Ryan Horne - Deadman's Hand lyrics

I was born in Illinois my daddy was a man
Who never shot a gun or broke a law
He fought for freedom with his mouth, helped slaves escape the South
He could not understand where I went wrong; he could not understand where I went wrong
The Devil sang his song to me; heard it loud it set me free
Well I turned into an outlaw on the run
I left my home just as a kid, I got caught up in an incident
Taking lives and sleeping in the sun

I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand

I was born in Illinois my daddy was a man
Who never shot a gun or broke a law
He fought for freedom with his mouth, helped slaves escape the South
He could not understand where I went wrong; he could not understand where I went wrong
The Devil sang his song to me; heard it loud it set me free
Well I turned into an outlaw on the run
I left my home just as a kid, I got caught up in an incident
Taking lives and sleeping in the sun

I started on the trail for pay, drove a coach on Santa Fe
I joined the civil war a lonesome spy
The army came and summoned me, to fight another war you see
Felt I was born to sit and watch 'em die

I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand

I was born in Illinois my daddy was a man
Who never shot a gun or broke a law
He fought for freedom with his mouth, helped slaves escape the South
He could not understand where I went wrong; he could not understand where I went wrong
The Devil sang his song to me; heard it loud it set me free
Well I turned into an outlaw on the run
I left my home just as a kid, I got caught up in an incident
Taking lives and sleeping in the sun

The marshal of my town was killed; I took his badge and burned his will
I shot my deputy on accident
Well it never seemed to bother me, taking lives so guilty free
Like gamblin' just for booze and payin' rent

I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand

I was born in Illinois my daddy was a man
Who never shot a gun or broke a law
He fought for freedom with his mouth, helped slaves escape the South
He could not understand where I went wrong; he could not understand where I went wrong
The Devil sang his song to me; heard it loud it set me free
Well I turned into an outlaw on the run
I left my home just as a kid, I got caught up in an incident
Taking lives and sleeping in the sun

I lost all of the coin I made, from folding hands in poker games
When Jack McCall he snuck up from behind
He pulled his gun up to my head, took aim, the lights went red
As two black aces fell down by my side

I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
I am the devil with a dead man's hand
