lyrics

I loved a man
He couldn't love me
I understand
Still I had his baby
Then one day at work
I got a phone call
There's something wrong at home
It's not right at all

Bring me your guns, Daddy,
And a little piece of mind.
Bring me your guns, Daddy,
Bring me all you can find.
Bring me your guns, Daddy,
But don't ask what for.
I'll tell you more, gladly,
When you get to my door.

I rushed right home,
My baby was fine.
But out on the sidewalk
Lay a body shaped chalkline.
A man he was killed
Right in front of my door
With my baby inside.
My heart hit the floor.

Bring me your guns, Daddy,
And a little piece of mind.
Bring me your guns, Daddy,
Bring me all you can find.
Bring me your guns, Daddy,
But don't ask what for.
I'll tell you more, gladly,
When you get to my door.

My daddy rushed over.
He asked, "What's your plan?"
I said, "All I know now
Is that I have to make a stand."
So I sat on my front porch
Polished guns, made 'em shine
To send a clear message
Don't *mess with me and mine.

Bring me your guns, Daddy,
And a little piece of mind.
Bring me your guns, Daddy,
Bring me all you can find.
Bring me your guns, Daddy,
But don't ask what for.
I'll tell you more, gladly,
When you get to my door.

When you get to my door, Daddy.
Hurry to my door.
