[Verse 1] Feel the pressure rise Hear the whistle blow Bought a ticket of her own accord To I don’t know Packed her heart in a travelling bag And never said "bye-bye" Something missing in the neighborhood Of her crying eyes
I stirred my coffee with the same spoon Knew her favorite tune
Gone shootin' My baby gone shootin'
[Verse 2:] Wrapped herself around Like a second skin Backed her favorite nag But she could never win I took an offer in another town She took another pill She was running in overdrive A victim of overkill
She never made it past the bedroom door What was she aiming for?
Gone shootin' She's gone Gone, gone, gone
Gone shootin' My baby's gone shooting (Gone shootin') How am I going to get her down? (Gone shootin') Look out, look out, look out (Gone shootin') I shouldn't get in her way (Gone shootin') Yeah, she sure is loaded (Gone shootin') She's gone, gone, gone, she's gone (Gone shootin')
