Business Side of a Gun

from by Shades of Day

/
  • a character — doesn’t have a name — who has certainly lost his way in life, maybe from childhood but just never really had a chance. He goes the way of crime and murder but he’s got this underlying goodness in him. He just can’t get past the evil part of it and all the hate and the hurt.

lyrics

here we go a tracking
across the great divide
searching for a story
that was legend far and wide

he was six foot seven
sharper than a tack
soon as he would fight you
he would slap you on the back
slap you on the back

you can't shake hands
with the business side of a gun
and you can't be friends
with the business side of a gun.. whoa-oo

his momma never never loved him
he musta been the devil's seed
named after daddy's whiskey
he was problems guaranteed
poor man looking desperate
hair trigger look in his eye
the beaten path was empty
but the promise never dies
the promise never dies

you can't shake hands
with the business side of a gun
and you can't be friends
with the business side of a gun
