I’ve Got Rights
By Hank Williams Jr

C(add9)   =   x32030

C(add9)   D    G    D

D                  C(add9)     G 
I went down to the Mary Carter paint store
        D                    C(add9)        G 
I said, “Give me one of them Smith & Wesson Magnum 44’s”
D                            C(add9)           G 
Cause there’s a man that the law let loose and justice was not done
F           G                     C(add9)     D
This man he killed my wife and my only little son

I’ll never forget the way he looked all through the trial
He had a big name lawyer and he had that smirky smile
Oh yea, he got off on a technicality
But you’ll have to grow wings and fly to ever get away from me

            G                     D 
Cause I got rights, I got rights, too
    F                        G
And this time there won’t be no damn lawyers
   C(add9)            D
Or systems to protect you
                G                                 D
Cause I’m gonna read you, I’m gonna read you your rights
             F                  G
You’ve got a right to know that you’re gonna go
   C(add9)                 D
To hell one of these black nights

When the trial was over, he had the nerve to say, “That’s the way it goes”
Well, I said, “Hoss, you better get some corks cause you’re gonna have to plug
up a few holes”
I guess he thought I was talking’ just to pass away time
But he kinda looks different now on his knees beggin’ for his life
