MAN BEHIND THE GUN, THE (Ned Miller) Hank Snow - 1963 Ned Miller - 1963 (The man behind the gun) They gave me the job of the sheriff Because I'm good with a gun Now, how could I ever refuse them They really needed someone I tried to explain to my baby But still she left me one day She said she'd return to me only If I threw my six-gun away And I'm not supposed to be lonely To need or love anyone I'm just supposed to be only The man behind the gun Then one day she sent me a letter She said I want you to know I miss you and my heart is breakin' I love you and I need you so The stage, it was leavin' next mornin' I'd be on that stage without fail Then someone shot old Jimmy Taylor And I took out on his trail But I'm not supposed to be lonely To need or love anyone I'm just supposed to be only The man behind the gun Well, three weeks it took, I remember Before I'd tracked the man down And when I returned with the prisoner It was the talk of the town Too late to go to my baby They buried her deep in the clay I spend all these hours in the saddle And draw a heartache for pay (But he's not supposed to be lonely) (To need or love anyone) I'm just supposed to be only The man behind the gun (The man behind the gun) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
