About the time that Daddy left to fight the big war
I saw my first pistol in the general store
In the general store, when I was thirteen
thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
so I asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
Mama dropped a dozen eggs, she really blew up
she really blew up and I didn´t understand,
Mama sad the pistol is the devil´s right hand.
Chorus :
The devil´s right hand,
the devil´ s right hand
Mama said the pistol is the devil´s right hand.

My very first pistol was a cap and ball colt
shoot as fast as lightin´ but it loads a mite slow
loads a mite slow and soon I found out
it can get you into trouble but it can´t get you out
so than I went and bought myself a colt 45
called a peacemaker but I never knew why
never knew why, I didn´t understand
cause Mama said the pistol is the devil´s right hand.

Repeat Chorus ...

Well I got into a cardgame in a company town
caught a miner cheating I shot the dog down
shot the dog down, watched the man fall
never touched his holster, never had a chans to draw
the trail was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I sad
not guilty I sad, you´ve got the wrong man
nothing touched the trigger but the devil´s right hand

Repeat Chorus x 2...
