son of the gun lyrics – desperado

words & music: snider/torme

born to face the dark alone
by his father’s guns he’ll right the wrong
following the man in black
through the desert, to the tower and back
n*body can stop a gun
words or looks never killed someone
n*body can stop a gun
it’s death; the final weapon
he’s the son of the gun
he’s the son of the gun
just the song of the gun
he’s the son of the gun
cold as steel and twice as hard
measuring his manhood by the yard
love and dying are his life
wears his father’s iron by his side
n*body ever stopped the gun
some tried now their days are done
n*body ever stopped the gun
it’s said like father, just like son
(repeat chorus)
he’s the last of days before
winning every battle, lost the war
three remain from the world of old
as he walks the prophecy unfolds
n*body ever stopped his guns
they do their work and the bodies thump
n*body ever stopped his guns
they spill some blood and the world moved on
(repeat chorus)
