CAPO THREE
CHORDS RELATIVE TO CAPO

   D
'Bout the time my daddy left to fight the big war
                                    A
I saw my first pistol in the general store
   A
In the general store, I was thirteen
  A                               D
I thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
 D
Asked if I could have it someday when I grew up
                            A
Mama dropped a dozen eggs and really blew up
    A
Yeah she really blew up, I didn't understand
                           D
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand


CHORUS:
    G
The devil's right hand
    D       G     D
The devil's right hand
A                           D
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand.

My very first pistol was a cap and ball Colt.
Shoot as fast as lightnin' but she'd load a might slow.
Load a might slow. I soon found out 
It'll get you into trouble, but it can't get you out.
So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45.
It was called a Peacemaker, but i never knew why.
Never knew why, I didn't understand.
Mama says the pistol is the devil's right hand.

CHORUS:

Well I got into a card game in a company town
Caught a miner cheatin' and I shot the dog down
I shot the dog down, I watched the man fall
Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw
The trial was in the morning and they drug me outta bed
They asked me how I pleaded, "not guilty," I said
Not guilty I said, you got the wrong man
Nothin' touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

CHORUS:
Tap to rate this tab
