STRONG ARM OF THE LAW
AARON WATSON
A TEXAS CAFE
Tabbed By: Stoney

CAPO II:

Bm                                   D
HIS MOTHER BEGGED HIM TO BE A CATTLE MAN
Bm                                      D
BUT HE CHOSE TO WEAR THE STAR HIS DADDY WORE
 A                     G                D
GOD BLESSED HIM WITH A SHARP EYE AND A QUICK HAND
 G               D                A             Bm
QUICKER THAN THE MAN WHO SHOT HIS DADDY TO THE FLOOR

STILL SHE PRAYED AND SHE PLEADED
BUT RANCH WORK LACKED THE VENGEANCE HE NEEDED
WELL HE WAS CURSED ON HIS DADDY'S DYING DAY
WHEN A SHOT TO THE BACK LAID HIM 6 FEET IN HIS GRAVE

CHORUS:

       G       D           Bm  
AND HE WEARS A STAR ON HIS VEST
         G               D              Bm           G
THE ONLY THING BETWEEN A BULLET AND THE HEART IN HIS CHEST
          D              Bm            G
HELL BE A RANGER TIL HE TAKES HIS LAST DRAW
             D             A                 Bm
CAUSE HE WAS BORN WITH THE STRONG ARM OF THE LAW

HE WORE A COLT 45 ON HIS HIP
ONE NOTCH SHORT ON THE IVORY GRIP
SEARCHIN FOR THE OUTLAW THAT BROKE HIS MOMMA'S HEART
RIDIN THROUGH THE BADLANDS FROM DAYLIGHT TO DARK

IN A DIRTY BACKWATER BORDER TOWN
WHERE THE OUTLAW THOUGHT HE COULD NOT BE FOUND
HE LOOKED LIKE HE'D SEEN A GHOST WHEN HE SAW THE RANGERS FACE
A LEGACY TO THE LAWMAN HE SENT TO HIS RESTING PLACE

REPEAT CHORUS

THE OUTLAW HAD NO PLACE TO RUN
SO HE TURNED TO THE TRIGGER ON HIS GUN
AS THE SMOKED CLEARED BLOOD STAINED THE DUSTY STREET
THE OUTLAW LAY DYIN AT THE RANGERS FEET

E--3-5-4-3 Bm

HE SAT IN THE SADDLE AND HE SHOOK HIS HEAD
HIS GUN STILL HOT, HIS FATHER STILL DEAD
AS THE SUN SET ON THE DAY HE WAITED SO LONG FOR
HE SAW JUSTICE BELONGS TO THE LAW BUT VENGEANCE IS THE LORDS

REPEAT CHORUS
