Capo 1

(Verse 1)
Dm Am He rode into town one dust storm sheepskin cloak across his back
G DmA preacherman with kind old eyes and a mystery for a past
Dm AmHe said he'd come to teach about the love of God
G DmBut he soon learned what they were missing there was justice and the law
(Verse 2)
Dm AmThere was a cattleman who claimed his clan owned all the land around
G DmAny brave fool that might dispute, he was quick to snuff em out
Dm AmHe'd say, "Take my heed, and you won't pay the price.
G DmCause honor and a name ain't worth a damn, if you don't have your life."
(Chorus)
Dm AmCause ain't nobody faster than this cattleman's gun
G DmI'm a rattlesnake on the trigger
Dm AmYour last stand will be lyin in the sand
G DmFallen to the slam of my hammer
(Verse 3)
Dm AmSo one man taught forgiveness, while the other taught suffering
G DmPreacher said deliverance could be found down on their knees
Dm AmHe'd say, "I know you want justice and you want blood
G DmBut believe me when I say to you, don't try and be that man's judge
(Chorus 2)
Dm AmCause ain't nobody faster than that cattleman's gun
G DmHe's a rattlesnake on the trigger
Dm AmYour last stand will be lyin in the sand
G DmFallen to the slam of his hammer
(Instrumental) Dm Am G Dm Am G Dm (Verse 4)
Dm AmOne day a young farmer brought his sons to town for feed
G DmHe noticed that the streets were quiet and he knew what that might mean
Dm AmSmoke rose from the distance, his farm burned to the ground
G DmHe let the fury overtake him when cattleman came back to town
(Verse 5)
Dm AmHis boys ran out from behind the crowd and watched their daddy die
G DmBig man laughed and said, "Now look at that! Anybody else wanna give it a try?"
Dm AmThe 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
DmAnd I got a hollow point to give you the ride."
(Chorus 3)
Dm AmAnd the only thing faster than that cattleman's gun
G DmWas the preacherman's hand and finger
Dm AmHe pulled iron fomr his side and let that bullet fly
G DmAnd beat the rattlesnake to the hammer
Dm Am G DmWhy this preacher embraced forgiveness, they finally understood
Dm Am G DmUnder that sheepskin cloak of his, was a history of blood
