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

You can't talk to a man
With a shotgun in his hand

Now big Jim the chief stood for law and order
He called for the guard to come and surround the border

Now from his bulldog mouth as he led the posse South
Came the cry "We got to ride to clean up the street
For our wives and our daughters!"
You can't talk to a man
When he don't want to understand

The account of the capture wasn't in the papers
But you know, they hanged ole Smack right then instead of later
You know, the people were quite pleased
Because the outlaw had been seized and on the whole,
It was a very good year for the undertaker
You can't talk to a man with
A shotgun in his hand
