"Don't Jump the Gun" as written by and Billy Davis Carl Smith....
Gonna kill a man, momma
Pistol in my hand, momma
Devil in my blood, swimming
Stroking my pain away

Saw him after school, momma
Made me for a fool, momma
Devil in my blood, swimming
Stroking my pain away

Momma said "son, son, don't jump the gun.
The pain came on fast, it ain't never gonna last."
Momma said "son, son, you ain't the only one--
The tables will turn, but you can't turn them like that."

Gonna take that pain, momma
Blow it in his brains, momma,
Devil in my blood, grinning
That boy will rue the day

Saw him after school, momma
Made me for a fool, momma
Devil in my blood, grinning
That boy will rue the day

Momma said "son, son, don't jump the gun.
The pain came on fast, it ain't never gonna last."
Momma said "son, son, you ain't the only one--
The tables will turn, but you can't turn them like that."

A pistol in my hand
I'm gonna make them understand
