Monday Music: Gunslinger

 

Songwriter: John Fogerty

Lookin’ out across this town
Kinda makes me wonder how
All the things that make us great
Got left so far behind

This used to be a peaceful place
Decent folks hard workin’ ways
Now they hide behind locked doors
Afraid to speak their minds

I think we need a gunslinger
Somebody tough to tame this town
I think we need a gunslinger
There’ll be justice all around

Someone let the fences go
Wild eyed bunch moved in you know
Shootin’ up the streets shoutin’ everybody down
Dogs all runnin’ loose

Wrecked the papers, closed the school
Tired old judge got roughed up too
No one left to make a stand
They whisper, “What’s the use?”

I think we need a gunslinger
Somebody tough to tame this town
I think we need a gunslinger
There’ll be justice all around

I think we need a gunslinger
Somebody tough to tame this town
I think we need a gunslinger
There’ll be justice all around

I think we need a gunslinger
Somebody tough to tame this town
I think we need a gunslinger
There’ll be justice all around
