    I Fought the Law- Bobby Fuller Four

    Hey Joe- Jimi Hendrix

    "Something to Shoot" By Chris Wall

    "...I was born and raised way out West
    And the thing that I like about living here best
    It's not the mountains, the valleys,
    not the hats or the boots
    It's having plenty of guns and something to shoot..."

    Only the Strong Survive by Stuck Mojo.

    I'm not a huge fan of their style but the lyrics are quite decent.

    Hank Williams Jr. had a song in the early '80s (I think) called "I've Got Rights". It was about vigilante-style justice.

    "I went down to the Mary Carter Paint Store"
    "Got me one of them Smith and Wesson Magnum forty-fours"

    I'm reminded of one of the last shows of HOMICIDE...Life on The Streets. Cops do revenge for shootout at police station with the background music of Paul Butterfield's Blues Bands' "One More Heartache". ;) Always wished I taped that episode.

    Otherwise there are numerous, most not even recorded, hip-hop gun songs...gotta a rhyme for glock...for sig?;)

    Gotta ber Marty Robbins "Big Iron"

    Beyond that.....

    Bad Company, "Bad Company"

    Marshall Tucker's, "Fire on the Mountain"

    Lynard Skynards, "Gimme Back My Bullets" (Not sure here).

    Here's "Big Iron"

    To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
    Hardly spoke to folks around him, didn't have too much to say,
    No one dared to ask his business, no one dared to make a slip
    The stranger there among them had a big iron on his hip,
    big iron on his hip

    It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
    He came riding from the south side, slowly lookin' all around
    "He's an outlaw loose and runnin'", came a whisper from each lip
    "And he's here to do some business with a big iron on his hip,
    big iron on his hip"

    In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
    Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
    He was vicious and a killer, though a youth of twenty four
    And the notches on his pistol numbered one and nineteen more,
    one and nineteen more

    Now the stranger started talkin' made it plain to folks around
    Was an Arizonia ranger, wouldn't be too long in town
    He was here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
    And he said it didn't matter that he was after Texas Red,
    after Texas Red

    Wasn't long before this story was relayed to Texas Red
    But the outlaw didn't worry, men who tried before were dead
    Twenty men had tried to take him, twenty men had made a slip,
    Twenty one would be the ranger with the big iron on his hip,
    big iron on his hip

    Now the morning past so quickly and it was time for them to meet
    It was twenty past eleven when they rode out in the street
    Folks were watchin' from their windows,
    every body held their breath,
    They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death,
    about to meet his death

    There was twenty feet between them
    when they stopped to make their play
    And the swiftness of the Ranger still talked about today
    Texas Red had not cleared leather when a bullet fairly ripped
    And the ranger's aim was deadly, with the big iron on his hip,
    big iron on his hip

    It was over in a moment and the crowd all gathered 'round
    There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground
    Oh, he might have went on livin' but he made one fatal slip
    When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip,
    big iron on his hip

    Big iron, big iron,
    Oh he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip,
    Big iron on his hip

    I'm not a big Country music fan, but you gotta love Johnny Cash:


    I got a friend named Whiskey Sam He was my boonierat buddy for a year in Nam He said is my country just a little off track Took 'em twenty-five years to welcome me back But, it's better than not coming back at all Many a good man I saw fall And even now, every time I dream I hear the men and the monkeys in the jungle scream

    Drive on, don't mean nothin' My children love me , but they don't understand And I got a woman who knows her man Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on

    I remember one night, Tex and me Rappelled in on a hot L.Z. We had our 16's on rock and roll But, with all that fire, I was scared and cold We were crazy, we were wild And I have seen the tiger smile I spit in a bamboo viper's face And I'd be dead , but by God's grace

    Drive on, don't mean nothin' My children love me, but they don't understand And I got a woman who knows her man Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on

    It was a real slow walk in a real sad rain And nobody tried to be John Wayne I came home, but Tex did not And I can't talk about the hit he got I got a little limp now when I walk Got a little tremolo when I talk But my letter read from Whiskey Sam You're a walkin' talkin' miracle from Vietnam

    Drive on, don't mean nothin' My children love me, but they don't understand And I got a woman who knows her man Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on


