Kenny Wayne Shepherd – Shotgun Blues lyrics

Yeah all right
Whoa ooo oh
All right

Now I'm a man baby
I ain't no boy no more
Well now I'm a man baby
I ain't no boy no more
I spent 12 years in prison
Here I am standin at your door

I go to work in the morning
Your other man come creepin around
Yeah I go to work every mornin
Saw your other man come creepin around
I shot him
Til I come home with this shotgun baby
He was dead before he hit the ground
I shot him down
Oh I shot him down

Oh I did my time baby
And I still want you here with me
Well I served my time baby
But with you I will never be free
A broken man all alone
Is what I ain't never gonna be

Whoa take it down
All right
Oooo whoo
All right
Oh baby
All right

Oh I ain't afraid of no man
Whiskey and wine are my only friends
Yes I ain't afraid of no man
Still got a shotgun in my hands
Well now I'm afraid to come inside
I just might do it all over again...
