Johnny Got A Gun

This song is by The Burns Sisters and appears on the album In This World (1997).

Johnny got a gun, he got it from a friend
Gave it to a lover, passed it on again
Johnny got a gun, he better put it on the shelf
Dirty little secret he's keeping to himself

Oh, who you gonna shoot tonight, Johnny?
Who's it gonna be tonight?

Johnny's looking bad, and he's looking for a friend
With the kiss of Judas, betray him in the end
Johnny's running scared and he's running out of time
And in the name of passion, commits another crime

Oh, who you gonna shoot tonight, Johnny?
Who's it gonna be tonight?
You need someone to hold you tight, Johnny
You're all alone
You got no one

Johnny's going mad, another victim of the night,
Finger on the trigger, he's got no hope in sight
Johnny lost a friend about a month ago
He shot him in the heart, claimed he didn't know

Oh, who you gonna shoot tonight, Johnny?
Who's it gonna be tonight?
You do it but it don't seem right, Johnny
It's not like you to be so cruel
Don't shoot that gun tonight

Oh, who you gonna shoot tonight, Johnny?
Who's it gonna be tonight?
You need someone to hold you tight, Johnny
Tears and shame, no one to blame
Don't shoot that gun tonight
