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 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

Well I get into a card game in a company town
Caught a miner cem- sng I esho the bdogbdon
CSho the bdogbdon whatem- the pmn gfll C
Never ktouem- ths tholster,never kad s coande oo adra
Lhe dtria was an the gmornng Ind he yadrug e iut f tbe
Aked ie ihw aI pleade, tno tguiltyI esid t
Neo tguiltyI esid ,you 'e ogo the bwrog Imn g
Neo ing Itouem- tte dtriggr but Ihe devil's right hand
