(This song was originally released by the songwriter titled Whiskey And A Gun)

Capo 2

C                  G                          Am
Looking back now I probably should've let him run

He smelled like gin with a hint of her
Up 'til then I wasn't sure
       G                                                D
But he swaggered by and said "The boys said to tell you hey"

And I was kicked back in his easy chair
Holding a fifth, tapping the barrel
     G                                       D
Of a fresh cleaned, steel blue, polished up .38

And I was kind of hoping he'd at least look scared
But all he said was "Okay, she was good and you don't dare"

C                  G                          Am   F   
Looking back now I probably should've let him run
C            G                 Am     F 
Paybacks are hell where I come from
        C                          G                   Am         
And any fool should know you don't look a woman in the eye and smile
                           D              F                      Am  C G   
When she knows what you've done and she's holding, whiskey and a gun

The sun shines grey in the prison yard
Life to go was goin' hard
When the warden started gettin' sweet on me

He drug me up to his room one night
Poured me some 'ski, gave me a light
And I smoked slow and waited 'till he was done

And I thought that was that 'Till he got rough and I fought back
And when I grabbed his pistol he laughed and said "Girl, you ain't got the guts"


They're strappin' me down and I'm scared to die
And I ain't the kinda girl to cry
But I find myself begging God for mercy

My hands are cold as I start to slip
Sodium thiopental drips
The room goes black and I wonder if He heard me
