Lyrics


Life is so strange when its changin', yes indeed

Well I've seen the hard times and the pressure's been on me

But I keep on workin' like the workin' man do

And I've got my act together, gonna walk all over you


[chorus]

Gimme back my bullets

Put 'em back where they belong

Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun

Ain't gonna see no more damage done

Gimme back my bullets


Sweet talkin' people done ran me out of town

And I drank enough whiskey to float a battleship around

But I'm leavin' this game one step ahead of you

And you will not hear me cry 'cause I do not sing the blues


[chorus]

Gimme back my bullets

Put 'em back where they belong

Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun

Ain't gonna see no more damage done

Gimme back, gimme back my bullets

Oh, put 'em back... where they belong


Been up and down since I turned seventeen

Well I've been on top, and then it seems I lost my dream

But I got it back, I'm feelin' better everyday

Tell all those pencil pushers, better get out of my way


[chorus]

Gimme back my bullets

Put 'em back where they belong

Ain't foolin' around, 'cause I done had my fun

Ain't gonna see no more damage done

Gimme back, gimme back my bullets

Oh put 'em back where they belong

Gimme back my bullets
