Title of strangest gun song goes to Tom Waits, "16 Shells from a .30'06"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VDTa7uXUp4

But the GREATEST song about a gun ever written, and a song that will still be heard in a thousand years time long after the Fab Four are forgotten, is THIS one:

Ringo...Lorne Green.

He lay face down in the desert sand
Clutching his six-gun in his hand
Shot from behind, I thought he was dead
But under his heart was an ounce of lead
But a spark still burned so I used my knife
And late that night I saved the life of Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . .)

I nursed him till the danger passed
The days went by, he mended fast
Then from dawn till setting sun
He practiced with that deadly gun
And hour on hour I watched in awe
No human being could match the draw of Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

One day we rode the mountain crest
And I went east and he went west
I took to law and wore a star
While he spread terror near and far
With lead and blood he gained such fame
All throught the West they feared the name of Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

I knew someday I'd face the test
Which one of us would be the best
And sure enough the word came down
That he was holed up in the town
I left the posse out in the street
And I went in alone to meet Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

They said my speed was next to none
But my lightning draw had just begun
When I heard a blast that stung my wrist
The gun went flying from my fist
And I was looking down the bore
Of the deadly .44 of Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

They say that was the only time
That anyone had seen him smile
He slowly lowered his gun and then
He said to me "We're even, friend"
And so at last I understood
That there was still a spark of good in Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

I blocked the path of his retreat
He turned and stepped into the street
A dozen guns spit fire and lead
A moment later, he lay dead
The town began to shout and cheer
Nowhere was there shed a tear for Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

The story spread throughout the land
That I had beaten Ringo's hand
And it was just the years, they say
That made me put my guns away
But on his grave they can't explain
The tarnished star above the name of Ringo

(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )
(Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

One More.

Johnson County War...Chris LeDoux

Headed for Wyoming, in 1882..A woman, a team, and a wagon.
Gonna make our dreams come true.
Settled in the foothills of the big horn mountain slope.
Life is sweet we lived on the meat, of the deer and the antelope.

We cut house logs on the moutain, with the team we hauled 'em down.
Peeled 'em and we stacked 'em up, plowed some bottom ground.
Traded for some cattle, and turned 'em out on the range.
The skies were blue and we never knew...How things were gonna change.

Ole powder river, you're muddy and wide,
how many men have died...upon your shores.
When you brand a man a rustler, he's gotta take a side.
There's no middle ground in this Johnson Country War.

Well, the neighbors stopped by yesterday,
while I was outside choppin' some wood.
And they filled me in on the local news, ain't none of it sounded good,
Said, they'd been some cattle stealin', by some no count outlaw bands.
We'd all been branded rustler's by the big ranchers of this land.

Well it was us against the cattlemen, and the years just made it worse.
First the drought, then the tough winter,
Johnson County had been dealt a curse,
Then their came the story about the two "dry gulch" attacks:
Ranger Jones and John Tisdale both been shot in the back...

Oh, Powder River, you're muddy and you're wide,
How many men have died upon your shores.
When you brand a man a rustler, he's gotta take a side.
There's no middle ground in this Johnson County War.

Then last night at supper time, riders stopped by chance.
They said cattleman and hired guns, just burned the Kaycee Ranch,
Two men had died this mornin', shot down in the snow.
Now the vigilante army was marchin' for Buffalo.

Well the county was in an uproar, an every man saddled up to ride.
Caught the cattlemen at the TA Ranch, and surrounded all four sides.
We hailed the house with bullets and swore we'd make 'em pay.
But the calvery came across the plains, and once again saved the day.

Well, they marched 'em off to Cheyenne, and no one went to jail.
The cattlemen we're all turned loose, and the hired guns hit the trail.
And I guess the only justice, wasn't much to say the least.
Last winter me and mine ate mighty fine on the cattle baron's beef.

Oh Powder River, you're muddy and you're wide.
How many men have died upon your shores.
When you brand a man a rustler, he's gotta take a side.
There's no middle ground in this Johnson County War.
There's no middle ground in this Johnson County War...

