The Gun The Gold And The Girl
Recorded by Billy Walker
Written by Harlan Howard and Buddy Mize

G D7 G
I had to have the gun to get the gold
D7 G
And I had to have the gold to get the girl

C G D7 G
She wanted things I couldn't buy I knew I'd lose her love
C D7 G
And she was everything in life that I've been dreaming of
C G D7 G
In desperation one dark night began my life of crime
C D7 G
I knew where someone kept a gun and now the gun was mine

Repeat #1

C G D7 G
I robbed and stole I even killed to win her for my own
C D7 G
Then found her in another's arms one night when I came home
C G D7 G
I drew my gun they tried to run but never made the door
C D7 G
And by their side I threw the gun I wouldn't need no more

D7 G
No I wouldn't need the gun to get the gold
D7 G
For I wouldn't need the gold to get the girl

C G D7 G
Now very soon I'll meet my doom the rope hangs just outside
C D7 G
But when I found her in his arms that's when I really died

Repeat #1 x2
