Bbm               Db                     Gb
My daddy's got a gun, my daddy's got a gun
                 A
My daddy's got a gun, you better run
Bbm               Db                     Gb

Verse:
Bbm                  Db  
It started with the hay loft a-creaking
Gb                            A
Well it just started in the hay loft
Bbm            Db  
With his long John's on Pop went a-creeping
Gb                       A F
Out to barn out to the hay


Bbm                    Db  
Young lovers and they are not sleeping
Gb                   A
Young lovers in the hay loft
Bbm                  Db  
With his gun turned on Pop went a-creeping
Gb                          A
Out to the barn out to the hay loft

Chorus:
Bbm               Db                     Gb

My daddy's got a gun, you better run
Bbm               Db                     Gb
My daddy's got a gun, my daddy's got a gun
                 A
My daddy's got a gun, ga ga ga ga ga ga

Young lovers with their legs tied up in knots
Gb                       A
Young lovers with their legs tied up in knots
Bbm                     Db  
With his long tall gun Pop went a-creeping
Gb                    A
To blow the hay loft dead head straight of
