[Intro]
D Bm D Bm D

[Verse]
N.C.
Now Smackwater Jack, he bought a shotgun
Bm    D  A          D                               G    
Cause he was in the mood for a little confrontation
D       Em         G 
He just let it all hang loose
   A         
He didn't think about the noose
                    F#m  G
He couldn't take no more abuse
                    D
So he shot down the congregation

[Chorus]
          A         Bm
You can't talk to a man
A      D              G 
With a shotgun in his hand
D       G    D
Shotgun

[Verse]
Bm                D 
Now Big Jim the chief stood for law and order
                        Bm          D
He called for the guard to come and surround the border
Bm           D
Now from his bulldog mouth
   Em         G
As he led the posse south
         F#m         Em 
Came the cry, we got to ride
G                    Em      D             Dm         D 
Clean up the streets for our wives and our daughters

[Chorus]
A                   Bm
You can't talk to a man
A             D       G         Em
When he don't want to understand
G       D   A
No, no, no, no, no, no

[Instrumental]
G D G D Bm D G D G C D

[Verse]
                                                Bm  D
The account of the capture wasn't in the papers
                                                       G  D 
But you know, they hanged ole Smack right then instead of later
         Dm         D
You know the people were quite pleased
          G
Cause the outlaw had been seized
           A                         G 
And on the whole, it was a very good year
        D
For the undertaker

[Chorus]
                              A         Bm
You know, you know, you can't talk to a man
G      A   D          Em   A
With a shotgun in his hand
G              Dm
Shotgun in his hand

[Bridge]
D
Smackwater Jack, yeah
D
Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun
D
Yeah, Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun
D
Smackwater Jack, yeah
D
Smackwater Jack, yeah

[Outro]
Bm            D
Talkin' about Smackwater Jack, yeah
Bm            D
Talkin' about Smackwater Jack, oh
N.C.
Talkin' about Jack and his shotgun
Dm      D
Talkin' about Smack, talkin' about Jack
D
Smackwater Jack, yeah
