Gods & Guns Lyrics

by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Last night I heard this politician
Talkin' 'bout his brand new mission
Liked his plans but they came undone
When it got around to God & guns

I don't know how he grew up
But it sure wasn't down at the huntin' club
'Cause if it was he'd understand
Just a little bit more about the workin' man

God & guns keep us strong
That's what this country was founded on
Well, we might as well give up and run
If we let 'em take our God & guns

Out here in my neck of the woods
Where God is great and guns are good
You really can't know that much about 'em
If you think we're better off without 'em

Oh, there was a time we ain't forgot
You could rest all night with your doors unlocked
But there ain't nobody safe no more
So you say your prayers and you thank the Lord
For that peace maker in the dresser drawer

God & guns keep us strong
That's what this country, Lord, was founded on
Well, we might as well give up and run
If we let 'em take our God & guns

Yeah, we might as well give up and run
If we let 'em take our God & guns
Yeah, oh, God & guns

Don't let 'em take
Don't you let 'em take
Don't let 'em take our God & guns

Oh, God & guns, yeah, keep us strong
That's what this country, Lord, was founded on
Well, we might as well give up and run
If we let 'em take our God & guns

God & guns
