The first shot missed him, a mile away
The last shot got him, so they say
Oh, the last shot got him
Oh, the last shot got him


She cooked good biscuits, so they say

Oh, She got good business, so they say
She got good business, so they say
She got good business
Oh, she got good business


I wanna trade with you, so they say

Well, wanna trade with you

Oh you got good business, so they say
You got good business, so they say
You got good business
Oh, you got good business

First Shot Missed Him (strumming)

Nice to play strumming, vary the chords with
add9 chords, hammering down and letting up:

Strumming something like this gives that "jumping" play:

There is also a song called 'The Last Shot Got Him' by Cecil Mack and Chris Smith with
some other lyrics than the version by John Hurt. 'The first shot missed him by a nose,
and the next shot tore right through his clothes'. Cecil Mack and Chris Smith also tells
about the third, forth and fifth shot.
