The Devil’s Right Hand
Recorded by The Highwaymen
Written by Steve Earle

C
About the time my daddy left to fight the big war
G7
I saw my first pistol in the general store

In the general store when I was thirteen
C
Thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen


So I asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
G7
Momma dropped a dozen eggs she really blew up

She really blew up and I didn't understand
C
Momma said the pistol is the devil's right hand

F C
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
G7 C
Momma said the pistol is the devil's right hand


My very first pistol was a cap and ball colt
G7
Shoots as fast as lightin' but it loads a might slow

Loads a might slow and soon I found out
C
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out


So then I went and bought myself a colt 45
G7
Called a peacemaker but I never knew why

Never knew why I didn't understand
C
Cause momma said the pistol is the devil's right hand

F C
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
G7 C
Momma said the pistol is the devil's right hand
F C
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
G7 C
Momma said the pistol is the devil's right hand


Well I got into a card game in a company town
G7
Caught a miner cheating I shot the dog down

Shot the dog down watched the man fall
C
Never touched his holster never had a chance to draw


The trial was in the morning and they drug me outta bed
G7
Asked me how I pleaded not guilty I said

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

F C
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
G7 C
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand
F C
The devil's right hand the devil's right hand
G7 C
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

G7 C
Momma says the pistol is the devil's right hand
