Hair Trigger Heart

	  		
Intro 
B  E  B  E  B  E  B  E 

Verse 
B 
Cowboys we are 
E                       B    E 
Cowboys we shall always be 
B 
Don?t let it end like this, boys 
E                           B    E 
Tell ?em I sense something? 

Verse 
         B                           E 
They say trouble rides a fast horse 
            B                      E 
They say forgiveness rides a mule 
   B 
Oh yeah, they say a lot of things 
E                            B      E 
That?s why I lived by my own rules 

Verse 
           B 
You know a man is seen in fragments 
  E                                B      E 
A scar, a limp, tattoos and broken teeth 
            B 
Scratch the surface on most men out here 
    E                               B      E 
And you?ll find two men hiding underneath 

Verse 
      B 
But I come not here to lecture you 
   E                              B               E 
Of good and evil, black or white, right or wrong 
     B 
I?ve come to sing my story 
        E                                  B            E 
I'm the Black Jack, baby, of all those old gipsy songs 

Verse 
        B 
A loose canon, they have called me 
  E                            B     E 
A half-cocked cowboy, falling apart 
        B 
With my war-bag full of cheap tricks 
E             B             F# 
Dead certain, mister, of my hair trigger heart 

tabchorus
B F# E B Oh baby, I got a hair trigger heart F# E I got a hair trigger heart

Verse B I've known love from every angle E B E I never learned the art of the graceful getaway B Yeah, the poetry eludes me, sir E B E I don?t give a damn what all the minor poets say Verse B "I?m not an alcoholic, I?m a drunk, there?s a difference E B E Set 'em up, kid, and make it smart" B I come from horse traders and half breeds E B F# And a savage long line of hair trigger hearts, yeah
tabchorus
B F# E B Oh baby, I got a hair trigger heart F# E B I got a hair trigger heart F# E I got a hair trigger heart
tab
Bridge G#m D#m All the old gunfighters are leaving town G#m C# F# Pistol packing mama, lay that pistol down E I?m still around B Lord, I've got one more round F# And I sure hit the mark E With my hair trigger heart, yeah Instrumental B E B E B E B E Verse B E At the far end of eternity, you will find me B E At a pub they call The Sword 'n' Highwayman B I'll have a wax museum moustache E B E Might be missing several fingers on my trigger hand Verse B I?ll have forgotten half the alphabet E B E My name, my age, my Chinese laundry mark B Between instinct and oblivion, mister E B F# I will always hang on to this hair trigger heart
tabchorus
B F# E B Oh baby, I got a hair trigger heart F# E B I got a hair trigger heart F# E B I got a hair trigger heart F# E I got a hair trigger heart
tab
Outro B Cowboys we are E B E B E B E B E B Cowboys we shall always be
