Guns Of Brixton

This song is by Dropkick Murphys and appears on the album The Early Years (1998) and on the album The Singles Collection, Volume 1 (2000).

This song is a cover of "The Guns of Brixton" by The Clash.
When they kick at your front door,
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head,
Or on the trigger of your gun.
When the law break in, how you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting on death row.

You can crush us,
You can bruise us,
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

The money feels good, and your life you like it well..
But surely your time will come, as in heaven, as in hell.
You see, he feels like Ivan,
Born under the Brixton sun.
His game is called survivin',
At the end of the harder they come.
You know it means no mercy.
They caught him with a gun.
No need for the Black Maria,
Goodbye to the Brixton sun.

You can crush us,
You can bruise us,
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

When they kick at your front door,
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head, Or on the trigger of your gun.

You can crush us,
You can bruise us,
You can even shoot us... Oh-The Guns Of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement,
Waiting in death row.
His game is called survivin',
As in heaven as in hell

You can crush us,
You can bruise us,
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

Oh, The Guns Of Brixton
Oh, The Guns Of Brixton
Oh, The Guns Of Brixton
Oh, The Guns Of Brixton
