Do you want my gun, or do you want my life.
Do you want my gun, or do you want my wife.
Do you want my gun, or do you want my store.
Do you want just my gun, or much much more.
What is it you really want, I must ask myself,
for it is one of the few freedoms we have left.
Maybe it’s something more political you seek,
but cannot accomplish unless we become weak.
I think of Hitler, Lenin, Stalin and the rest,
fooling the people into thinking they knew best.
They traded their arms for hoes and wooden staves,
And they traded their freedom and wound up slaves.
