 VERSE 2:
 [A]She reached[/] down and picked the gun up,
 that lay smokin in his h[E7]and.
 She said, "Father please forgive me;
 I can't make it without my [A]man."
 
 And she knew the gun was empty,
 
 And she knew she couldn't win,
 
 But her final prayer was answered
 
 When the rifles fired again.
