Cm               Eb                     Ab
My daddy's got a gun, my daddy's got a gun
                 B
My daddy's got a gun, you better run
Cm               Eb                     Ab

Verse:
Cm                  Eb  
It started with the hay loft a-creaking
Ab                            B
Well it just started in the hay loft
Cm            Eb  
With his long John's on Pop went a-creeping
Ab                       B G
Out to barn out to the hay


Cm                    Eb  
Young lovers and they are not sleeping
Ab                   B
Young lovers in the hay loft
Cm                  Eb  
With his gun turned on Pop went a-creeping
Ab                          B
Out to the barn out to the hay loft

Chorus:
Cm               Eb                     Ab

                 B
My daddy's got a gun, you better run
Cm               Eb                     Ab
My daddy's got a gun, my daddy's got a gun
                 B
My daddy's got a gun, ga ga ga ga ga ga

Young lovers with their legs tied up in knots
Ab                       B
Young lovers with their legs tied up in knots
Cm                     Eb  
With his long tall gun Pop went a-creeping
Ab                    B
To blow the hay loft dead head straight of

    As a replacment for Ab if the placement is too hard, I use Em and it sounds pretty good.
