lyrics

Lies and a .45

Started on the whiskey early
Leaving on the road to sin
They call that man the .45
Hope we never hear from him again

The fog lay heavy in the morning time
And they gave him till the dawn of the day
His finger on the trigger its the 45
Oblivion is his game

We’re prayed upon by human gods
And the inequity of evil men
He’s hiding in a bunker on the 18th hole
With the red button in his hands oh yeah
Behind the barrel of a loaded gun
Oh big red button in his hands oh yeah
behind the barrel of a loaded gun

The future is broken
We sit and we wonder why
Well they are cold eyed killers
And we all don't want to die

We’re prayed upon by human gods
And the inequity of evil men
He’s hiding in a bunker on the 18th hole
With the red button in his hands oh yeah
Behind the barrel of a load gun
Big red button in his hands oh yeah
Behind the barrel of a loaded gun

Lies and a .45 oh well
Plain and ugly and mean
As your kneeling by the edge of a shallow grave
I want to hear you plead

Oh Lies and a .45 oh well
Lies and a .45
Lies and a .45 oh well
Lies and a .45
Lies and a .45 oh well
Lies and a .45
Oh Lies and a .45 oh well
Lies and a .45
Lies and a .45 oh well
Lies and a .45
Oh thats how the west was won oh yeah
Lies and a .45
Lies and a .45 oh well
Lies and a .45
Down the barrel of a loaded gun oh yeah
Lies and a .45
