Words At Twenty Paces Lyrics

by Alabama

Just like a western movie
A challenge has been made
A shot was fired in anger
And pride stepped off the train

Won't we ever stop this
Killin' me and you
Till our hearts are up on Boot Hill
And there's nothing we can do?

Words at twenty paces
Anger at high noon
This house ain't big enough
For both of us, it's comin' soon

We'll finish off our happiness
And run hope out of town
With words at twenty paces
Lord, it's love we're gunnin' down

How did we ever lose
The dreams we used to share
The gentle touch, the words of love
The way we used to care?

Sometimes you words
Cut like a bullet in my side
Oh, which is more important
Wounded hearts or wounded pride?

I've got my ammunition
I know you've got yours too
We know each other's weakness
Lord, the damage we can do

Why can't we just step aside
And put our guns away?
Let love come like the cavalry
Ride in and save the day?

Words at twenty paces
Anger at high noon
This house ain't big enough
For both of us, it's comin' soon

We'll finish off our happiness
And run hope out of town
With words at twenty paces
Lord, it's love we're gunnin' down

Words at twenty paces
Anger at high noon
This house ain't big enough
For both of us, it's comin' soon

We'll finish off our happiness
And run hope out of town
With words at twenty paces
Lord, it's love we're gunnin' down
Words at twenty paces
