eggs,she really blew up

	She really blew up and i didn't understand
                                                   E
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand


Chorus:(All together)
                A                   E
	The devil's right hand,the devil's right hand
             B                        E
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand


Verse 3:(Kris Kristofferson)
            E
	My very first pistol was a cap and ball colt
                                                         B
	Shoots as fast as lightin' but it loads a mighty slow

	Loads a mighty slow and soon i found out
                                                        E
	It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out


Verse 4:(Waylon Jennings)
            E
	So then i went and bought myself a colt 45
                                             B
	Called a peacemaker but i never knew why

	Never knew why,i didn't understand
                                                          E
	'Cause Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

	Well i got into a card game in a company town
                                                C#
	Caught a miner cheating i shot the dog down

	Shot the dog down,watched the man fall
                                                         F#
	Never touched his holster never had a chance to draw

	The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
                                             C#
	Asked me how i pleaded,not guilty i said

	Not guilty i said,you've got the wrong man
                                                           F#
	Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand


Chorus bis:(a tone higher)
              B                     F#
	The devil's right hand,the devils's right hand
              C#                      F#
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand


Chorus bis.

              C#                       F#
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
