Hired Gun

Music by Troy Thompson
Lyrics by Dale Thompson
Lead: Rob Johnson

THIS SONG IS ABOUT AN ASSASSIN WHO PAINTS A PICTURE WITH A REALISTIC THEME. THE ASSASSIN ALWAYS POSES THIS QUESTIONTO HIS VICTIMS - "HOPE YOU AND JESUS HAVE IT ALL WORKED OUT.' THIS IS THE SAME QUESTION THAT GOD WILL ASK YOU WHEN YOU STAND BEFORE HIM TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF YOUR LIFE.

THEY PAY ME LOTS OF MONEY FOR WHAT I DO
I'M A DANCER MIDNIGHT ROMANCER UNDER THE MOON
I'M ON THE CLOCK, I LIKE TO ROCK, O DON'T WORK THE STREETS
YOU'LL BE AMAZED, YOUR EYES A GLAZED
WHEN I DO MY HIGH WIRE FEATS

EXTERMINATOR, RAWHID GANGSTER, I CAN EQUAL THE ODDS
I PAY FOR YOUR SINS WITH MY BOYISH GRIN, I CREATE THE FACADE
STEADY HAND, I'M A GENTLEMAN, I'VE GOT DEADLY AIM
WOMANIZER, LONE SURVIVOR, I LIKE TO PLAY THE GAME

HOPE YOU AND JESUS HAVE IT ALL WORKED OUT
I'M A HIRED GUN

THERE IS NO HEAVEN HERE ON EARTH, LOVE MUST RULE US ALL
BLACK DAYS ARE COMING, EVERY PRIDEFUL MAN WILL FALL
HAVE NO FEAR OR SHED A TEAR, BUT THERE WILL COME A DAY
WHEN I'M LOOKED IN THE EYE, ASKED TO DIE, AND I HEAR SOMEBODY SAY

HOPE YOU AND JESUS HAVE IT ALL WORKED OUT
I'M A HIRED GUN
