lyrics

5. Shoot Me

I met a man he was a very bad man
he said "I have my grandfather's hands"
and he led me down a long twisty path
full of stones and broken glass and he
broke my back
and he hurt my heart and bit my skin and left his mark
and said "You old broken thing, you're gonna wait on me"
and he bent down to slip a yoke on me and I said

Oh, shoot me
I won't carry no burden baby I won't carry no burden baby
I was made for better things
and you better have a bullet for me

Go on take my heart, leave me an old broken thing
go on take my eyes , if you're gonna take your sight from me
go on take my ears, and I'll never hear you
call my name
go on and take my life if you would take your love from me
Shoot me I won't carry no burden baby
I won't carry no burden baby
I was made for better things
and this love's a burden on me


Just last night I had the strangest dream
I was walking underneath the leaves
how my heart still sang a song so sweet
I heard a little bird up in the tree
whistle it to me
Oh, shoot me baby
I won't carry no burden baby
I won't carry no burden baby

I met a man he was a very bad man
tell him by his old granddaddy hands
and he'll lead you down a long twisty path
full of old bones and broken glass
