Chorus:
Fm               Ab                     Db
My daddy's got a gun, my daddy's got a gun
                 E
My daddy's got a gun, you better run
Fm               Ab                     Db

Verse:
Fm                  Ab  
It started with the hay loft a-creaking
Db                            E
Well it just started in the hay loft
Fm            Ab  
With his long John's on Pop went a-creeping
Db                       E C
Out to barn out to the hay


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

Chorus:
Fm               Ab                     Db

My daddy's got a gun, you better run
Fm               Ab                     Db
My daddy's got a gun, my daddy's got a gun

My daddy's got a gun, ga ga ga ga ga ga

Young lovers with their legs tied up in knots
Db                       E
Young lovers with their legs tied up in knots
Fm                     Ab  
With his long tall gun Pop went a-creeping
Db                    E
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.
