Lyrics of The Devil's Right Hand

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 l 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 said the pistol is the devil's right hand
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 lightnin' but it loads a might slow
Loads a might slow and soon I found out
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out
So then I went and bought myself a Colt forty five
Called a peacemaker but I never knew why
Never knew why
I didn't understand
'Cos mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
Well I get 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
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand
Mmh my mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
