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 peace maker,but i never knew why.
Never knew why, I didn't understand.
Mama says the pistol is the devil's right hand.
Well I got into a card game with a couple in town,
Caught a body cheatin' and I shot the dog down.
I shot the dog down,watched the man fall.
Never touched his holster,never had a chance to draw.
Early in the morning and they drug me outta bed,
Asked me how i pleaded,not guilty isaid
Not guilty I said,you got the wrong man.
Nothin touched the trigger but the devils own hand.
