Shotgun Bobby

Billy coming in for one more day
Grip so tight, cant slip away
Around the corner comes Johnny Cash
Billy thrown out like yesterdays trash

Main street windows boarded up
Johnny outside with a paper cup
Got a mortgage and a kid
Not really sure what he did

Shotgun Bobby coming down
Shotgun Bobby spraying his round
Hitting every target in his sight
Screaming about the new American fight

It should have been tight long ago
Once jobs started heading into Mexico
But the bank was giving Johnny more and more
And he kept improving his store

Shotgun Bobby coming down
Shotgun Bobby spraying his round
Hitting every target in his sight
Screaming about the new American fight

So Billy drives up Main Street one last time
And tosses in Johnny’s cup his final dime
Money no longer finds its way down here
As ghosts of days past disappear

Shotgun Bobby coming down
Shotgun Bobby spraying his round
Hitting every target in his sight
Screaming about the new American fight
