One Gun Salute

I read in the news ’bout a man and his wife
She took a lover and ruined his life
He couldn’t stand to see that gigolo
So one night when the cold wind blow
He got down low in the dirt & soot
And when he saw him he started to shoot

Gave him a one gun salute

I saw on the TV ’bout a man and his wealth
When he lost his millions he lost his mental health
He lay wounded by the stock market crash
So he took what was left of his cold hard cash
Bought a gun and went to his troubles’ root
Cornered his broker and he started to shoot

Gave him a one gun salute

I was walking down the street one day
When I took a shortcut down an alleyway
Got involved in a little Socratic dialogue
Making sense out of nothing at all
He asked me for my wallet, asked me for my loot
When I refused him well he started to shoot

Gave me a one gun salute

Bridge: Right now I should be in a hearse
Instead of in the arms of a beautiful nurse
She stays up all night and says prayers for me
She gives me life when she takes care of me

I wondered if we could be more than friends
Me and this Angel of Mercy who made me well again
So when I was checking out well she checked me in
She drew me a map on a paper napkin
So I went to her house later that night
She let me in and then she put out light
Love at first sight, there’s no dispute
Ooh baby, you’re just too cute

Gave her my one gun salute…
