Capo 1

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


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


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


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


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


(Instrumental)

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


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


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