Robert Johnson - 1936


If I send for my baby, and she don't come
If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

And if she gets unruly, thinks she don't wan' do
And if she gets unruly and thinks she don't wan' do
Take my 32-20, now, and cut her half in two

She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light
She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light
I got a 32-20, got to make the caps alright

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gonna shoot my gatling
I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gotta shoot my gatling gun
You made me love you, now your man have come

Aha, baby, where you stayed last night
Aha, baby, where you stayed last night
You got your hair all tangled and you ain't talking right

Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
I got a 32-20 now, and it's a burning

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Wisconsin sure can't help her none

Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
You didn't come home until the sun was shining bright

A-ho boy, I just can't take my rest
A-ho boy, I just can't take my rest
With this 32-20 laying up and down my breast

Then out of the sun rode a man with a gun,
and Bart was his name
Yes, Bart was his name

He rode a Blazing Saddle ....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-HRbsejTyw


He rode a blazing saddle
He wore a shining star
His job to offer battle to bad men near and far

He conquered fear and he conquered hate
He turned dark night into day
He made his blazing saddle a torch to light the way

When outlaws ruled the west
And fear filled the land
A cry went out for a man with guts to take the west in hand
They needed a man who was brave and true with justice for all as his aim

Then out of the sun rode a man with a gun
And Bart was his name
Yes Bart was his name

He rode a blazing saddle
He wore a shining star
His job to offer battle to bad men near and far

He conquered fear and he conquered hate
He turned dark night into day
He made his blazing saddle a torch to light the way

Barrel of a Gun - Depeche Mode

Do you mean this horny creep
Set upon weary feet
Who looks in need of sleep
That doesn't come

This twisted, tortured mess
This bed of sinfulness
Who's longing for some rest
And feeling numb

What do you expect of me
What is it you want
Whatever you've planned for me
I'm not the one

A vicious appetite
Visits me each night
And won't be satisfied
Won't be denied

An unbearable pain
A beating in my brain
That leaves the mark of Cain
Right here inside

What am I supposed to do
When everything that I've done
Is leading me to conclude
I'm not the one

Whatever I've done
I've been staring down the barrel of a gun

Is there something you need from me
Are you having your fun
I never agreed to be
Your holy one

Whatever I've done
I've been staring down the barrel of a gun

Especially with Layne Staley's voice.. If you DO like this song.. I HIGHLY suggest you listen to the acoustic version from MTV Unplugged.

The Unplugged version
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0UkxWduyGQ



Ain't found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Wife and kids household pet
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere

Here they come to snuff the rooster, aww yeah, hey yeah
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he ain't gonna die
No, no, no, ya know he ain't gonna die (x2)

Walkin' tall machine gun man
They spit on me in my home land
Gloria sent me pictures of my boy
Got my pills 'gainst mosquito death
My Buddy's breathin' his dyin' breath
Oh god please won't you help me make it through

Here they come to snuff the rooster, aww yeah
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he ain't gonna die
No, no, no ya know he ain't gonna die

As an 0331 Machine Gunner in the USMC, this song has been played more than a few times before patrol in Iraq and Afghan.

Willie Nelson on Red Headed Stranger when the preacher shoots the saloon girl who is grabbing at the reins of his unfaithful wife's horse.

I'll second Warren Zevon Mikee,

From the same album "Lawyers Guns & Money"

The "centerfold" of this album cover was a beautiful blue S&W Mod 29 sitting in the middle of a plate of peas, carrots and potatoes.:confused:

He called the album "Excitable Boy", go figure.

Lyrics for Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner

Written By Warren Zevon & David Lindell c. 1976 Zevon Music/BMI

Roland was a warrior from the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire, fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray

Through sixty-six and seven they fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers, knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled the Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living and to help out the Congolese

Roland the Thompson gunner...