    I walked through a country court house square
    On a park bench an old man was sitting there
    I said, "Your court house is kinda run down"
    He said, "Naw, it'll do for our little town"
    I said, "Your flag pole has a leaned a little bit
    And that's a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it"
    He said, "Have a seat" and I sat down
    "Is this the first time you've been in our little town?"
    I said, "I think it is," he said "I don't like to brag
    But we're kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag
    You see, we got a little hole in that flag there
    When Washington took it across the Delaware
    And it got powder burned the night Francis Scott Key
    Sat watchin' it writing 'Say Can You See'
    And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
    With Packinham and Jackson tuggin' at its seams
    And it almost fell at the Alamo
    Beside the Texas flag but she waved on through
    She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
    And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill
    There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard and Bragg
    And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag
    On Flanders Field in World War I
    She got a big hole from a Bertha Gun
    She turned blood red in World War II
    She hung limp and low by the time it was through
    She was in Korea and Vietnam
    She went where she was sent by her Uncle Sam
    Native Americans, brown, yellow and white
    All shed red blood for the Stars and Stripes
    In her own good land here she's been abused
    She's been burned, dishonored, denied and refused
    And the government for which she stands
    Has been scandalized throughout the land
    And she's getting threadbare and wearing thin
    But she's in good shape for the shape she's in
    Cause she's been through the fire before
    And I believe she can take a whole lot more
    So we raise her up every morning, take her down every night
    We don't let her touch the ground and fold her up right
    On second thought I do like to brag
    Cause I'm mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

    The Refreshments -- "Banditos" (Mid - 90s, Almost 21st Century):

    "...Everybody knows
    That the world is full of stupid people
    So meet me at the mission at midnight
    And we'll divvy up there

    Everybody knows
    That the world is full of stupid people
    Well I got the pistol so I'll keep the Pesos
    -Yeah that seems fair..."

    Mexicali Blues
    Lyrics: John Barlow
    Music: Bob Weir
    Published By: Ice Nine Publishing Co., Inc.
    Laid back in an old saloon, with a peso in my hand
    Watching flies and children on the street
    And I catch a glimpse of black-eyed girls who giggle when I smile
    There's a little boy that wants to shine my feet
    And it's three days ride from Bakersfield
    And I don't know why I came
    I guess I came to keep from payin' dues
    So instead I've got a bottle and a girl who's just fourteen
    And a damned good case of the Mexicali blues

    Is there anything a man don't stand to lose
    When the devil wants to take it all away
    Cherish well your thoughts, keep a tight grip on your booze
    'Cause thinking and drinking are all I have today

    She said her name was Billie Jean and she was fresh in town
    I didn't know her stage-line ran from hell
    She had raven hair, a ruffled dress, a necklace made of gold
    And all the french perfume you'd care to smell
    She took me up in to her room and whispered in my ear
    Go on my friend, do anything you choose
    Now I'm payin' for those happy hours I spent there in her arms
    With a lifetime's worth of the Mexicali blues


    And then a man rode in to town, some thought he was the law
    Billie Jean was waiting when he came
    She told me he would take her if I didn't use my gun
    And I'd have no one but myself to blame
    I went down to those dusty streets, blood was on my mind
    I guess that stranger hadn't heard the news
    'Cause I shot first and killed him, Lord he didn't even draw
    And he made me trade the gallows for the Mexicali blues

    Is there anything a man don't stand to lose
    When he lets a woman hold him in her hands
    You just might find yourself out there on horseback in the dark
    Just riding and running across those desert sands

    Well there was that song by Sonny and Cher about "Bang, Bang my baby shot me down".

    Junior Walker and the Allstars "Shotgun".

    Johnny Cash "Don't Take Your Guns to Town Son".

    "My Baby Loves the Western Movies" I believe it is the Coasters.
    The ricochey sound is fantastic.

    "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"- Gene Pitney

    "Ringo"- Lorne Greene

    For big guns you have Johnny Hortons "Sink The Bismark" and I believe he did "The Battle of New Orleans" >fired our guns and they commenced a running, on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.(British)

    This is a great thread as it has set me to thinking cause I know there are a bunch more!
