Me and a Gun (Tori Amos)

Me and a Gun

Me and a Gun
5 A.M.
Friday morning
Thursday night
Far from sleep
I’m still up and driving
Can’t go home
Obviously
So I’ll just change direction
Cause they’ll soon know where I live
And I wanna live
Got a full tank and some chips

It was me and a gun
And a man on my back
And I sang « holy holy »
as he buttoned down his pants
You can laugh
It’s kind of funny things you think
In times like these
Like I haven’t seen Barbados
So I must get out of this

Yes I wore a slinky red thing
Does that mean I should spread
For you, your friends, your father, Mr. Ed

Me and a gun
And a man
On my back
But I haven’t seen Barbados
And I know what this means
Me and Jesus a few years back
Used to hang and he said
« It’s your choice babe just remember
I don’t think you’ll be back in three days time
So you choose well »
Tell me what’s right
Is it my right to be on my stomach
of Fred’s Seville

Me and a gun
And a man
On my back
But I haven’t seen Barbados
So I must get out of this

Do you know Carolina
Where the biscuits are soft and sweet?
These things go through you head
When there’s a man on your back
And you’re pushed flat on your stomach
It’s not a classic Cadillac

Me and a gun
And a man
On my back
But I haven’t seen Barbados
So I must get out of this
No I haven’t seen Barbados
So I must get out of this

Tori Amos, 1991
