The Man With A Gun

This song was created for Game of Bands round 113 : "Once Upon a Time in the West"

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]

It was summer in the good old texas
the sun shined nice-n and high
I stopped my truck near this bar
and ordered some good old texas moonshine

The bar smelled of cigarettes
and beer mixed with mischief
but then the sweet strawberry mist hit me
the sweet lass passed me with a smile

Oh I dn't know why
but in my heart I knew that she may be the one


[chorus]
I am a man with a gun
Man of hard words and a bitter heart
but boy that woman got me
lord! she shot me through my heart

And I couldn't help it
there was no way I could help it
that woman got me
lord! she shot me through my heart

[Verse 2]
i have waited too long for somone
I said as she sat next to me
she smiled and leaned on me to kiss
and then she kissed my cheek

We danced all night to the songs I don't remember
and I drank more than I usually did
she took me her place
we didn't sleep till it was half past six

[chorus]
I am a man with a gun
Man of hard words and a bitter heart
but boy that woman got me
lord! she shot me through my heart

And I couldn't help it
there was no way I could help it
that woman got me
lord! she shot me through my heart

[verse]

I woke up with my hand searching for her
in the bed just next to me
the girl was long gone left a note next to lamp
big letters "baby I am sorry"

you are a man with a gun
Man of hard words and a bitter heart
I will treasure every moment that I spent with you
but thats a fling I dont want to start

I am a man with a gun
Man of hard words and bitter heart
[Exit]
