Hank Williams Jr. - I've Got Rights Lyrics

I went down to the Mary Cater Paint Store
I said, give me one of them Smith & Wesson Magnum .44s
Cause there's a man that the law let loose and justice was not done
This man he killed my wife and my only little son

I'll never forget the way he looked all through the trial
He had a big name lawyer and he had that smirky smile
Oh yeah, he got you off on a technicality
But you'd have to grow wings and fly to ever get away from me

Cause I got rights
I got rights too
And this time there won't be no damn lawyers and systems to protect you
But I'm gonna read you - I'm gonna read you your rights
You got the right to know that you're gonna go to hell one of these black nights

And when the trial was over he had the nerve to say that's the way it goes
I said, well hoss you better get you some corks cause your gonna have to plug up a few holes
I guess he thought I was talkin' just to pass away time
But he kinda looks different now on his knees beggin' for his life

Hey, I got rights
I got some rights too
And this time there won't be no damn lawyers and systems to protect you
But I'm gonna read you - I'm gonna read you your rights
Cause I want you to know that your gonna go to hell one of these black nights

Yeah, and this time there aint no damn lawyers and systems to save you

Hank Williams Jr. I've Got Rights Comments
  1. 2 Pimp Chimp

    .44 magnums are only typically used for squirrel hunting.

    Can't really trust them for anything bigger.

  2. Quentin Miller

    Anyone know what Hank Williams Jr's logo is? The same as Ruger. I'm surprised that he didn't say " Ruger Redhawk 44s.

  3. Jim C.

    Had a CI kill my son. Thought he was golden. They tried to sweep it under the rug. Took almost 2 years but the POS was convicted of murdering my only son of 19 years.

  4. Jack Edwards

    Forgot about this old gem love this song

  5. Dustin Leitheiser

    I always say to put serial killers and child predators in a room with one of there victims dads and look the door from the outside


    Mary Carter paint store still exists in Cullman, Al after all these years

  7. kim Martin

    44 mag.

  8. stephen sherman

    Same for those with a pantigam gaval. I'd love to see that in the church.

  9. Dl Allysin Kay

    How we roll these weak ass people need to go home,Look at the Boston bomber they should have killed that coward but now he has movies and book deals and many others the system protects

  10. Cole Kirtley

    Liberal think murderers have more rights than unborn babies.


    So true, but then again they do have a mental disability, so you can't really blame them for having mashed potatoes for brains.

  11. bevy bear

    . the people you can see face to face aint the problem.
    2yrs i have not had a safe email account after repeatedly changing it. 4 phones each hacked by the same people my privacy breached
    im not staying silent anymore Kathy Barr
    or so she says is primary on this group ..they wont face me they harrass and stalk steal lie manipulate and threaten daily
    but only hidden behind a dark computer screen
    weak ass punks & pussies

  12. John Spurlock

    The puppet government put in place by the global corporations who are Satan worshipers from the beginning. I've done everything they could do to destroy people's religion people's families people's traditions people's means of making a living

    I've got rights and this is America!!! Well said Hank Jr!!!!

  89. Frank Jeffers

    He went to the paint store to buy a .44??

    Not how I'd doit

    back in the days of Great America guns were commonly purchased in hardware stores, which a paint store would also double as.


    The Mary Carter Paint Store that Hank references is in Cullman, AL and is still open today. Think of it more like a Hardware/General Store & Sporting Goods than just a Paint Store.


    Harry Bawlsack

    @rcw372 you can also buy dildos and other sex toys and pleasurables there also. I was just there couple months ago. Bought a .30-30 and a rocket dildo and lube for the ol lady

  90. Michelle Ayotte

    As a mother who lost a daughter to a POS driver I would do what this song says. She was a loving 2 yr old then . Miss her every day, still.
