The Devils Right Hand chords by The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen Chords

performed by Waylon Jennings
	     Kris Kristofferson
             Willie Nelson
             Johnny Cash

Verse 1:(Johnny Cash)
	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

Verse 2:(Willie Nelson)
	So i asked if i could have one some day when i grew up
	Mama dropped a dozen eggs,she really blew up

	She really blew up and i didn't understand
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

Chorus:(All together)
                A                   E
	The devil's right hand,the devil's right hand
             B                        E
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

Verse 3:(Kris Kristofferson)
	My very first pistol was a cap and ball colt
	Shoots as fast as lightin' but it loads a mighty slow

	Loads a mighty slow and soon i found out
	It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out

Verse 4:(Waylon Jennings)
	So then 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

Verse 5:(a tone higher)
	Well i got into a card game 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 chance to draw

	The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
	Asked me how i pleaded,not guilty i said

	Not guilty i said,you've got the wrong man
	Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

Chorus bis:(a tone higher)
              B                     F#   
	The devil's right hand,the devils's right hand
              C#                      F#
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

Chorus bis.

              C#                       F#
	Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
