songs about guns

Recommended Posts

Frankie shot Nellie Bligh

He is my man and he's doing me wrong
Frankie drew back to her kimona she took out a little 44
Rutty too too three times she shot right through that Hardwood door
She shot her man he was doing her wrong.

And last but not least, the grand daddy of all gun songs,

If you haven't broken a sweat by the end of that, you aren't human.

that an amazing  thread - I had no idea that guns have been so fetishised in this way 

 

and almost none of them are about hunting..... which is apparently why americans like them so much

 

Dylan

That's some seriously sweet guitar work. Outrageous folk touches all over decent blues, both masterful. Thx.

Hey Meli and soaks - I want to thank you for this thread.  And particularly for highlighting that the NRA and the supposed white conservative "gun culture" had little or nothing to do with the current gun madness in our society and that the decades of Hollywood, LA, Motown and Nashville Movie, TV and music industries had a huge effect on fetishizing gunz in our society.  Well fucking done, the both of you!

I'v always said Guns we a huge part of your culture. But don't blame the TV and music industries.

I can find hundreds of songs written well before TV and Music industry became a thing.
