The Devils Right Hand Chords
Even though this song has many different covers, Bob Seger really did a good job on this one. 
It doesn't have the strict country feel. This one has a classic rock/road tune kind of feel. 
I think the organ/keyboard in the back adds Seger's signature to this song.

Standard Tuning - No Capo

Song: 


 G
'Bout the time my daddy left to fight the big war
  G                                D
Saw my first pistol in a general store
       D
In a general store, when I was thirteen
  D                                G
Thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
      G
So I asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
                                          D
Mama dropped a dozen eggs she really blew up
    D
She really blew up, she didn't understand
D                           G
Mama said the pistol was the devil's right hand


Chorus:

    C
The devil's right hand
    G       C     G
The devil's right hand
D                           G
Mama said the pistol was the devil's right hand.

    G
My very first pistol was a cap and ball colt.
 G                                                D
Shoot as fast as lightnin' but it loads a might slow.
        D                        
Loads a might slow. And soon I found out it'll
   D                          G
Get you into trouble,but it can't get you out.
   G                          
Bought a year later bought got a colt 45.
   G                                    D
Called a peace maker, but I never knew why.
 D                 
I never knew why, I didn't understand.
D                           G
Mama said the pistol was the devil's right hand.


     C
The devil's right hand 
      G      C      G
The devil's right hand
D                             G
Mama said the pistol was the devil's right hand

      C                      
The devil's right hand 
      G      C     G
The devil's right hand
D                             G
Mama said the pistol was the devil's right hand

*Interlude*

 G          
Got into a card game in a crumbling town
  G                                         D        
Caught a miner cheating so I shot the dog down
  D                                 
Shot the dog down, watched the man fall
  D                                G
Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw

   G 
The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
  G                                   D
Asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I said
 D                       
Not guilty I said, you've got the wrong man
  D                                  G
Nothing touched the pistol but the devil's right hand

      C
The devil's right hand
      G       C    G
The devil's right hand
 D                                    G
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

     C     
The devil's right hand
      G       C    G
The devil's right hand
 D                             G
Mama said the pistol was the devil's right hand

Bob Seger (born May 5, 1945) is an American rock and roll singer-songwriter and musician.

After years of local Detroit-area success, recording and performing in the mid-1960s, Seger achieved superstar status by the mid-1970s and continuing through the 1980s with the Silver Bullet Band. A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger was first inspired by Little Richard and Elvis Presley. He wrote and recorded songs that dealt with blue-collar themes. Seger has recorded many rock and roll hits, including "Night Moves", "We've Got Tonight", "Like a Rock" and also co-wrote the Eagles number one hit "Heartache Tonight." His iconic signature song "Old Time Rock and Roll" was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. With a career spanning five decades, Seger continues to perform and record today.

Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
