Fred Eaglesmith – Time To Get A Gun lyrics

My neighbour's car got stole last night
Right out of his driveway
We heard the dogs a'barkin'
We never paid 'em any mind
Mary says she's gonna lock the door
From now on when we go away
And I've been walkin' around this farm
Wondering if it's time
Time to get a gun
That's what I've been thinking
I could afford one
If I did just a little less drinking
Time to put something
Between me and the sun
When the talking is over
It's time to get a gun
Last week the Government Man was there
When I walked out of my back door
He said I'm sorry to bother you, son
But it don't matter anymore
'Cause even while we're talkin'
Right here where we stand
They're making plans for a four lane highway
And a big old overpass
Time to get a gun
That's what I've been thinking
I could afford one
If I did just a little less drinking
Time to put something
Between me and the sun
When the talking is over
It's time to get a gun
Mary says she's worried
About herself and the kids
She's never known anybody had a gun
And her daddy never did
But I think it should be up to me
'Cause when it's all said and done
Somebody's got to walk into the night
Well, I'm gonna be that one
Time to get a gun
That's what I've been thinking
I could afford one
If I did just a little less drinking
Time to put something
Between me and the sun
When the talking is over
I'ts time to get a gun
When the talking is over
It's time to get a gun
When the talking is over
It's time to get a gun
