Time to Get a Gun

Fred Eaglesmith

My neighborís car got stole last night right out of his driveway
We heard the dog Ďa barking, we never paid them any mind
And Mary says sheís gonna lock the door from now on when we go away
Iíve been walking around this farm wondering if itís time

Time to get a gun, thatís what I been thinkiní
I could afford one if I did just a little less drinkiní
Time to put something between me and the sun
When the talking is over itís time to get a gun

Last week a government man was there when I walked out of my back door
He said ďIím sorry to bother you maíamĒ it donít matter anymore
ĎCause even while weíre talking right here where we stand
Theyíre making plans for a four-lane highway and a big ole overpass

Time to get a gun, thatís what I been thinkiní
I could afford one if I did just a little less drinkiní
Time to put something between me and the sun
When the talking is over itís time to get a gun

Mary says sheís worried about herself and her kids
Sheís never known anybody had a gun and her daddy never did
Well I think it should be up to me Ďcause when itís all said and done
Somebodyís gotta walk into the night and Iím gonna be that one

Time to get a gun, thatís what I been thinkiní
I could afford one if I did just a little less drinkiní
Time to put something between me and the sun
When the talking is over itís time to get a gun

When the party is over itís time to get a gun