His comrades fought beside him - Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners, Roland was the best
So the CIA decided they wanted Roland dead
That son-of-a-bitch Van Owen blew off Roland's head

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Norway's bravest son
Time, time, time
For another peaceful war
But time stands still for Roland
'Til he evens up the score
They can still see his headless body stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

Roland searched the continent for the man who'd done him in
He found him in Mombassa in a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun - he didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body from there to Johannesburg

Roland the headless Thompson gunner...
The eternal Thompson gunner
still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later but he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon, in Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland's Thompson gun and bought it

:what:

"Guns of Brixton" by The Clash

When they kick in your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting in death row

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, Guns of Brixton

The money feels good
And your life you like it well
But surely your time will come
As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like Ivan
BORN under the Brixton sun
His game is called survivin'
At the end of the harder they come

You know it means no mercy
They caught him with a gun
No need for the Black Maria
Goodbye to the Brixton sun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh-the guns of Brixton

When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
And even shoot us
But oh- the guns of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement
Waiting in death row
His game was survivin'
As in heaven as in hell

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton
Oh, the guns of Brixton

Kodiak,
I can't help but to add, 32-20 Blues was actually written and performed by Skip James first ( though it was titled 22-20 Blues). RJs version was good, but Skip's was better (as Skip James is the superior Delta Blues man :neener:). I have to say the original is my all time favorite gun song. You'd be hard pressed to find better a musical genre as raw and perfect as Delta Blues.

easyg,
Good shot on Guns of Brixton. It's definitely one of my favorites too. I grew up on that song/band. It has a very special place in my music loving heart.

Marshall Tucker Band
Fire on the Mountain
Took my fam'ly away from my Carolina home
Had dreams about the West and started to roam
Six long months on a dust covered trail
They say heaven's at the end but so far it's been hell
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

We were diggin' and siftin' from five to five
Sellin' everything we found just to stay alive
Gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
Sinnin' was the big thing, lord and Satan was his star
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

Dance hall girls were the evenin' treat
Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street
Men were shot down for the sake of fun
Or just to hear the noise of their forty-four guns
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

Now my widow she weeps by my grave
Tears flow free for her man she couldn't save
Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame
All for a useless and no good worthless claim

And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there
Fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there
Waitin' for me there

The title is a reference to the often-mistranslated quotation from the German play Schlageter, -- “When I hear the word 'culture', that's when I reach for my revolver."

The actual quote is "Wenn ich Kultur höre ... entsichere ich meinen Browning!" This translates as: "Whenever I hear [the word] 'culture'... I remove the safety from my Browning!"

I'll add another one.

Utah Carol by Marty Robbins.

And now my friends you've asked me what makes me sad and still
And why my brow is darkened like the clouds upon the hill
Run in your ponies closer and I'll tell to you my tale
Of Utah Carol my partner and his last ride on the trail

We rode the range together and rode it side by side
I loved him like a brother, and I wept when Utah died
We were rounding up one morning when work was almost done
When on his side the cattle started on a frightened run

Underneath the saddle that the boss's daughter rode
Utah that very morning had placed a bright red robe
So the saddle might ride easy for Lenore his little friend
And it was this red blanket that brought him to his end

The blanket was now dragging behind her on the ground
The frightened cattle saw it and charged it with a bound
Lenore then saw her danger and turned her pony's face
And leaning in the saddle tied the blanket to its place

But in leaning lost her balance, fell in front of that wild tide
"Lay still Lenore I'm coming" were the words that Utah cried
His faithful pony saw her and reached her in a bound
I thought he'd been successful, and raised her from the ground

But the weight upon the saddle had not been felt before
His backcinch snapped like thunder and he fell by Lenore
Picking up the blanket he swung it over his head
And started cross the prairie, "Lay still Lenore" he said

When he got the stampede turned and saved Lenore his friend
He turned to face the cattle and meet his fatal end
His six gun flashed like lightning, the report rang loud and clear
As the cattle rushed and killed him he dropped the leading steer

On his funeral morning I heard the preacher say
I hope we'll all meet Utah at the roundup far away
Then they wrapped him in a blanket that saved his little friend
And it was this red blanket that brought him to his end

And...

Remember the Alamo by Johnny Cash


A hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die
By the line that he drew with his sword when the battle was high
Any man that will fight to the death cross over
But if you want to live you'd better fly
And over the line went a hundred and seventy nine

Hey Santa Anna we're killing your soldiers below
That men wherever they go will remember the Alamo

Ol' Bowie lay dying but his powder was ready and dry
Flat on his back Bowie killed them a few in reply
And young Davy Crockett was singing and laughing with gallantry fierce in his eyes
For God and for freedom a man more than willing to die

Hey Santa Anna...

