[Verse]
BCowboys we are
E B ECowboys we shall always be
BDon’t let it end like this, boys
E B ETell ‘em I sense something?
[Verse]
B EThey say trouble rides a fast horse
B EThey say forgiveness rides a mule
BOh yeah, they say a lot of things
E B EThat’s why I lived by my own rules
[Verse]
BYou know a man is seen in fragments
E B EA scar, a limp, tattoos and broken teeth
BScratch the surface on most men out here
E B EAnd you’ll find two men hiding underneath
[Verse]
BBut I come not here to lecture you
E B EOf good and evil, black or white, right or wrong
BI’ve come to sing my story
E B EI'm the Black Jack, baby, of all those old gipsy songs
[Verse]
BA loose canon, they have called me
E B EA half-cocked cowboy, falling apart
BWith my war-bag full of cheap tricks
E B F#Dead certain, mister, of my hair trigger heart
[Chorus]
B F# E BOh baby, I got a hair trigger heart
F# EI got a hair trigger heart
[Verse]
BI've known love from every angle
E B EI never learned the art of the graceful getaway
BYeah, the poetry eludes me, sir
E B EI don’t give a damn what all the minor poets say
[Verse]
B"I’m not an alcoholic, I’m a drunk, there’s a difference
E B ESet 'em up, kid, and make it smart"

EWith my hair trigger heart, yeah
[Instrumental] B E B E B E B E [Verse]
B EAt the far end of eternity, you will find me
B EAt a pub they call The Sword 'n' Highwayman
BI'll have a wax museum moustache
E B EMight be missing several fingers on my trigger hand
[Verse]
BI’ll have forgotten half the alphabet
E B EMy name, my age, my Chinese laundry mark
BBetween instinct and oblivion, mister
E B F#I will always hang on to this hair trigger heart
[Chorus]
