Levellers – Barrel Of A Gun lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4

In a strange land
Far from these shores
Lay two men and a woman
Killed by the law

No matter what country
Under the sun
You can't mete justice
From the barrel of a gun

A car bomb they say
The S. A. S. On offense
Shot in the back
Makes no difference

Oh no, Oh no,
So no matter what country
Under the sun
You can't mete justice
From the barrel of a gun, a gun.

Shoot to kill
'til both sides have their fill
'til both sides have their martyrs
And all the kids have no fathers

Oh no, oh no,
So, no matter what country
Under the sun
You can't mete justice
The barrel of a gun

Oh, 'til you mothers have no sons
'til your battle it is won
Tell both sides
They have lost
All the blood that it cost

So, no matter what country
Under the sun
You can't mete justice
No, from the barrel of a gun