They sent a young scout from the battlements bloody and loud
With the words of farewell from a garrison valiant and proud
Grieve not little darling my dying if Texas is sovereign and free
We'll never surrender and ever with liberty be

Hey Santa Anna...

Then, of course, there is Hoyt Axton's 'Mr Winchester's Gun.' And as long as we are in the twang and sang genre there is Tom T. Hall's 'Turn It On,Turn It On,Turn It On' or nearly anything by Johnny Cash.

And last and definitely least the favorite song on the oldies stations in Lafayette...

"When Bonnie and Clyde, went walking through the sunshine.
A half a dozen carbines opened up on them."

One more and I'll stop...promise.

Just one from "The War." No idea who wrote it, I know it from a Bobby Horton CD.

Riding a raid...

'Tis old Stonewall the Rebel that leans on his sword,
And while we are mounting prays low to the Lord:
"Now each cavalier that loves honor and right,
Let him follow the feather of Stuart tonight."

Come tighten your girth and slacken your rein;
Come buckle your blanket and holster again;
Try the click of your trigger and balance your blade,
For he must ride sure that goes riding a raid.

Now gallop, now gallop to swim or to ford!
Old Stonewall, still watching, prays low to the Lord:
"Goodbye, dear old Rebel! The river's not wide,
And Maryland's lights in her window to guide."

There's a man in the White House with blood on his mouth!
If there's knaves in the North, there are braves in the South.
We are three thousand horses, and not one afraid;
We are three thousand sabres and not a dull blade.

Then gallop, then gallop by ravines and rocks!
Who would bar us the way take his toll in hard knocks;
For with these points of steel, on the line of the Penn
We have made some fine strokes and we'll make 'em again.

GRINGO PISTOLERO
Allen Wayne Damron, Tim Henderson

When the bandit Chico Cano crossed the river at Boquillas,
Stole the young bride of the rancher Juan Otero,
Juan caught up his fastest mare, and up to Marathon he rode,
To hire himself a gringo pistolero.

Send the word along the river; tell it through the borderland,
That the hound of death is howling after Chico Cano's band.
Juan will seal their fate as surely as the rising of the sun,
With the guns of the Gringo Pistolero.

The round hat of a trooper cast a shadow 'cross his eyes,
As he listened to the tale of Juan Otero.
At the name of Chico Cano there could be no talk of price,
Just the Gringo's vow of vengeance: "Yo arrero."

He oiled his big Colt automatics, and by daylight he was gone.
With the coming cold and darkness he rode into Castollon,
And a drunken bandit caught there read the message, "Talk, or die!"
In the eyes of the Gringo Pistolero.

Where the Canyon Colorado twists its way among the rocks
And the ribbon of the sky is long and narrow,
In a jacal of adobe bruised and tied up on the floor
Wept the sweet wife the rancher Juan Otero.

Bandit mirrors in the cliff top flash the message "Now he comes"
Asked the number of his followers, the number of their guns.
The aviso flashed to Chico like the falling of a stone:
"He comes alone, the Gringo Pistolero."

Hidden high above the canyon where the falcon rides the wind,
Chico's best hawkeyed aviso, Juan Romero,
Tucked his mirror in his shirt and gazed with worry towards the rocks
Where he last had seen the Gringo Pistolero.

Put the sights up to eight hundred, hold a yard left for the wind,
And there's one by-god aviso that will never flash again.
Weeping red tears from a third eye that's a gift he cannot feel
From the Springfield of the Gringo Pistolero.

"Chico Cano, you have stole your last damn US dollar bill.
I have come for you and all your companjeros.
You can fight and do your damnedest or just send the lady out,"
Came the echo of the Gringo Pistolero.

Bandit rifles down the canyon to the left and to the right,
Fearful eyes that watch and waited till the falling of the light,
Angry cutthroats who ignore the weeping lady on the floor,
And through the back door came the Gringo Pistolero.

