Webb Wilder – Devil's Right Hand lyrics

(Webb... Spoken)
"We have never deliberatly enjoyed any association with
Satanism, the occult, Jimmy Page's photo collection,
Mephestopholies, Belzebub. The reason we'd like to make
This disclaimer, is because the next musical composition
Is called the Devil's Right Hand. "

Bout the time that daddy went to fight the great war
I saw my first pistol in the general store
The general store when I was thirteen
I thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
Asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
Momma dropped a dozen eggs she really blew up
She really blew up she didn't understand
Momma said a pistol is the devil's right hand

The Devil's right hand
The Devil's right hand
Momma says a pistol is the devil's right hand

My first pistol was a cap and ball Colt
It shoots as fast as lighnin'... Loads a might slow
Loads a might slow... I shoulda found out
It'll get you into trouble but it can't get you out
Bout a year later got a Colt. 45
They called it Peacemaker I never knew why
I never knew why... I didn't understand
Momma says a pistol is the devil's right hand

The Devil's right hand
The Devil's right hand
Momma says a pistol is the devil's right hand

Well I got into a card game in a company town
I caught a man cheatin'... I shot the dog down
Shot the dog down... Watched the man fall
Never touched his holster never had the chance to draw
The trial was in the mornning and they drug me outta bed
They asked me how I pleaded Not guilty I said
Not guilty I said... You got the wrong man
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

The Devil's right hand
The Devil's right hand
Momma says a pistol is the devil's right hand

The Devil's right hand
The Devil's right hand
Momma says a pistol is the devil's right hand
