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 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 handChorus:
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
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

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

Chorus (2x)

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:
The devil's right hand,the devils's right hand
Mama said 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
