A G F Well, I was there to buy a pistol She was there to hawk her ring G Cm Bm The broker in the pawnshop Deals in almost anything. F Bm Hell pay you for your misery Or hell sell you someone's pain A Gm Cm B - G And that twinkle in his greedy eye Says your loss will be his gain. Cm Bm She stood back in the shadows As the broker dealt with me G Cm Her eyes were dark and desperate From some private misery. Cm Fm His words were so prophetic When he said you got a steal A Gm Cm I said throw in one bullet and you got yourself a deal. B Oh, a Saturday night special Is an easy thing to buy Cm B All you got to be is twenty-one or fifteen if you lie. Fm Cm Just hand the man money And if some ones gotta die A Gm C The broker in the pawnshop won't even blink an eye. B Well, he handed me the pistol and I was almost to the door Cm Bm Cm When I heard him tell the lady Seven dollars nothing more. G B The lady started crying as he took her wedding band A G C Well, my hand was in my pocket and the gun was in my hand. C Well I was gonna use that bullet to end my life G F I was once somebody's husband she was once somebody's wife. Cm Bm Well, I usually mind my business, but I could not walk away A G C G D His dollars just weren't making sense and I knew I had to stay. C Well, the brokers face turned pasty when he caught my icy stare D C It would never leave my pocket, but he knew the gun was there. D C I asked him what his life was worth and he opened up that drawer Dm A D For a simple golden wedding band He paid $2000 more. G C That Saturday night was special even though it wasn't planned D C As we walked down the sidewalk She reached and took my hand. Gm D We crossed the bridge and I took that gun and sailed it through the air A D I said, Ever been to Texas? She said, I think Id love it there. C Oh, a Saturday night special is an easy thing to buy D C All you got to be is twenty-one or fifteen if you lie Gm D But there's a pawnshop in the city, that used to deal in everything A D Ha, but you cant buy a pistol there, you cant hawk your wedding ring...
