            D                       A                  G

When they caught the man he did 23 months of time
     D                                 A                  G
He plead insanity like they do now all the time
     D                                         A   G
Sir what would you have done in 1859
              D                           A                             G

Now they sue the manufactures of the guns

           D                         A                        G
Now my lawyer called me about a nuisance case

There are a couple of fixes. In the 2nd and 4th lines of the chorus it should be a "Bm" chord instead of "D" see how you like that.

And also the even lines of the versus change the "G" to an Em. The guitarist mixes it up so you really have to bend your ear for it.
