lyrics

Gatling Gun
(©K.Gordon)

If I had a rocket ship and a Gatling gun
I’d fly all the way up to the sun
Shoot it full of holes til I put out the light
Fall back to the ocean and call it a night

Gonna call John Henry help build me a railroad
Straight through the coal mines, pick up a big load
Dig a hole to China, ride it on down
Keep sinking low til I come out on higher ground

I still see her there
How the river wind plays her hair
Gold in fallen light
Right by my side

I could take a razor to my blank stare
Bleed out every memory of her in there
Toss my eyes like dice into the sky
But I’d come up empty, still asking why

I still see her there
How the river wind plays her hair
Gold in fallen light
On the levee by my side
Giving me her time
The wild meadow of her mind
The bloom of her soft kiss
Why can’t it stay like this
And nothing less?

These days nothing stays the same
But my tongue remembers the shape of her name
Love is free and free to roam
But I can’t quit no matter how far away she goes
