lyrics

Well, I'm down on my luck, there's no air in my truck
And I can't hardly pay my bills
But I've got a permit and plenty of pride
And if I'm rubbed the wrong way, I'll fire at will

The last deputy saw no probable cause
And that's why he can go home tonight
Rumors make me berserk, she must think I'm a jerk
But when she gets off work she'll have one big surprise

I'm gonna shoot that girl of mine right between the eyes
The right to bear arms never did me no harm
But for her?
Tonight, she's gonna die

When I was a boy I'd play shoot 'em up games
Until I got a real gun of my own
Though I might seem a louse, when it comes to my spouse
Well, I'm not playing house, darlin'
This is my home

So after a few drinks at the usual place
Luther came up to me with a grin
He said "I like your wife, I'll be takin' what's mine"
And that's when I decided to drop both of them

I'm gonna shoot that girl of mine right between the eyes
The right to bear arms never did me no harm
But for her?
Tonight, she's gonna die

Now you can't be too careful, gotta cover your tracks
I've made these mistakes in the past
Prison's no fun and I'm my momma's son
So with a click and a bang?
I ain't goin' back.

They've closed down the bar, there they are
Clutching each other so tight
In the chamber there's three, one for her, him and me
Never let it be said my bark's worse than my bite
