Ain't That a Kindness - Johnny Winter

It had rained for three days straight
But the sun was beginning to shine
Two riders were approachin'
But they were no friends of mine.
Called out for Hanna
And I kept here close to my side
Whistled for old Thunder
And my horse he was ready to ride

I give you everything I had babe
Ain't that kindness
I give you the good with the bad babe
Ain't that kindness
Don't you know I give you my love when you're sad babe
Ain't that kindness

Hmmm you know a man ain't nothing without his gun
You know a man ain't nothing without his gun

Took to the road six nights and days
Only then did we think it was safe
I heard the sound of 2 men approachin'
But they did not hesitate
Hanna she was cryin'
But she wouldn't let go of my leg
Thunder he was tired
Been a thinkin' of a better day

I give you everything I had babe
Ain't that kindness.
I give you the good with the bad babe
Ain't that kindness.
I give you my love when you're sad babe
Ain't that kindness.
Oh but you know a man ain't nothing without his gun
You know a man ain't nothing without his gun.

Two shots fired and two figures fell,
There was blood flowin' over the ground
Two men dead in the noon day sun
And they never ever made a sound.
Hanna she never forgave me
And I think I know the reason why
When I called out for Thunder
The horse he up and died.
I give you everything I had babe
Ain't that kindness.
Give you the good with the bad babe
Ain't that kindness.
Don't you know i give you my love when you're sad
Ain't that kindness.

Mh but you know a man ain't nothing without his gun
You know a man ain't nothing without his gun
You know a man ain't nothing without his gun.
