Merry Clayton – Gimme Shelter lyrics

Ooh, the storm is threatening
My very life today
If I don't get me no shelter
I think I'm gonna fade away

War, children
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

See the fire sweeping
My very street today
Somebody oughta gimme shelter
Or I think I'm gonna fade away

War, children
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss me

Somebody, give me shelter
Give me shelter, somebody
Give me shelter

The flood is threatening
My very life today
Gimme, why don't you
Gimme some shelter
Or I think I'm gonna fade away

War, children
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Shot away, shot away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss, kiss, away...
