The Man Behind The Gun Recorded by Hank Snow Written by Ned Miller [3/4 time]
G D7 G A man behind the gun
They gave me the job of a sheriff D7 Because I'm good with a gun
Now how could I ever refuse them G They really needed someone
I tried to explain to my baby D7 But still she left me one day
She said she'd return to me only G When I threw my six gun away
C And I'm not suppose to be lonely G To need or love anyone D7 I'm just suppose to be only G The man behind the gun
Then one day she sent me a letter D7 She said I want you to know
I miss you and my heart is breakin' G I love you and I need you so
The stage it was leavin' next mornin' D7 I'd be on that stage without fail
Then someone shot ol' Jimmy Taylor G And I took out on his trail
repeat #3 But I'm...
Well three weeks it took I remember D7 Before I tracked the man down
And when I returned with the prisoner G It was the talk of the town
To late to go to my baby D7 They buried her deep in the clay
I spend all these hours in the saddle G And I draw a heartache for pay
repeat #3 But he's not...
D7 G A man behind the gun
