Lyrics

it looked good on paper at the justice of the peace
but your promises are flimsy as the chickasaw treaty
Since i took your name - it’s only caused me misery
like when you call me baby, and raise your hand to me
the bullets in the barrel
dont make me bring the hammer down

i been prayin jesus send me Matthew, Mark or Luke
send a bolt of lightening, send me Xena, send me Zeus
cuz Wonder Woman aint coming with her lasso of truth
next time you call me baby and kick me with your boot
the bullets in the barrel
dont make me bring the hammer down

I packed a bag and hid it in the choke cherry by the back door
i plan to leave once you’re asleep - aint comin back no more
and i’ve taken every bullet i could find in every drawer
in case you call me baby, i’ll start a civil war
the bullets in the barrel
dont make me bring the hammer down