Big Colt autos spitting thunder death at everything that moved,
Flashing lightning in the jacal long and narrow,
Ending hate and greed and cruelty with final flying truth
From the sure hand of the Gringo Pistolero.

One hot and smoking pistol dropped down empty in the dirt
And another flashed like magic from inside the Gringo's shirt,
And the lead storm never stopped 'til there was no one left unhurt,
But the lady and the Gringo Pistolero.

Word is spread to Ojinaga where the Conchos tumble down
And a man's death can come swifter than an arrow,
That although the law can be empty words until justice could be found,
For no border stopped the Gringo Pistolero.

And the old wives tell how Juan's bride came back beautiful and fair,
Lived happily through children and years of silver hair,
But the young girls said that Otero did not treat her well back there
So she left him for the Gringo Pistolero.

I’ll tell you a story, not long ago
High on a mountain in Idaho
In Idaho, I was living free
Sold a sawed-off shotgun to a deputy

Chorus:
Don’t shoot me down (don’t shoot me down)
Don’t shoot me down (don’t shoot me down)
Got a wife and kids on Ruby Ridge
Please don’t shoot me down

They killed a good dog, they killed my boy
My only son, my pride and joy
They shot my wife dead on the floor
Holding our baby in the cabin door

(Chorus)

If you take a notion and you want to go
Build you a cabin in Idaho
In Idaho, if you’re living free
Don’t sell no shotgun to no deputy

(Chorus)

THIS is my favorite gun song.

My two favourites:

The Ballad of Irving
Frank Gallop

He was short and fat, and rode out of the West
With a Mogen David on his silver vest.
He was mean and nasty right clear through,
Which was kinda weird, 'cause he was yellow too.

They called him Irving.
Big Irving.
Big, short Irving.
Big, short, fat Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

He came from the old Bar Mitzvah spread,
With a 10-gallon yarmulke on his head.
He always followed his mother's wishes,
Even on the range he used two sets of dishes.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big sissy Irving.
The two hundred and second fastest gun in the West.

A two hundred and one could draw faster than he,
But Irving was looking for two-oh-three.
Walked into Sol's Saloon like a man insane,
And ordered three fingers of two cents plain.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big sport Irving.
The three hundred and tenth fastest gun in the West.

One day Bad Max happened into town.
His aim was to shoot fat Irving down.
Bad Max said, "Draw, and draw right now!"
And Irving drew, drew a picture of a cow.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big gunfighter Irving.
The four hundred and eighty-second fastest gun in the West.

The James Boys was comin' on a train at first sun,
And the town said, "Irving, we need your gun."
When that train pulled in at the break of dawn,
Irving's gun was there, but Irving was gone.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big help, Irving.
The six hundred and fifty-second fastest gun in the West.

Well, finally Irving got three slugs in the belly.
It was right outside the Frontier Deli.
He was sittin' there twirlin' his gun around,
And butterfingers Irving gunned himself down!

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big dum-dum Irving.
Big dum-dum dead Irving.
The nine hundred and thirty-third fastest gun in the West.
Really.

Billy Get Your Guns lyrics
[William Bonney:] "Yoo-hoo, I'll make you famous!"

I just seen trouble, he's calling out your name tonight
Billy get your guns
You could walk away but I know you were born to fight
So Billy get your guns
The bandoleros are strung out in the promenade
Billy get your guns
And the wind whispers softly that the devil's to blame
Billy get your guns

Billy get your guns
There's trouble blowing like a hurricane
Billy get your guns
That's the price on your head for the price of fame
And it'll never change
Billy get your guns

There's a whiskey bottle empty sittin' on the bar
Billy get your guns
And some organ grinder singing about some sucker moving on
Billy get your guns
All the whores are hanging out waiting to get paid
Billy get your guns
From some Johnny on the spot who said hey keep the change baby
Billy get your guns

Billy get your guns
There's trouble blowing like a hurricane
Billy get your guns
That's the price on your head for the price of fame
And it'll never change
No, Billy get your guns

They christened you with whiskey
And there's fire running through your veins
Well you're an outlaw just the same
And every night a bullet wears your name

[Guitar solo]

