I get a little wound up over things I hear on the news.
People getting conned out of their savings, muggers and other no good dross.
This song may be an overkill in it's meaning but it makes me feel better to get it out.
I wrote it when I read an ad requesting a song that was dark and moody in the americana genre.
Is it too strong?

If I had a gun. ©2018 Vic Arnold

Ch.
If I had a gun I would shoot you down.
Give you back the pain
I'd spit upon your face if you came around
Take back the shame
V1
Crouching in the shadows, hiding in the night
Your pathetic thrill
What makes you think that you got the right
to those few dollar bills
V2
Knocking at the door, smile on your face
You creep on through
Vague resemblance to the human race
It's a natural way for you
Ch.
V3
Scammers in your mail box. Scammers on the phone.
Send details to this link
A disgraced prince from an outlaw state
Something about him stinks
V4
Before you die you'd write a short note
and take the blame
Then pin it onto your blood stained coat
and bleed your life away
Ch.


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.
