41 shots
41 shots
41 shots...
And we'll take that ride
'Cross this bloody river to the other side
41 shots they cut through the night
You''re kneeling over his body in the vestibule
Praying for his life

Well is it a gun?
Is it a knife?
Is it a wallet?
This is your life
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in your American skin

41 shots
41 shots
41 shots...

Lena gets her son ready for school
She says now on these streets Charles
You got to understand the rules
Promise me if an officer stops you that you''ll always be polite
And that you'll never ever run away
And promise momma you'll keep your hands in sight

'Cause is it a gun?
Is it a knife?
Is it a wallet?
This is your life
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in your American skin

41 shots
41 shots
41 shots...

Is it a gun?
Is it a knife?
Is it in your heart?
Is it in your eyes?
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret

41 shots and we'll take that ride
'Cross this bloody river to the other side
41 shots
I got my boots caked in mud
We're baptized in these waters and in each other's blood

Is it a knife?
Is it a wallet?
This is your life
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in your American skin

41 shots
