I Didn't Know The Gun Was Loaded - Jean Shepard lyrics

I Didn't Know The Gun Was Loaded
Hank Fort & Herb Leighton 1949

LYRICS ONLY

Oh Miss Effie was her name

Through the west she won her fame

Being handy with the gun

But she drove the men insane

Cause she'd whip out her pistol

And shoot most any guy

And sing out this alibi

I didn't know the gun was loaded

And I'm so sorry my friend

I didn't know the gun was loaded

And I'll never, never do it again

But one night she made a slip

Shot the sheriff in the hip

So the law it took a hand

And made Effie take the stand

And she pled, 'oh your honor

I'll know you turn me loose

When you hear my one excuse'

I didn't know the gun was loaded

And I'm so sorry my friend

I didn't know the gun was loaded

And I'll never, never do it again

I didn't know the gun was loaded

But regarding the gun that I toted

All I did was hold it high and go ...

BANG, PING, HUHH, ZSSS

I'll never, never do it again

INSTRUMENTAL

Yes the jury all agreed

That Miss Effie should be freed

But the sheriff's jealous wife

Was indignant (yes, indeed)

So she borrowed a pistol

And shot this village belle

And sang as Miss Effie fell

I didn't know the gun was loaded

And I'm so sorry my friend

I didn't know the gun was loaded

And I'll never, never do it again

I didn't know the gun was loaded

But regarding the gun that I toted

All I did was hold it high and go ...

BANG, PING, HUHH, ZSSS

I'll never, never do it again
