Last night I heard this politician
Talking bout his brand new mission
Liked his plans but they came undone
When he got around to God and guns

I don't know how he grew up
But it sure wasn't down at the hunting club
Cause if it was he'd understand
Just a little bit more about the working man

God and guns
Keep us strong
That's what this country
Was founded on

Well we might as well
Give up and run
If we let them take our
God and guns

Yeah out here in my neck of the woods
Where God is great and guns are
Good
You really can't know that much about them
If you think we'd be better off without them

Oh there was we aint forgot
You could rest all night with your doors unlocked
But there aint nobody safe no more
So you say your prayers and you thank the Lord

For that peacemaker
In your dresser drawer

God and guns
Keep us strong
That's what this country Lord
Was founded on

Well we might as well
Give up and run
If we let them take our
God and guns

Yeah we might as well
Give up and run
If we let them take our
God and guns

Yeah
Oh
God and guns

Don't let em take
Don't you let em take
Don't let em take
Our God and guns

Oh God and guns
Yeah keep us strong
That's what this country Lord
Was founded on

Well we might as well
Give up and run
If we let them take our
God and guns

God and guns

    This is talking about the second amendment "right to hold and bare arms" and the freedom of religion and how politicians are trying to take away both and if they do "we might as well give up and run".

    I recall a song called "Mr. Saturday Night Special" It was a great tune. It was on the other end of the spectrum from this awful hypocritical trash.
