We Need A Lot More Guitars & A Lot Less Guns

Chorus #1:
We need a lot more guitars and a lot less guns
On the streets of America we’re being over run
By killers with no conscience shootin’ innocent ones
It happens somewhere everyday they darken the sun

“America The Beautiful” a song of praise
But sometimes the meaning gets lost in the haze
Americans everywhere I’m calling on you
Lets all pull together there’s a job we must do
Protecting innocent lives taken from me and you
And still protect our rights to amendment number two

Chorus #2:
We need a lot more guitars and a lot less guns
Life, liberty and happiness is being over run
By the killers who threaten the right to own a gun
For those who never wish to kill anyone

Hard hateful hearted stop and think just long
Enough to sit down and write a positive song
Go out and buy a guitar stead of stealin a gun
Play it mellow or metal you won’t hurt anyone
Head down to Steve Earle’s guitar town
Get in a circle, pick and sing and pass the guitar around

If guns are outlawed
Only outlaws will have guns
As blood from the victims flows and runs
Across the screen and on the streets of our town
I never heard of anybody being guitared down
Strat’s, Tele’s, Flat Tops
Never Hurt Anyone
We need a lot more guitars and a lot less guns

Chorus #1:
We need a lot more guitars and a lot less guns
On the streets of America we’re being over run
By killers with no conscience shootin’ innocent ones
It happens somewhere everyday they darken the sun
We need a lot more guitars and a lot less guns
