G         C      G                 C  G
Now Smackwater Jack, he bought a shotgun
        G                                 C     G
'Cause he was in the mood for a little confrontation
         G
He just let it all hang loose
           C7
He didn't think about the noose
             D            C7
He couldn't take no more abuse
                     G   C    G
So he shot down the congregation

G          D        Em
You can't talk to a man 
         D      G      C
With a shotgun in his hand
(Shotgun)

(Play 1st two bars of intro)

     G                                   C  G
Now Big Jim the chief stood for law and order
     G                                            C   G
He called for the guard to come and surround the border
     G 
Now from his bulldog mouth
      C7
As he led the posse south
          D
Came the cry, "we got the right 
 C7                                    G     C    G
Clean up the streets for our wives and our daughters"

G          D        Em
You can't talk to a man 
         D             G     C
When he don't want to understand
C7                  G
No, no, no, no, no, no

(Repeat intro)

     G                                    C  G
The account of the capture wasn't in the papers
         G                                      C7     G   C  G
But you know, they hanged ole Smack right then instead of later 
              G
You know the people were quite pleased
            C7
'Cause the outlaw had been seized
            D               C7
And on the whole, it was a very good year 
C        G   C   G
For the undertaker

C                              D         Em
You know, you know, you can't talk to a man 
        D       G      C
With a shotgun in his hand
C               G
Shotgun in his hand

C                 G
Smackwater Jack, yeah 
C                         G
Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun
       C                         G
Yeah, Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun
 C                G     C  G
Smackwater Jack, yeah 
G                  G     C  G  G  C
Smackwater Jack, yeah 
 C              G
Talkin' about Smackwater Jack, yeah 
 C              G   
Talkin' about Smackwater Jack, oh yeah 
   
(Repeat intro)
