lyrics

YOUR GUN
Thomas Gilmore / Bill Keyes / Peter Nardolillo / Jay Clementi

It was cold and storming that day
That I walked into the county VA
Ma’am I’ve never been here before
She said, All I need is your last four
Sorry to say but we just learned, there was a fire in St. Louis
And all of your records have burned

So what you’re trying to say
Is there's more bullets coming my way
I gotta tell you ma'am it's hard to believe
This country’s turning its back on me
After everything I've done, living and dying by your gun

She said, Can you call somebody that served with you
To verify that your story is true
Ma'am all the proof is on that wall, everybody I knew,
There's no one left to call

So are you trying to say
There's more bullets coming my way
I gotta tell you ma'am it's hard to believe
This country’s turning its back on me
After everything I've done, living and dying by your gun

I'm hurting right now
Must be some mistake
I'm all out of rounds
Let me get this straight

Are you trying to say
There's more bullets coming my way
I gotta tell you ma’am it's hard to believe
This country’s turning its back on me
After everything I've done, just another American son
Living and dying by your gun
