lyrics

I SLEPT WITH MY GUN
Curt Campbell / Mario Candela / Manny Orona / Radney Foster

t made me feel safe, it made me feel warm
Like my old teddy bear
I slept with my gun
I’d fire up a flare, to make sure we’re alone
Dug my hole a little deeper
And slept with my gun

Dreaming through that scope
I prayed they’d leave me alone
I couldn’t help wondering if I’d ever make it back home
One good night’s sleep is all I really ever wanted
I slept with my gun
I slept with my gun

When I got back
The whole world had changed
I ran my girl off... all I had left was my gun

Dreaming through that scope
It never leaves me alone
Still wondering if I’d ever make it back home
One good night’s sleep was all I ever really wanted
I slept with my gun
I slept with my gun

Now I don’t keep it under my pillow
Because the danger’s never gone
It’s somewhere disassembled
Cause I’ve stripped it to the bone
I don’t sleep with my gun
I don’t sleep with my gun

Dreaming through that scope
It never leaves me alone
Sometimes I still wonder if I made it home
One good night’s sleep is all I ever really wanted
I don’t sleep with my gun
