I'm a cool 3 lbs of cold blue steel
I shoot even deader than the way I feel
made to fit right in your hand
why i'll never understand

I coulda been a hammer or a railroad spike
I coulda been a train rollin through the night
but they gave my voice such a terrible sound
that I wish they'd left me in the ground

I'm a peacemaker
don't know how I got my name
I'm a peacemaker
if I don't deserve the credit
why do I deserve the blame

When the lion lays down with the lamb
then you won't find me in nobody's hand
till that time I will remain
till the sinners lay down with the saints

I'm a peacemaker
don't know how I got my name
I'm a peacemaker
if I don't deserve the credit
why do I deserve the blame

I'm a peacemaker
don't know how I got my name
I'm a peacemaker
if I don't deserve the credit
why do I deserve the blame

I'm a cool 3 lbs of cold blue steel
I shoot even deader than the way I feel