Billy get your guns
There's trouble blowing like a hurricane
Billy get your guns
That's the price on your head for the price of fame
And it'll never change
No, Billy get your guns

I've seen a hangman dancing beneath the pale moonlight
Billy get your guns
And every stranger that you meet thinks it's his lucky night
Billy get your guns
I don't envy you Billy but I want to say
You better get your guns
'Cause every outlaw that's died will live to ride again
Billy get your guns

Billy get your guns
There's trouble blowing like a hurricane
Billy get your guns
That's the price on your head for the price of fame
And it'll never change
Billy get your guns, Billy get your guns
Billy get your guns, Billy get your guns

Would "Saturday Night Special" by Lynyrd Skynyrd count? The only downside is the lyrics seem to indicate a negative slant on handguns.

"Handguns are made for killin'
Ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me"


Oh well, it is still a cool song.

"Scattergun" by The Ramones.

Smooth bore, scattergun, you are the only one
To cover me when I sleep, cover me in my dreams
carry a smooth bore
Scattergun, steal from me there'll be no time to run
I got the bead on you, she fires true
Take what you want and I'll do what I have to do
Smooth bore, scattergun, scattergun, scattergun

Triple-O bucks the only shot for me
Cut any man right off at the knees
Don't need to bother the police,
I've got my Mossberg 590

Smooth bore, scattergun, you are the only one
To cover me when I sleep,
cover me in my dreams carry a smooth bore
Scattergun, steal from me there'll be no time to run
I got the bead on you, she fires true
Take what you want and I'll do what I have to do
Smooth bore, scattergun, scattergun, scattergun

Smooth bore, scattergun, you are the only one
To cover me when I sleep,
cover me in my dreams carry a smooth bore
Scattergun, scattergun, scattergun

1. "Shoot em up" by NAS
2. "Got yourself a gun" by NAS
3. "Me and my girlfriend" by Tupac

all are quintessential violent rap songs, simple and to the point.
None of that auto-tune crap they have on the radio today. :D

Johnny Cash had many great gun songs. Cocaine Blues and Don't Take Your Guns To Town are my two favorite.

Lynrd Skynyrd's Gimme Back My Bullets is another top one in my book. Hank Williams Jr's Country Boy Can Survive nearly rounds out my top five.

He looked down into her brown eyes, Said, Say a prayer for me.
She threw her arms around him, Whispered, God will keep us free.
They could hear the riders comin, He said, This is my last fight.
If they take me back to Texas, They won't take me back alive.
**Chorus**
There were seven Spanish Angels, At the alter of the Sun.
They were prayin' for the lovers, In the valley of the gun.
When the battle stopped, And the smoke cleared. There was thunder from the throne.
And seven Spanish angels, Took another angel home.
She reached down and picked the gun up, That lay smokin in his hand.
She said, Father please forgive me, I can't make it without my man.
And she knew the gun was empty, And she knew she couldn't win.
Her final prayer was answered, when the rifles fired again.
chorus

Sort of a gun song....playing Fallout: New Vegas, I got introduced to a tune called "Big Iron..."

ETA: looks like that one is popular!

Also saw some others in the comments I'd overlooked: ".45" by Shinedown, both versions of "Bad Company..."

And I'd almost forgotten:
"Johnny shot the jukebox, last night
Said it played a sad song, that made him cry
Went to his truck and got a .45...."

Oh, also.... "I Hung My Head" by Johnny Cash

"Early one mornin' with time to kill
I borrowed Jeb's rifle and sat on the hill
I saw a lone rider, crossin' the plain
I drew a bead on him to practice my aim
My brother's rifle went off in my hand
The shot rang out, across the land
The horse he kept runnin', the rider was dead
I hung my head, I hung my head"

Always reminds me of the four rules.

Click here please (http://youtu.be/yRls7nXI__U),,,

I had every TV Cowboy gun set there was,,,
I was in the 3rd or 4th grade when this song came out,,,
I was a "Wild Bunch" of one when I stepped out the house to play.

I remember how on many occasions my Mom would sing this song to me,,,
When I went out to play shoot-em-up with my compadres.
