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
Because I'm good with a gun

Now how could I ever refuse them
They really needed someone

I tried to explain to my baby
But still she left me one day

She said she'd return to me only
When I threw my six gun away

And I'm not suppose to be lonely
To need or love anyone
I'm just suppose to be only
The man behind the gun

Then one day she sent me a letter
She said I want you to know

I miss you and my heart is breakin'
I love you and I need you so

The stage it was leavin' next mornin'
I'd be on that stage without fail

Then someone shot ol' Jimmy Taylor
And I took out on his trail

repeat #3 But I'm...

Well three weeks it took I remember
Before I tracked the man down

And when I returned with the prisoner
It was the talk of the town

To late to go to my baby
They buried her deep in the clay

I spend all these hours in the saddle
And I draw a heartache for pay

repeat #3 But he's not...

D7 G
A man behind the gun
