About the time that Daddy left to fight the big war
In the general store, when I was thirteen

Mama dropped a dozen eggs, she really blew up
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is 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
Loads a mite slow and i soon found out
So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45
Never knew why, I didn't understand
Never knew why, I didn't understand
The devil's right hand, the devil's right hand

Caught a miner cheating I shot the dog down
Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw
Asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I said
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand
