Pride And Glory - Machine Gun Man lyrics

...(Lyrically Accurate! / Only on Lyric Wiki!)...

Tell me what a young man, Mama
What's he got to live for?
Tossed in the shuffle of everyday war
Searchin' for some trouble
Which I'm sure he will find
Spend your whole life fightin', son
To meet your dying time

It's a shame (x2) Lord,
The trigger be his only friend
It's a shame, oh yeah
But it ain't, never gonna end, that's right

He's a pocketful of hate, that don't give a damn
What fate awaits the machine gun man?
Well, he ain't got no future, & he ain't got no plan
What fate awaits the machine gun man?

Can't see tomorrow, Lord, I don't see today
Trail of confusion, Lord, done leadin' my way
Say the only thing worth killin', Lord, be killin' time
Only soul worth savin' now, Mama, be savin' mine

[Pre-Chorus] / [Chorus]

He keeps shootin' Mama, Mama,
Like any old fool would do
Lord, the life he be leadin',
Ain't the one he had to choose
As he walks on out that door,
Mama breaks down to cry, oh as she waves -
the machine gun man, goodbye (goodbye x4)...

...The machine, yeah, gun man
...The machine gun man... yeah
