Carrie Elkin – Shots Rang Out lyrics

Shots rang out shots rang out
Don't remember much that night
I was takin' in the mess
But there was just one pretty site
The tattoo on her chest
I only saw the wing
It was sticking out bright orange

And I wish that bird
Would just take her away
Far away far away from here

Shots rang out shots rang out
She just shivered in the cold
She just wore a wedding band
She had a daughter three years old
And a hand full of men

Oh I still have dreams
About the hands of those men
They would pay her and rape her again

Shots rang out shots rang out
She went running through the night
Went running through the storm
Watched the bullet taking flight
Heard his head hit the floor
Heard the sirens coming fast
She just waited in the door

And here we sit
'Neath these prison walls
Wearing stripes
Wearing birds
And that's all
Wearing stripes
Wearing birds
And that's all
